I have something that I need to tell you
Something that I want to share
But before I do, I need to know…
Do you even care?
You say you’ll be there
That you’ll never leave
When you see the real me?
When my layers have all been peeled away
When I’ve been pushed into a corner, nowhere left to hide
Will you remember me?
And the promise that you made that day?
People walk away
They don’t care
It scares them; I scare them; and I think it’s better this way
You say I mean something to you
That you will be my lifeline
But I think that you promised that in haste
Because when you see inside me, deep down, you’ll realize that being there is a waste
Maybe it’s better this way
I don’t know, maybe I should just stay out of your way
And go about with a smile
While all the while
I’m wishing I was dead
