Happy Father's Day

Happy father's day, dad.
Oh, my bad. 
You were never my dad.

You were supposed to protect me,
You were supposed to be there, 
You were supposed to be my dad.

Sixteen year's, your still not here. 
Sorry for being a burden upon your life,
But I will not sit in despair. 

Aren't you happy now, dad?
I'm broken now, dad.

What's fathers day to you? 
You were never a dad. 
Now you sit in pleasure,
 without your own flesh.

Aren't you happy now, dad?
You were never my dad,
But enjoy your father's day.

You were my everything

At first, it was just a moonlight walk, 
At first, it was just small talk, 
At first, it was just a dream, 
At first, it was all I could see.

Moving along, my dream became reality,
Moving along, you were everything my mind could see, 
Moving along, you were my everything,

Now, I am one speck of dirt to your reality,
Now, You will never see the real me, 

At last, all we had disappeared.

Why

Why do you make me go to sleep? 
Why do you make it hard to breathe? Why can't I be free? From everything that's killing me. 

I'm insane, but only for you. 
I'm in pain,
Cause loving you it like wanting to be famous; 
It will never work out. 

Why do you judge me?
Why can't you see me? 
Why can't I be numb?
From everything that is killing me. 

I'm insane, but only for you
I'm in pain,
Cause loving you is like wanting to be famous; 
It will never work out.

Why can't you love me? 
Why can't you set me free?
Why can't I be immune? 
From everything that is killing me.

Ooooo. .

I'm insane, but only for you 
I'm in pain,
Cause loving you is like wanting to be famous; 
It will never work out
(Never, never) 
It will never work out. 

So I'm going to detach.

Dark walls

Alone,
the dark weeps inside,
the storms surface wide, 
breaking down my walls,
feeling ready to fall.

"Are you okay?"
"Yeah, I'm fine"
Never once have I felt okay,
but it's easier to say,
deep within these walls of hate,
inside one girl that once had faith.

Written in these walls,
burried deep inside,
here lies all the small stories, 
burning deep until finally they are engraved.

"Are you okay?
"Yeah I'm fine"
Never once have I felt okay,
but it's easier to say,
deep inside these walls of hate,
inside a girl that once had faith.

I know the devil is inside,
but I can't get away,
underneath her fate,
the scars get deeper with the day.

"Are you okay?
"Yeah I'm fine"
Never once have I felt okay,
but it's easier to say,
deep inside these walls of hate,
inside a girl that once had faith.

Broken in between all the violence,
Stuggling to survive everyday,
I don't know what I have become to this day,
but I know some changes need to be made.

"Are you okay?
"Yeah I'm fine"
Never once have I felt okay,
but it's easier to say,
deep inside these walls of hate,
inside a girl that once had faith.

The little girl you knew still begins to fade, 
that is the world we live in today,
please don't let yourself fade away,
I am always here if you need a break,
but please don't give your soul away.

Soaring

You can give up,
You can fall,
You can rest your case,
And maybe never exist at all.

"Use your wings and fly"
A wise butterfly once told me,
"Never fall behind the shattered glass"
My mind would strain to me.

But Why?
Why would you give up when you know you have ways to succeed?
Why would you give up when all it takes is a few extra steps to be who you want to be?
Why would you want to end it all when indeed you can be somebody? 
Why would you want to fail all the people that hold you dearly? 

This rollercoaster isn't gonna ride itself,
I may have ups and downs, 
But that's the fun part, 
You see,
When you go up a rollercoaster you get this excited gut feeling,
As you travel down hill,
Some can say you are thrilled.

Now tell me this,
Would you rather drown or fly in the sky?
Would you rather be noticed or fade away and die?
Would you rather change the world or let it waste away?
Or maybe even save one person's life or thousands a day?

In life there is so much to live for,
Take a look back and see all of the mountains, 
Or maybe even a sunset,
Look at the birds that tweet us a melody, 
Maybe even the frogs that croak when it's gloomy, 
The sun that peaks up and brights up the sky,
Now tell me do you really want to fall into the dull shadow of nothing?
Or are you ready to soar into the land of the luminous? 

I've chose my pick, 
Now it's time to choose yours, 
Maybe you will make the right choice,
And win some ambition.
