A Little Bit Of Me

Come over here!
Let me tell you a secret
You might not believe it
But, I'm not happy and I'm not strong
Everything you see is just a front
I hold the fragile pieces with an unsure grip
To make the world believe that I'm holding it in

The truth
I'm broken inside
Holding onto a hope I'll never find
Wearing a mask so no one knows I'm lying
Turned my tear ducts off, or maybe their as broken as I am
So no one ever sees me cry

I have to put up a front
To keep it all from falling
I lift my head and man up
I always grin and bear it
Pretend I'm strong on the outside
But I fear you see my feint
And know that everything I say
Is only ever for the sake
Of all the ones who still rely
On my courage to push the tide
And the lie that I'm alright

But, I'm not happy and I'm not strong
And I've been broken all along

Ever reach the point

Where carrying the world on your shoulders starts to break your back?
That day, I wanted to throw the world into the sea.
