We were so close not long ago
It was a time I knew your heart
You felt so hurt, I tried to comfort
But nothing that I said
Seemed to get through
Nothing seemed to...

I tried, I swear I did my best
To get those problems off your chest
But I feel useless, I didn't help
Right now, I cannot even tell
Why you're feeling all this hate
You target it upon yourself
The tension inside you create

I'd helped you many times before
You know for you I would die for
You're so confused, you say you used
The friends you have
To make it through
But still, you don't do...

I tried, I swear I did my best
To get those problems off your chest
But I feel useless, I didn't help
Right now, I cannot even tell
Why you're feeling all this hate
You target it upon yourself
The tension inside you create

So everything I say reflects
Off your soul to another path
Absorbed the pain, I'm really trying
To help you make it
Make it through
About yourself, it isn't true...

You could blame yourself each day
Pretend like you can stand the pain
But even those you never frown
Eventually are prone to drown
In sorrows deep and sorrows near
You never can escape the fear
Why can't I make you look and see
That your own pain is killing me

All the dreams, all the love
All the hate, all above
But every time you curse yourself
I feel a part of me shatter

Nothing seemed to...
But it still left me shattered
