All I've Got


i used to feel the stress of life heavy on my head,
now i just feel sad and cold, like im slowly growing dead.

i'd run back to the stress of life if i could lesve my sadness here,
the increasing pain of all of this i really start to fear.

i have always been the strong one on which my family could all lean,
no matter how or what i say they still don't know what i mean.

i thought that all the stress was bad but truthfully its not.
i would do anything to have it back for this sadness is all i've got.
