If You Must Know

(Verse 1)
I’m not just a pretty face,
No!
Underneath, I have scars just like everyone else,
I’m crushed, broken, bruised
Hammered into the ground
Populations walk all over me like dirty gum.
These people try to put you down
Or spit on your shoes
To your face they’ll try their best to cover up the lie .

 

(Chorus)
With these conscious gasps,
I’ve sobbed help me, help me at every sunset.
I inhale the poison with my lungs;
Gag on toxins in my blood.
So I’ll shout I’m fine, I’m fine at every sunrise.

 

(Verse 2)
The typical individual
Looks at me like a queen,
But I feel just the opposite,
When a few weeks later,
It was like I was never there
People come and go
Everyone has turned their backs on me
Who is to be a friend for me?
When no one you’ve ever known stuck by your side?

 

(Chorus)
With these conscious gasps,
I’ve sobbed help me, help me at every sunset.
I inhale the poison with my lungs;
Gag on toxins in my blood.
So I’ll shout I’m fine, I’m fine at every sunrise.

 

(Verse 3)
With every single person
I’ve found one,
Who’s stuck up and fighted for me time again.
That would be the one I want to call my own
The one who was always in love with another,
The one who always cared but always in another way

I am here to tell you that I love you.

 

(Outro)
I want you to love me like you want to.
I want you to see what’s in front of you;
The one who will be here,
Time after time again
I want to hold you tight,
And see your handsome smile.
But you barely even notice me,
Embrace me! Just chase me!
I want to feel your arms wrapped around me
But you were just there killing me with nothingness
And blank stares
I can’t understand you with all those lies.
And the weight falling all around me
Scream bloody hell why this and that?

Shut up and kiss me.

 

(Final Chorus)
With these conscious gasps,
I’ve sobbed help me, help me at every sunset.
I inhale the poison with my lungs;
Gag on toxins in my blood.
So I’ll shout I’m fine, I’m fine at every sunrise.
