I look into your eyes and see
The hurt that you try to hide
You put on a show, Like you don't care
But it's there, I should know
'Cause it's the same hurt I share
To be left finding out
You can't depend on anyone but yourself
And always filling your mind with doubt
The world, it's a cruel place
Finding it out the hard way
And we have no choice but to stand tall
And stare it in the face, try not to fall
And we tell ourselves "It'll be okay"
Pushing all those thoughts away
But knowing they will be back another day.
Dedicated to my brothers and sister "1997"
