Darkness in me

Close your eyes and open your mind to see, 

Why you’re not where you’re meant to be. 

Is it cause I am too fucked up? 
Is it cause my mind is corrupt? 

Will I ever feel normal again? 

It’s a bad day here comes the sin. 

Trying to refrain from what brings out the darkness in me, 

Here it comes again, who is she? 

The broken person I thought I left behind, 

The lost girl with too much on her mind. 

Will the day come that I will be okay? 

It’s okay you don’t have to stay. 

I’ll have my own back like I’ve always had, 

Will I see happiness before I go mad?
