the secrets hidden that you don't know
won't stop eating away at me...

i smile pretty for the camera
glasses covering crying eyes,
with my peace sign formed by hands

apologizing oh, so much
for things that you can't see...
guilty inside for my little mistakes...

you defend me way too much
tell me to stop taking so much blame,
can't you see how bad i truly am?

my eyes bore right through you,
my skin's wrinkles should tell the truth,
you should see my secrets kept behind these chapped lips

you can't love someone like me,
you shouldn't, you can't and you won't
not when my verdict has been shown...

i need to help those that hurt me,
i need to be "too" nice
to make up for all the guilt i hide...

scratch the surface, look deep inside
what do you truly find?
i am really the girl that made you fall?

the secrets hidden that you don't know
won't stop eating away at me...
