Verse 1

You're like a kite that dances even in the dangerous winds,

A powerful ship that sails against storms and never sinks-

Life never manages to drag you down to the level of your shadow,

You're always happy; you're the most cheerful person I know.

Verse 2

Meanwhile, I have been holding together a house of cards.

I have to stop everything around me from falling apart.

I've ignored the burden of my own pain and softened their blow.

I'm always responsible; I'm the strongest fighter that I know.

Chorus

See, I'm a simple person, with a simple mind.

But life decided I should have a complicated life.

And I'm tired of being let down every time by my fate.

I'm tired of being torn apart because of their secret.

Even though it doesn't affect me directly, it's made me the way I am.

I wanted to let you sail through it all, but I was afraid I'd flood a dam.

And now that we're over I've learnt something the hard way-

I'm not defined just by the dark patch on my blood, I need to realize it today.

Verse 3

Don't know why I judge myself by what someone else did.

Hiding it from you was making it hard for me to breathe.

But it's not my story to tell, it's a secret you keep locked in vault.

And I was afraid if I told you, sure enough you would bolt.

Verse 4

When I look at it now, what we had was the best I ever knew.

But it was built on lies and secrets, and I couldn't do that to you.

I wanted you to love me, because if you didn't, I knew you'd leave

When I told you about the dark patch I carry on my sleeves.

Chorus

See, I'm a simple person, with a simple mind.

But life decided I should have a complicated life.

And I'm tired of being let down every time by my fate.

I'm tired of being torn apart because of their secret.

Even though it doesn't affect me directly, it's made me the way I am.

I wanted to let you sail through it all, but I was afraid I'd flood a dam.

And now that we're over I've learnt something the hard way-

I'm not defined just by the dark patch on my blood, I need to realize it today.

Bridge

You're a treasure, I don't have the talents to be worthy of you,

But I'll earn it.

I've never known how to breathe under the load of my baggage,

But I'll learn it.

Some things you learn,

Some things you choose,

And I've excelled in that,

So sometimes I'm confused

Why I judge myself by what someone else did.

Hiding it from you was making it hard for me to breathe.

Chorus

See, I'm a simple person, with a simple mind.

But life decided I should have a complicated life.

And I'm tired of being let down every time by my fate.

I'm tired of being torn apart because of their secret.

Even though it doesn't affect me directly, it's made me the way I am.

I wanted to let you sail through it all, but I was afraid I'd flood a dam.

And now that we're over I've learnt something the hard way-

I'm not defined just by the dark patch on my blood, I need to realize it today.
