Stay Appart

Stay Apart
 
Nope nothing is wrong
 
 
That’s what I say....
 
 
Pretending I am strong....
 
 
When inside I really want to runaway....
 
 
Hiding become so exhausting....
 
 
The smile fades as soon as I am alone....
 
 
So many tears on my pillow resting....
 
 
Wondering how I got here on my own....
 
 
Looking for away out of the darkness....
 
 
Apart of me knowing I deserve better....
 
 
Fear makes me settle for less....
 
 
And always thinking about another....
 
 
It seems no matter where I go or what I do....
 
 
He will always be in my heart....
 
 
My shell he’s been able to see through....
 
 
Both of us still afraid so we stay apart....
