On This Stage

I lost myself in someone else's happiness Forgot to pick myself up I cried myself to sleep only seeking lust I helped with everyone else's future Forgot about myself Leaving several wounded hearts Sat upon the shelf Hoping one-day the heartache will go I can remove this heavy stone Blocking the sunlight from my back Wishing for a happy home Wishes don't come true When you have lost yourself to greed Knowing one-day I'll be left to you Waiting for an open scene As the stage is my own world now I can make my happiness up Love is no longer here All that's left is dust
