Acting like everything is alright
Just fake it
Take that pain
Bury it deep inside
But what happens
When someone looks?

Heal
Heal
HEAL
HEAL **** IT!!

These scars just won't fade
This, I simply cannot evade
Please
Say nothing
I fell
Don't hold me under
Don't pull me under

Let me live
Let me have this
"Normal" childhood
While I still can

Fading, yes
But gone, no
So
Let me grow
Let me be what there is for me

I did wrong
Yes
But spare me!

Let me live
Don't torture me
Driving me beyond insane

Miss
I am but a child
Please
For the sake of living
Let me

Don't rip me away
From those I love
And all I know
Let me live
Let me grow

For the sake of a child
Let me stay
Let me live...

"The Pain"


I refuse the pains of sadness
And pay the price unwillingly
I travel from moment to moment
Evading myself
Then wonder who I am

If you take a minute
To watch the seconds
You'll realise
These hours
Aren't ours
They're stolen
We ought to be careful
The hands of time
Hold our futures
