Can't Say Okay

The day when you just can’t find the words to say
“I’m okay.”

The tears that stream down your face
But you won’t let them see your pain.

So you run away
Hiding from the words they might say
Hiding from the truth you just can’t take
So you just run, away.

It wasn’t your choice to live this way
Acting as if you’re in a play.

The tears that stream down your face
But you won’t let them see your pain.

So you run away
Hiding from the words they might say
Hiding from the truth you just can’t take
So you just run, away.

Everyone who can looks the other way
Counting the moments they must stay

The tears that stream down your face
But you won’t let them see your pain.

So you run away
Hiding from the words they might say
Hiding from the truth you just can’t take
So you just run, away.

And again the day comes when you can’t say
“I’m okay.”
