And the cuts aren't healing
And my head is reeling
As I cry
Looking at the paper
Aware of all the failure
Please can you stop saying I don't try

And my heart is bleeding
As you say how your feeling
And I cry
Screaming that you've no right
Turning it to a fight
Everyone stop saying I don't try

I don't know how else to make it so I try
Trying harder
And I just end up falling further
Drowning in pills and alcohol
And all the words you said all along to me

I'm sorry I don't try enough
Thank you for calling out my bluff
As I cry
And curl into a ball
Watch me as I fall
It's okay just tell me I don't try
'Cause I don't think I'll try any longer..

The End
