You Will Not See Me pt. I
...They're screaming at me...
They called me coward.
But they never truly knew.
What I did feel inside...
...'Lonely is not a feeling when you are alone.
Lonely is a feeling when no one cares.'...
I always used to mask myself with a smile.
Everyone assumed happiness, but you all never knew.
When you found me, we stood together.
But I knew better...
...'It's hard to answer the question 'What's wrong? ' when
When you found my scars.
You were heartbroken.
I would have apologized... but we both knew...
Time and time again, the scars kept...
...'I get lost inside me mind.'...
You begged me to stop.
I swear I couldn't.
But I knew I should have heeded...
...'I'm often silent when I'm screaming inside.'...
You could take no more.
But I was too far to listen...
When I last saw you... rivers of tears.
But now you swing...
