I have limits to my strength.
And my buildings sometimes fall.
I try to find the reasons why
Sometimes they won't get up at all.

I can't help but shed my tears.
As pain drowns me from inside.
Wanting just one breath of air
I'd have at least one breath of life.

I try to lock this hurt away.
And I do it myself, too.
Because no one seems to notice.
My broken heart placed in plain view.

But I lay my soul to rest.
And try forgetting as I do.
Because weakness has become me.
And not one person has a clue.
