I only cry when there’s no one around me

Nobody who can see

This life that I’m trying to flee

These chains I’m trying to break free

I only cry when there’s no one around me

Nobody who can see

No one can hear my plea

They all disagree


I build up my adorned shrine

In hopes it will take the eyes away from here

To hide these blurring lines

Things aren’t as they appear

I will redefine

What it means to disappear


I only cry when there’s no one around me

Nobody who can see

This life that I’m trying to flee

These chains I’m trying to break free

I only cry when there’s no one around me

Nobody who can see

No one can hear my plea

They all disagree


I want to be invisible

Yet solid as a wall

This pain is inexplicable

I can’t let them see me fall

We used to be miscible

Now our differences stand tall


I only cry when there’s no one around me

Nobody who can see

This life that I’m trying to flee

These chains I’m trying to break free

I only cry when there’s no one around me

Nobody who can see

No one can hear my plea

They all disagree


I look back at the things that were said

All I find is heartbreak

Words that were rushed before they could register in our heads

Despite that, not one word I said was a mistake

I will love him even if it leaves me lying here dead

But there is one thing I must know, for our sake


I only cry when there’s no one around me

Nobody who can see

This life that I’m trying to flee

These chains I’m trying to break free

I only cry when there’s no one around me

Nobody who can see

No one can hear my plea

They all disagree


You change your mind like the change of the tide

I don’t know what the truth is anymore

When you once could make me happy, since then I have cried

The promises you made, oh you can’t just ignore

No matter how hard I’ve tried

Things can’t go back to how they were before


I only cry when there’s no one around me

Nobody who can see

This life that I’m trying to flee

These chains I’m trying to break free

I only cry when there’s no one around me

Nobody who can see

No one can hear my plea

They all disagree
