Empty streets filled with faces you don't know

In a crowd tryna stand out 

But no matter where you are  

The darkness isn't far.. 

I wish you understood all the lies and talk of surviving. 

Masking ourselves because they expect us to provide for them.

You don't know what it's like. 

You don't know what I go through 

You don't know how I feel

So don't tell me you do! 

They say It's like a pyscho has inhabited my head.

Everybody lookin at me like I should be dead.

Making me so anxious I want to run and hide 

but instead I pretend to hold my head up high.

Smile with ease and count to three

Take a deep breath

Then I screamed at top of my lungs

We're gonna run through fire like we've never been burnt

We're gonna laugh out loud like we've never been hurt

We gonna shout it out to the edge of the world

We're gonna scream on rooftops dance in the rain

We'll open up our hearts  

forget all the pain... 

Feel like you're runnin' out of breath? 

Tryna so hard to find yourself. 

Looking in every direction searching for help. 

They never see behind my eye's 

The pain, hurt and all the lie's

While they look at me and see a happy version. 

But The truth is so much worse than.

All the Word's that I left unspoken 

I know it's hard, I know it's hurts 

But I've tried to love myself but it really doesn't work.

Everyday gets harder to love myself

I'm breaking apart scattered on The ground I'm constantly shaking .

It's not possible to explain 

Why i am

Forever feeling

This way. 

It's single every day!


  • You won't know how to truly love yourself because humanity don't know how to love. Only God knows and it is through his love that we will know how to truly love ourselves and others.
