Waking up

To a cold reality

Where my dreams and wishes flee.

I yawn and stretch

I open my eyes

I'm faced with this big surprise.

Getting through the day

Crying through the night

Will anything EVER be alright?

I wrap myself in a blanket

Stand behind a wall

So no one can hurt me at all.

I'm creeping through the twilight

I'm running toward the dawn

But it doesn't matter because I'll still be gone.

Once the sun has risen

And the moon has disappeared

The day cuts through me like a pair of sharpened shears

I try and hide my voice,

Cover up my fears

But no matter how hard I try, you will still see my tears.
