It's what you don't let out

That's what they want to know

It's when the hurt inside

Just isn't meant to show

That's when you try to speak

But the words are all meaningless

And as the night descends

It's like the pain never ends


It's all the things you hide

It's all the time you fill

It's when you wait alone

Or slowly climb the hill

Just when you reach the top

And you look out across the sky

You silently watch the sun

And hope for anyone


It's when the things you want

Are always beyond your reach

But still you try and try

And don't notice the world pass you by
