My rice paper heart

Can tear so easily

My outer golden heart

Is what I want my core to be

But even gold can melt and reveal

The weak girl that I am…


So could I help it if you were the girl that I used to be?

Could I help it if I want to see you in the mirror?

Could I help it if I just can't speak?

Well, I can't; I can't help it

Please help me


My half-hearted trust

Can't always hold so strong

My true hidden feelings

Can't be held back so long

So I strand myself in the darkness

And seal my lips with a sob…


So could I help it if you stole my heart away?

Could I help it if my broken heart clings to you?

Could I help it if you are beautiful in every way?

No, I can't; I can't help it

Don't help me


I hide my scarred fingers

As a blood drop starts to bloom

Though it was long ago, I see me as a monster

Sometimes I wish that you would too…


Could I help it if you gave me hope to get back up again?

Could I help it if I felt like I had a chance?

Could I help it if you made me feel like there's hope for me yet?

Well, I can't; so I try again

I can't give up just yet…
