It's so hard to put my feelings into words
I write and write but it never seems right
Constantly searching for the right words to say
When there's nothing inside but the constant pain
The words never seem to express how I really feel
Thoughts running like mad
All through my head
Trying to sort them out
But only finding out
That I'm not who I thought I was
I have more pain buried inside than anyone will ever know
That's because I'll never let it show
I don't want you to know
How I hate myself and the life I lead
I guess I was doomed to live this way
There's nothing I can do to change the way things are
Nothing will erase the scars that I live with
They are the constant reminders of how life used to be
I guess I have no choice but to continue living this life
Trying ever so hard to be the me that everyone sees
The me everyone knows and loves
The me hiding away from everything and never letting it show
