You know something is wrong…
When even in your own house
You don’t feel at home
It’s a constant struggle…
And everywhere you go
You seem to run into trouble
What is a person to do?
When you feel there’s no place to go to
Trying to find the answers
But no one there to help you
A place full of people, yet still feel alone
Begging for some attention
Yet you’re still just a lost soul
Pain is so deep, it has you screaming
Doesn’t even matter when no one’s listening
I try to ease the pain by going to sleep
But I can’t even find comfort in my own dreams…
And your face still haunts me
It’s there, everywhere I go and in everything that I see
I was just a little girl…
How was it so easy for you to rip apart my world?
You corrupted my innocence…
Shattered my heart, and left me discontent.
And now forever will I be scarred
From all the baggage you left behind
I try so hard to get it out of my mind
But it’s as if my memories are stuck on rewind…
And I keep hearing your voice in the back of brain
And I swear it’s driving me insane.
One day, you’ll be the death of me…
And that will be the only way to get rid of this misery.
I hate you for what you’ve done to me
And forgiveness in my eyes is what you’ll never see.
