Close your eyes,
What do you see?
I bet it’s dark
On the darkness.
Now, what do you see?
As mine are shut,
I see fear
I see pain
I feel pain
A bitter tear down my cheek
Want to know why?
I may not be able to tell you how i’m broken.
But at least, i try cleaning my scars
In between, i felt the depth and pain
Only but a tear to scream the pain.
I may be young, charismatic, but not dumb to tell when it hurts.
Maybe what hurts me the most is the picture in my head
Maybe it’s the mistakes i always avoid to make
Maybe it’s the fears i create in my mind
Maybe it’s the voice inside that stands in between my way
Maybe what hurts me the most is me.
I feel so dead but alive
So in pain
I’m breathing life away
It’s hard to keep on keeping on
Don’t even know which way is up,just keep spinning down, around and down.
Welcome to my nightmare.
