Give Up

Give Up (12/5/2011)

When does the hurting stop
When do you reach your limit
When do i look at the sky
And say to hell
With it all
With the pain
With the past
It can't paint my canvas afterall
So why can't i move
Past this?

I'm tired
I'm weary
Of carrying it all
Of smiling
Even when i break and fall
What is the point in these emotions
Why do they exist?
When they make me feel like
Giving up

So how do i get to a point
Where the memories of anything
Don't hurt my soul
And how do i go on
When all of me screams
I can't have a soul

I'm tired
I'm weary
Of carrying it all
Of smiling
Even when i break and fall
What is the point in these emotions
Why do they exist?
When they make me feel like
Giving up

Oh, I tell myself theres no god
Nobody to help me
But i always
Always hope that somebody will find me
That they'll dust me down
And with a click of their fingers
All my doubts and worries will dissappear
But thats not real
Just another fantasy

I'm tired
I'm weary
Of carrying it all
Of smiling
Even when i break and fall
What is the point in these emotions
Why do they exist?
When they make me feel like
Giving up

I don't 'wanna give up
Though i feel my body crumple at the end of everyday
Though i know i'm on the edge of tears
In countless different ways

Oh, I may be tired
I may be weary
Carrying it all may be such a burden
But despite all the falls and the breaks
I still get up and smile it away
And that's 'gotta take strength right?
To do that every single time
To handle these emotions
To never give up
It's 'gotta take a special kind of strength
Oh, I feel like giving up
But I won't, no, I won't
I won't give up 

The End
