Hear me Now

How’s all your drama been lately?
Found all your revenge?
Do you really think its funny,
To mess with all your friends?
And I’m the one standing in the background
Watching it never end
That was me, trying to play nice
This is me, as I start a fight
Fighting, Fighting

(Chorus)
Can you hear me now,
As I cry from the mountain?
Is it easy,
To ignore while I’m shouting?
But no mountain is too steep, no
Can you hear me now,
After treating me like dirt
Sick of it now,
‘Cause when I get cut it hurts
But no cut can be too deep, no
Too deep, for me

I don’t care for your opinion
You don’t run our lives
You say carelessly the first thing
That comes to your mind
And I’m the one standing in the background
Keeping it all inside
You say I’m, too quiet and soft
This is me, biting my tongue off
Biting, Biting

(Chorus)
Can you hear me now,
As I cry from the mountain?
Is it easy,
To ignore while I’m shouting?
But no mountain is too steep, no
Can you hear me now,
After treating me like dirt?

Sick of it now,

‘Cause when I get cut it hurts
But no cut can be too deep, no
Too deep, for me

Too deep, Too deep
For me, For me

You think you’re better
It’s all the same
It doesn’t matter
It’s not a game
So listen to everybody I’ve brought here
And they all know your name

Can you hear us now,
As we cry from the mountain?
Is it easy,
To ignore while we’re shouting?
But no mountain is too steep, no
Can you hear us now,
After treating us like dirt?
Sick of it now,
‘Cause when we get cut it hurts
But no cut can be too deep, no

Do you know how long,
I’ve been waiting to say this?
It bottles up
Inside–I can’t contain it
‘There something I should repeat? No?
Good, you hear me
