each word is like a bullet

burning holes into my flesh

each step you take away from me

just makes me stare harder

i wish i could burn holes into your brain

or etch the words i want to say

you wouldn't hear them any other way

i wish i could be the one to do the walking

i run away so you won't see me cry

behind a wall i built myself

my self-control hangs by a thread

but i'd die before you saw my tears again
