"Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened."
-Dr. Seuss

"Silence is golden, but duct tape is silver."

A word may seem like just a word
But it's much more than that
It's a tool used to hurt
A tool used to fight back.
It leaves behind a mark
That stays with you for life
A painful, searing scar
That tells the story of a fight.

What can I say
To make it all okay?
What can I do
To change the world for you?
And is there anything
That I can help you with?
Cuz I know how it feels
I know how it feels...

And words spoken behind your back
Make you feel desperate inside
And pain worse than that
Is impossible to find.
It burns at your heart
And tears at your soul
Alone in the dark
Unwanted and cold.


To be your own best friend
To be "out" instead of "in"
To look at the world
Through injured eyes
To have no one
Hear your cries...
I've been there
I've done that
And now there's no,
Turning back
