I play songs that make me happy I play songs to keep me down I play songs to keep me laughing like you’re here But who’ll hear me laughing out loud?
I had friends I could speak my mind to I had friends that couldn’t care I had friends that I did wrong to in high school And college, boy was I even there?
We had fun, you and I did We had fun apart from ourselves We had fun when we were younger and tighter together, so why Did we run from our wealth?
We were silly, inside and outside We were silly simply for a laugh We were silly to think you’d get over it and were silly To think it would last
You’re still here and so am I, friend You’re still here only in a different town You’re still here and time is your friend let’s end this and Make amends while we’re still around
You’re afraid, how do you think I feel? You’re afraid and I’m nervous myself You’re afraid of the future and past hurts We can heal after we forgive ourselves Oh yes, we can heal after we forgive ourselves
We use makeup and clothes as an armor. We use makeup to cover our scars; We dress up to look confident and strong. We use it differently; Some used it to make themselves more beautiful; Some used it to protect themselves from getting bullied, mock and etc. Not just by using makeup and clothes as an armor, But we should also use who we truly are as an armor. Never forget about your true selves just because you use makeup and clothes as an armor, But we should also embrace and love ourselves for who we truly are. Covering up scars and dressing up to look confident and strong is just a quality of our armor ; But what we really have as an armor is ourselves.
The nights are as young as we are, The days, are as long as our nightmares, Our dreams are short, But long during, To compare ourselves with others, Is like comparing our nightmares, They'll never be the same, For one person's nightmares, Are another's day dream.
