 I want someone to hold me,
 But I'm the only one here.
 I want someone to listen to me,
 But I'm the only ear.

 Can anybody hear me?
 Does anybody care?
 Does anybody even know
 I'm dealing with despair?

 There are voices in my mind
 Saying I should die.
 Will anybody even tell me
 They're only just a lie?

 Does anybody love me?
 Would they shed a tear?
 Would anybody even care
 If I were to disappear?

 The ones who preach friendship
 Have left me all alone.
 The ones who are not here
 Promised not to let me go.

 Can anybody see me?
 Does anybody care?
 Does anybody even know
 The burden that I bear?

 I've built up this wall
 To hide who I am,
 And now that I need help,
 I'm alone behind it all.

 Can you see the real me?
 Will you even try?
 Can you even tell I need
 A break in the wall tonight?

 I'm crying all alone,
 Not sure what to do.
 Please just let me know
 That at least I still have you.
