Have you ever wished

that you could scream out loud?

But all that comes out

is a chortling whisper.

You close your eyes and slowly breathe

a low heavy sigh of defeat.

Holding on has never been harder.

-

Where's my dream made reality?

Where's my fantasy?

So laugh in my face

I'll try not to show emotion

but when you turn your back

I'll show the real me.

Where's my perfect reality?

Instead it's just filled with lies.

-

Have you ever wished

that you could just change your world?

But all that surrounds you

is just another disappointment.

You'll turn your cheek and settle in the corner

frustrating regret, one after another

when's it going to stop?

-

Where's my dream made reality?

Where's my fantasy?

So laugh in my face

I'll try not to show emotion

but when you turn your back

I'll show the real me.

Where's my perfect reality?

Instead it's just filled with lies.

-

All you want to feel

is the comforting hand on your shoulder

and the fingers wiping away the tears.

But all you want to do

is cry until your eyes run dry.

-

Where's my dream made reality?

Where's my fantasy?

So laugh in my face

I'll try not to show emotion

but when you turn your back

I'll show the real me.

Where's my perfect reality?

Instead it's just filled with lies.
