It's summertime
And you're not with me

I imagine us together in a park somewhere
Laughing together
Smiling together
Or even crying together
Just so long as we're
Together

But you're not here
They say you've moved on
They say you're world doesn't have us in it
Anymore

So I guess
I hope you're enjoying the sun

we used to tell you
every day
for fear
of losing you to our pain
and you not knowing
how much we cared

and now
I still tell you every day
whether you hear it or not
whether you believe it or not
but I still tell you

and I'm scared
that I'll never get to tell you to your face
again.

You can take away my liberty
You can take away my freedom of choice
You can take away my joy and my smile
But you can't take away my voice

You can shut the doors
And you can shut out the light
You can take away the people I love
But you can't take away my fight

Cause every time you knock me down
I'll get right back up
You might not care about what happens to me
But I do

I will use my voice
I will fight my fight

Shadows prove that there is light.

You were our rock
But we ground you down too much
So now you're sinking sand
And I'm sinking in the memories of you

I'm a wreck
But only because you wrecked me

I'm a mess
But only because you messed me up

I'm broken
But only because you broke me

And still you say you're helping

Because to you, I am just another of your case-load
You don't have time for me, or what I think of all this

But I have time for me
So listen

You have broken more than you have fixed
You have hurt me more than I can put into words

And just because I'm in your "care"
Doesn't mean you've cared about me

Just because I have a number
That does not mean I am a number

I am not a number

I'm hurting
I'm really hurting
But it's been like that for years now

I'm hurting
I'm really hurting
But I've run out of tears now

I'm hurting
I'm really hurting
But I'm "getting the right help" now

I'm hurting
I'm really hurting
But they're tied of hearing that now

So I'm hurting
I'm really hurting
But I do it quietly now

I'm hurting
I'm really hurting
But I choose to stay unnoticed now

I'm hurting
I'm really hurting
But I keep it to myself now

Because I'm hurting
I'm really hurting
But nobody wants to see it now
