They might think that I am strange
Why should I try to change?
Are you afraid 'cause I'm unknown
That I prefer to be alone
/ I try to talk out loud sometimes
Makes no sense, even if it rhymes
The right words are hard to find
So I can never speak my mind
These thoughts are hard to phrase
They haunt me every single day
/ This wasn't meant to be a sad song
But how else can I describe
What I've been like all along
The feelings locked up inside
/ So here it is now, can you see into my soul
It's complicated, naturally
I am so tired, I just want to lose control
How can I explain these parts of me
That you will never know?
/ Lying awake every night
Thinking of what's wrong
Hate to be in the spotlight
To be noticed for too long
/ Can you tell me what is right?
I don't seem to fit the mould
I guess I'll let you decide
I need some clarity to hold
I may be all alone
But I'm not the only one
/ People like me are not the same
How easily we forget
A person, faces and their names
Do we deserve all that we get?
/ I don't see how I will ever know what's real
Without a sense of passing time
Do I even have a soul for them to steal?
How can I explain this heart of mine
The emotions that I feel?
/ There's no need for you to cry today
There's no-one like you to be found
Butterfly you should fly away
'Cause they don't want you around
Heartbeats are numbered, so they say
Can you hear the constant sound?
/ Fragile and vibrant is how we'll always be
Stars veiled by darkness, but still remaining free
There's someone out there somewhere, somebody just like me
And we'll try to live forever, hoping someday that they'll see
/ Out of the corner, silently I'll go
No matter what, my tears will never show
Because they will never know
