Surrounded by friends, but I feel so alone, 

Why doesn't this empty heart, ever feel like a home?

I never feel I'm good enough, never up to par,

And no matter how hard I try, I never meet the bar.

You call on me, I'm always there, you'll always have my love,

But still I feel, you deserve a friend, who's an extra cut above.

I sit here and listen, feel your pain, wishing I could be, 

The amazingly awesome person, that you all claim to see.

I feel so inadequate, trying hard to be my best,

Try to control my insecurities, put them all to rest.

Yet they still come up and pull me under once more,

I guess it doesn't really help, that I open up the door.

In my deepest of hearts, my unheard longings, I hope I'm what you need,

Cause it is my forever hurt, just seeing your heart bleed.
