ironic chains

verse:

you do this to protect me but it hurts,

the sky falls right on in.

holds me down, pulls me to a place

where there are only tears.

pain -- all i know, all i see,

i walk on broken glass.

~

chorus:

i hope you realize I don't hate you,

but it's hard to cry alone.

stand back, watch all I believe in

float away.

chains bind my broken soul to you.

~

bridge:

i know what it's like to cover your real self.

it's my life, my everyday,

every second i'm awake.

i can never tell the difference

between my fake and real smiles

~

 verse:

watch me cry, watch me hopelessly hope.

can you see me stumble?

i'm left alone, in my disguise,

the way i want it to be.

i don't care, don't really want your life

please, leave me where i am.

~

chorus:

i know you realize i don't hate you,

but it's hard to cry alone.

stand back, watch all i believe in

float away.

chains bind my broken soul to you.

~

end:

i know i'm lost

i know i'm bound

by these ironic chains.

i know i'm found

i know i'm left

with these ironic chains.

just leave me where i am

The End
