At the corner there you are,
Alone with a fake smile i know it is,
Drawn fiercely on these sweet cheeks of yours,
Your face is no longer bright,
Your eyes has too much inside,
You think we fools don't recognize,
The mountains you built around you,
The distance you took,
and the shape you put yourself into,
I can't bring you out of there,
You buried yourself too deep,
I can no longer reach you,
I feel like I'm losing you,
And Every time I try to drag you out,
You intentionally push yourself deeper,
I'm your friend,closest friend,
Do you doubt that ?
I'm here, always will and be,
Do you doubt that?
I love you,no matter what.
Do you doubt that ?
Catch you when you fall,
Behind you when you fight,
Hug you when you break down,
Do you still doubt that ?
Is it grief holding you away from life,
Was it better when he was around,
Is it now, bitter when he left,
Now, Can you still taste life ?
I don't feel you anymore,
Your pain ain't going away,
It's only taking you apart,
I know how much pain,
is growing there inside,
You spoke none,
You've been silent the whole time,
Are you too damaged to speak?
I'm not buying any of what you say
I know how much you need to scream and cry,
I know this hard surface would eventually break,
I know that fake smile will go to waste,
I know that broken heart of yours will burn,
And,I will be there,there for all,
Because I want to be the one holding you back,
Back from falling,
