I struggled to hold on

To myself though those

Slave struck years

I struggled to let no one know

That it was my self I feared

I struggled not to let

Anybody see me cry

But now that I'm so far away

And it's behind me,

Black mascara streaks

Down pale ghostly cheeks

Let me know when you can go

Cause I always cry alone

Each and every time I cried

I tried to keep inside

I locked my door

And hid my face,

And I always cry alone

So when

Black mascara streaks

Down pale ghostly cheeks

Let me know when you can go

Cause I always cry alone

You may feel like

You want to help me

But I don't need your pity

Or your lies,

I just need to be alone,

Especially when

Black mascara streaks

Down pale ghostly cheeks

Let me know when you can go

Cause I always cry alone

Cause I always cry alone.
