-On the Inside-

Poetry By: SilverSoldier
Song lyrics

This was written based on my depression, but not during. Thanks to a friend, this is also the first set of lyrics I've written that are on their way to actually becoming a real song, :D hope everyone likes it.

P.S. Anything in parenthesis is supposed to be sung in the background, so the chorus is sung behind verse 2

Verse 1

They all ask me if I'm ok

Lie and tell them I'm just fine

Only hear the words I say

(Pay no mind to the pain in my eyes)

I go through this everyday

Over and Over a thousand times

(No one ever sees the pain

No one ever sees behind the lies)


Fake a smile to show I'm alive

But no one knows what I'm feeling inside

Make them think that I'm alright

But no one knows I'm dying inside

Can anyone see what's really going on?

Can anyone see beyond these lies?

Can't you see, it's all so clear?

When you just look into my eyes

Verse 2 (Chorus)

There are so many things that are on my mind

Just can't find a reason to try

I've locked myself in this box of mine

No one can see the tears I cry

(So here I go again this time)

Hiding behind another lie

I wish I could just leave behind

All this pain I feel inside

Verse 3

I wonder if I'll ever show

If I'll ever let anybody knowHow I truly feel inside

(All these thoughts that are on my mind)

Sooner or later, these smiles will wear

There comes a time when everything must stop

But, until that day,

I'll keep on going the same way

Chorus x2
