in the dark,
here she stands alone in her thoughts.
the life that's passing right by her.
she's always feeling,
like giving up and holding on her tongue.
feel the words burn up
inside her mouth like poison.
can't you see it in her eyes?
her story deep beneath,
but you don't realize -
the weight on her shoulders sinking in.
crying out for a hand
no one seems to understand,
what it's like to want someone to hold (her tight) .
lost in the dreams
that keep her safe from reality.
can she find what's hiding ...
