my eyes burn with the tears
i've spent so many years
trying to do what you're doing now
once again, you've taken my place
why do i try?
you do much better than i

alas, my confidence is broken
my self esteem is down
when you think you've hit rock bottom
you fall farther down

the tears spill down my cheeks
i don't want to be forgotten
replaced by you
i don't want to feel this way
i want to be brand new

the choice is out of my hands
in front of me, you stand

my confidence is broken
my self esteem is down
just when i think i've hit rock bottom
i fall farther down

what a beautiful release
these tears that flow down my cheeks
but no one notices me
i've been replaced
