Although I smile and make the face that everyone can see,
Beneath the surface turmoil stirs, I wonder will I be
Held tightly in your arms again?
Such agony and discontent behind this thin veneer
It covers up the suffering and masks my awful fear
That we have strayed too far apart and love will not appear.
Will you come and comfort me?
At night I cry myself to sleep, I want you so, so bad
I want to have the life again that long ago we had,
The tear stains on my pillow grow, and I am always sad,
Will you come back to me again?
I want to find the courage to break out of my dark cage,
And free myself from pain and anguish, and let loose my rage,
I want to make you understand what put me on this page,
Will you empathize with me?
And so I lead an empty life, I’m trapped inside this shell,
For one knows the husk I am, locked in this private hell,
I don’t know if you’ll hear my plea and free me, make me well,
Will you save me? Will you heal me?
