Who Needs It?

Every night I stay up late,
And think about my day,
Just to know one thing.
The tuth is everyone has someone,
Everyone but me can have fun,
And I hide in the shadows of my room.

Who needs that someone to lean on?
You just scream it to the world.
My friends aren’t even there,
So now I ask,
Who needs it?

I have my good days and my bad days,
And one always beats the other,
I just don’t get it.
I still have my shattered dreams,
And still have my hollow heart,
That wants to die.

Who needs that special place to go to?
The doors are always locked and the key is never there.
Noone to come and pull me from the water,
So now I ask,
Who needs it?

I look behind my shoulder,
Still noone’s there to come.
You might want to be the one,
But I know deep inside,
You don’t want me.

The sky is grey with tears,
I know there’s no sun today.
Still many things are left unsaid,
But what difference will it make when I’m dead?

Who needs a parachute when you’re falling?
The ground is hard and cold.
Your arms will never open for me,
So now I ask,
Who needs it?

I wrote this song one day where I got turned down. I felt like it was the end of the world. I felt like noone was there for me and nobody loved me
