* This was written for someone dear to me. *

... so much in my head...
is it even worth it
to get out of bed?
Really not sure, can I face the day
But life goes on...
life goes on.
I'll find a way.
I can't explain exactly why it is I feel so blue
but I would bet some money, it still has to do with you!
People go through harder things, and this I understand -
but my world's been turned upside down completely by a man.
I've been through this before
should have recognized it when
the problem started knocking at my door.
I hate this feeling... hate what you have done to us.
And you don't even care;
No, you don't even care.
Destroyed my security
and made me doubt our unity -
true love is such a rarity.
And so it's left to me
patch the pieces of this life
Make believe I feel no pain...
and go on as your wife.
But... my heart still feels fractured
betrayed and torn
And in my dreams I will be
