courage

By , arcata, CA
i told another lie today
and i got through this day
no one saw through my games
i know the right words to say
like "i don't know"
"I'm used to it anyway"
then someone tells me how sad i look
and for a moment
for a moment
i fake I'm happy
but when I'm alone
no one hears me cry

i you to know
I'm not through the night
some days I'm still fighting
to walk towards the light
i need to know
that I'll be okay
will someone help me make it through another day?

i don't know the first tI'me
i felt so vulnerable
the day i chose not to trust
what i do know is how it changed
my life forever
i know, i should know better
there are days when i think I'm okay
and for a moment
for a moment i find hope
but there are days when I'm not okay
and i need some help
so I'm letting go

i need you to know
I'm not through the night
some days I'm still fighting to walk towards the light
i need to know that I'll be okay
will someone help me make it through another day?

i need to know, I'm not on my own
these secrets are walls that keep me alone
i don't know when
but i know how
together we can make it through somehow
together we can make it through somehow
