Well your looking at a picture
seems as peaceful as can be
But its a dot to dot, the lines
are all you can see
And the broken up dots are all thats left of me
And you'll never understand what it's like to be me.

You've led this perfect life
with evrything you need
And you've never had to deal with
just how evil folk can be, and
tho I'd never wish it on ya I wish you could somehow see
And so you'll never understand what it's like to be me.

Cos the pieces of me
are buried deep inside,
the hurts that never heal
I'm ashamed of and hide
And they're locked away where none will ever see
And so you'll never understand what it's like to be me.

Well I'm your bestest friend,
How could I not know?
I have seen the way
it still affects you so
And I know that the pain will never, never go
But despite all of that your heart continues to grow.

And I know that my life
has been perfect so far,
And I know that your Hell
has left you too many scars
But I know that your soul still reaches to the stars
And I can see you for just who you are

And I know you're a patchwork
and the stitches are gone
So let me lend you a needle and
thread to sew it back on because
I know that you're destined for a happier place
Cos you've had too much Hell so now you're owed a break.

So when you're ready to tell me I will listen to you
Because I do understand what it's like to be you.
