This Isn't Me

This isn’t me

Keeping the pain inside

Hiding every tear I cry

Always secretly wondering why

But never asking aloud


This isn’t me

Fading into black

Never wanting to turn back

Faking every smile I lack

Blending into the crowd


This isn’t me

Living purely in fear

Never letting you too near

Trying to prevent more tears

Forcing you away


This isn’t me

Tearing us apart

Always fighting from the start

Though somewhere deep in my heart

I’m begging you to stay

This isn’t me
