If only I could put down this pen
If only to stop these thoughts that spin

It gets to be so overbearing
That I constantly have to modify the mask I'm wearing

From happy 
To bored
And over again
Never let anybody see what's real within

If they knew..
What could they do?

They've all tried before
But nothing helps anymore

I'm broken, scarred
Warped and marred

Something I am unable to fix
Will haunt me every night, just after six
Lasting almost the whole night through
If only I could reach out to someone like you

You scream at me
Trust me, I agree!
As painful as it is to hear
I know that I'm beginning to disappear

One day I might just fade from sight
Till you can only glimpse me at night 

I know how that sounds, and it must be hard
To hear what I say
To think of me in a grave yard

But love, don't you fret
I will never forget

All that you've done
But my demons have won

Sticking so close
You can't save me now
It's like an overdose
They've taken over my body somehow

I wish I could see
What you do in me
So maybe I could be
A little more carefree

But the fear that lingers beneath the rage of the bear
It has grown to be part of that cold, bold stare

I don't know how else to say
That I will always be this way 
Fear not, my love, for I will always be
That lone butterfly that lingers in your memory
So remember me if you can, 
For who I used to be
