want to be more than a gravestone
I don't want to leave this world unknown
I want to be recognized
Not criticized
I want to mean more to people than my lies
I'm finding it hard to find a reason to try
I'm fighting back tears
They've been coming for years
I wish I could disappear
I wish you'd remember that I was still here
I wish I could think straight my thoughts are confused
I feel so left out, I feel so used
I wish someone else could walk a day in my shoes
Most of all I wish I could just have you

The hole it is gaping
There is no escaping
This mess I made
My body is shaking
There is no mistaking
My pain for anything but weakness

Why does my chest hurt?
My hearts pounding through my shirt
I've lost everything I've ever known
I take another step in this world alone
The words can't even begin to tell
Every breath is a mile through hell
There's no air, I'm suffocating
I don't know how long I'll survive through the waiting
I need someone, someone to hold
Every minute I sit here, out in the cold
Is an eternity wasted, I could be with you
But you're gone now and there's nothing I can do

The hole it is gaping
There is no escaping
The mess I made
My body is shaking
There is no mistaking
My pain for anything but weakness
