If you chase two rabbits, you will lose them both.

Do not go gentle into that good night but rage, rage against the dying of the light.
- Dylan Thomas


[chorus]
You think I never cried;
But I always ached inside;
Waiting for this pain;
To go away.
But it never left my heart;
It never left my soul;
No, it’s still there;
Always wanting more.

 

You paint me as someone I’m not;
You act like I’m some kind of hotshot;
But I am just like you;
And yet far from you too.
You act like I’m some ice queen;
Some kind of go-between;
But you never look beyond;
This fragile screen.

 

[chorus]
You think I never cried;
But I always ached inside;
Waiting for this pain;
To go away.
But it never left my heart;
It never left my soul;
No, it’s still there;
Always wanting more.

 

You never seek the truth;
I’m not asking you to be a sleuth;
Just dig a little deeper;
To see what I conquer.
You could see the pieces you glean;
You could see beyond my routine;
To the weeping girl;
Who hides behind the scene.

 

[chorus]
You think I never cried;
But I always ached inside;
Waiting for this pain;
To go away.
But it never left my heart;
It never left my soul;
No, it’s still there;
Always wanting more.


So, before you judge me;
You should know it’s not all smiles and glee;
That is all a front;
Some kind of big stunt.
My heart feels empty inside;
I’m crying at my bedside;
A sadness that never absconds;
I wish I’d never lied.


[chorus]
You think I never cried;
But I always ached inside;
Waiting for this pain;
To go away.
But it never left my heart;
It never left my soul;
No, it’s still there;
Always wanting more.
