Erase Myself

Why am I the only one
Who can hear me?
Why do I have to cry
Only to the mirror,
The only one who can truly see my tears?

Why am I so alone
When I'm with you?
Why is it that I sit there,
Staring into oblivion,
Reaching, wishing, hoping
While you are deaf to my cries,
And blind to my piercing tears?

I search deep into my stormy eyes,
I've never seen such hurt before,
Raw, clinging, longing, needing
Hurt

Why is it that I feel so worthless,
So empty?
I know that I'm a giver
But I give myself away
And you never gave me back
What I asked for...
And I only asked for you
To take.

Why do I find myself wondering
If maybe I should just erase myself
Against the deep blue of the sky
So I won't block the sun for you
Anymore?

Why do I fall to my knees inside
While standing tall on the outside?
Why am I so overwhelmed,
So dizzy with this fear
Of being alone...
When I've been alone all along?

And maybe I should just erase myself
Against the blackness of your road
So I won't mislead you home
Anymore

And I look in your eyes and beg you
To ask me for anything
And I look in your eyes and beg you
To make me feel like I'm worth something
Like at least I've brought you a little bit of
Light...
And I look in your eyes
And I see that you are asking
For me to erase myself
Against the scarlet blood of dusk
So you can watch your sun go down
Without my glimmer of hope
Getting in the way of the dark.
