You Don't Know

You Don't Know (17/2/2012)

Stop watching me
With those judgemental eyes
Cause I know what lurks behind
Your thinking
What a silly adolescent girl
She thinks she's got depression
Oh, How can I fake sadness?
When it feels so bone deep
How can I fake madness?
When I feel my thoughts go out of control

You don't know what I'm thinking
You don't know what I'm feeling
So stop acting like you do
Stop saying things like
Your being silly now
Not all that bad now
Your just being overdramatic

I know what I'm thinking
I know what I'm feeling
And I'm telling you
This sadness is real
This anger is real
This overboard of emotions
I could not begin to pretend

Well I'm sorry
If I haven't lived in a war zone
Well maybe my life isn't at risk from a bullet
But last I checked
life was littered with time bombs
And mine is tick, tick, ticking away
I can feel so much pressure on my brain
I'm getting so tired
Of fighting everyday
To chase bad thoughts away

You don't know what I'm thinking
You don't know what I'm feeling
So stop acting like you do
Stop saying things like
Your being silly now
Not all that bad now
Your just being overdramatic

I know what I'm thinking
I know what I'm feeling
And I'm telling you
This sadness is real
This anger is real
This overboard of emotions
I could not begin to pretend

Only I can know
Only I can understand
The weight of it all
I can try to tell you
I feel like I'm falling under
But you wouldn't comprehend how serious it is

You don't know what I'm thinking
You don't know what I'm feeling
So stop acting like you do
Stop saying things like
Your being silly now
Not all that bad now
Your just being overdramatic

I know what I'm thinking
I know what I'm feeling
And I'm telling you
This sadness is real
This anger is real
This overboard of emotions
I could not begin to pretend

Oh, think about it please
Why I would worry
Why would I cry day and night
Why would I panic
About my inner thought
If I wasn't certain
Something wasn't quite right
Oh, Just let me cry for help
I'm always shoving it aside
Always happy to let things lie
But not anymore
I've had enough of hiding seeds
Let me cry
Cry for help 

The End
