Hold Me! - so I can make it through this night.
Hold Me! - 'till tomorrows' sun - fills the room with light
Hold Me! - 'till the pain within my chest has gone away
Brush away the fears - for I must face another day.
For my heart feels like it's breaking
from the thoughts inside my mind
And even when I close my eyes
it is not peace I find.
The hope of yesterday has gone
despair now fills it's place
These eyes that once saw wonder -
now spill tears down my face.
I thought that I was right
to seek perfection at all times
That people would be proud of me
if only I could shine.
But that light has long since dimmed -
all was not what it had seemed
That I had the life I wanted
was no more than just a dream.
For there was no one there to hold me
in the darkness of the night
And there was silence from my corner
when I stood up to fight.
My voice has now been taken
swallowed by the tide
Of doubt - and fear - and misery
There is no where left to hide.
Exposed and all alone
I face this path that lies ahead
For where people tried to show their love
I saw their pity there instead
So through this self destructive tyranny
that holds no compromise
I daily take another step
Into a world that I despise
I am no longer strong
or full of promise to do well
For I face a world of darkness
where I must learn to dwell
There is no pride in knowing
that in order to succeed
You're greatest single asset
is you're power to deceive
But I can smile - and I can laugh
to hide the thoughts within my mind.
But do not remove that mask -
No one wants to see behind.
If I walk forward down this path -
my future will unfurl.
But let me treasure my insanity!
In this sane - but hostile - world.
