Verse 1

You don't know why you do what you know,

Don't know why you act the way you like to.

You don't know why you still don't let me go.

You don't know the reasons, but I sure do.

Chorus

You're emotionally damaged,

Stuck inside a dreadful cage,

And crying out loud for help.

But see, I gotta look after myself.

I can't do this forever and so on.

Always dark, we never reach dawn.

Verse 2

You don't know why you're so mean to me.

Don't know why you hurt me again and again.

You can't see everything that you could be.

And I can't tell you that you're just insane.

Chorus

You're emotionally damaged,

Stuck inside a dreadful cage,

And crying out loud for help.

But see, I gotta look after myself.

I can't do this forever and so on.

Always dark, we never reach dawn.

You never open up your heart to me.

Just playing games, can't you see?

You've started to damage me too.

So I've gotta go now, I'll miss you.

Bridge

The reasons don't matter.

I know them in my heart but I'm

Scared my world would shatter

If I say them out loud, oh.

You've started to damage me, so

….I've gotta go.

Chorus

You're emotionally damaged,

Stuck inside a dreadful cage,

And crying out loud for help.

But see, I gotta look after myself.

I can't do this forever and so on.

Always dark, we never reach dawn.

You never open up your heart to me.

Just playing games, can't you see?

You've started to damage me too.

So I've gotta go now, I'll miss you.
