I wish you could understand

Sometimes, I need an extra hand

I'm not the strong girl you think i am

I'm not that solid and unbreakable gem

 

In fact,

I easily break

On the inside out

And more time it takes

To assemble the pieces missing out

 

I wish you could know

How many times I've struggled to let go

Of thoughts and tries

Trying to let myself die

 

Countless summers, turned into years

I've been haunted by my thoughts and my fears

Don't tell me to learn how to be on my own

If you don't understand my struggle of being just one

 

Not one, several tears

I've been pouring on account of my fears

And angels and demons

Who've reshaped me into something as bitter as lemons

 

And I've been wanting to cry more

Because I've been knocking down walls before

And suddenly I feel more appearing

To stop your words from hurting
