Hide Away

What exactly has happened to you in these last few years? Did you get tired of crying pointless tears? Was it that you got tired of giving your all? Or maybe you’re just too tired to keep standing tall Let me tell you, I’m sorry for what you’ve been put through And for how much I’ve continued to disappoint you But I can only be who I know to be To be and do the things that set me free You pride yourself on how well you do, how much money you make Why all the sudden do I feel like you’re a fake? You’ve changed, and certainly not for the better Remember what you told me? Ahead, there is always better weather Maybe I have gone against the ways you raised me Do you think you pushed too hard so I could be who you wanted me to be? I’m tired too, or do you even care anymore? It’s looking to be about that time, I have to go out on my own to explore It’s just too bad, because I thought I’d always have you by my side But since all you do is complain, all I know to do is hide
