I died to keep you happy
I drowned out parts of me
The ones that drove you mad
But it was harder than it seemed

You see, those **** parts
Were woven in my soul
And without those missing pieces
Who dared to call me whole

I couldn't wrap my head around it
You tried to suffocate my being
I was a brilliant star
Maybe much too bright to see it

And so I let you go
Because I'd never understand
I had to force myself
To find the beauty in me again
