I wish that I could meet the me inside your head I don't think I'd like the things that she says I wish I could erase the stencil of me you traced Free your mind to see a different shape I would deconstruct the shadow that has taken my place And help you see the real me that has somehow been replaced Paint a new and clearer picture, however long it takes I want to stay until you see her, however high the stakes
Tell me not to speak But I never seem to listen, I make the same mistakes and the same mistakes, I guess hoping I am forgiven.
I should have been quiet, I should have obeyed what I always remember, That I should keep it to myself and pretend everything’s hidden.
Imagine myself losing my mind, I think half the feelings are real, But not to breaking point: (Even if I want to) I’m not screaming at the walls, I’m not crying all day, I’m not trying to get through to them whilst acting insane.
Multiple times I’ve told myself, To pretend I never think of this, Maybe they’ll forget, think you’ve slipped out of it. I was never someone who didn’t express, But now it’s always failing; Few things I need and am not getting.
