Keep it all Inside
I can't face this alone, or I'll drown in my tears.
It's a feeling I've felt for so many years.
I know I've told you the feeling went away,
But the pain is still raw, until this very day.
I can see the pain you store in your heart.
You try to hide it, but I've known from the start.
You hurt, you cry. And your life: you wish to end.
For reasons that I cannot comprehend.
I feel despair, regret, and numb beyond belief.
All I want to do is breakdown, and have a little relief.
Relief from the screaming in my head, the remorseful, horrible dreams.
My mask hides the real me, nothing's as good as it seems.
I try to get you to open up, try to help you out.
Be true to your heart, please get rid of your pout.
It kills me to see you smile without it reaching your eyes,
Because I know that deep inside, you want someone to hear your cries.
