Seeing You Break


Swirls of trouble in your eyes

Failing everything you try

It doesn't seem to be worth it at all

But the way your face dies at each failiure

It breaks my heart to see you fall


Keeping it together

Without faith that it's gonna get better


I see you break

I know you fake your smiles through your perfect teeth

I'm curious

Why are you furious today?


I sit here, helpless, seeing you break


Can't control this rampant change

Reaching for something out of your range

Perfection dwells far, far from here

But the vulnerability in your stare

I can see past all your fear


You want life to be

So planned out so everything can be seen


I see you fall

Nothing at all can make you happy now

You're always hurt

Why are you curt with me today?


I sit here, helpless, seeing you break


I watch the victim rise and fall

With each laugh, with each call

I hear the desperation in your voice

I've seen you when you drift to sleep

The way you toss and turn so violently

Are you listening to me?


I see you break

I see you fall

I see your fear

I see it all


I see you break

I know you fake your smiles through your perfect teeth

I'm curious

Why are you furious today?


Seeing you break


I see the laughs

I see the acts of happiness you play so well

But you can't fool me

Why are you dueling with yourself today?

I'm seeing you break
