Other Side Of Me

The tears that won’t subside

The hate that fills my eyes

The fear inside of me

I can’t get away this poison won’t leave

As I try to get up and run

My legs start to turn numb

And I then crash into the earth

My dreams are broken I don’t have any worth

I again try to get away

But the pain just follows me day after day

And inside I feel alone

And the pain ignites inside my bones

I’m all alone in this crowded world

I got nothing and I feel like I’ve died

Well that’s the way I feel inside

But all you see is my happy smiles

All you see is hope and joy

They were never there

I’m faking it, boy

So if you think you can judge me

You should first get to know me

And maybe then you’ll see

The other side of me
