For Far Too Long

I'm coming back to the world

I guess I haven't been doing fine

But I'll still smile and lie

And say everything's alright

I know that I'll always make it through

No matter how much I have to fight

I really wish that I could soar

But I can barely crawl

What are all these heartaches for

Standing on a fine line to the edge of of free fall

Yet somehow I'm convinced

That if I lose myself I can have it all

I don't want your sympathy

All I want to feel is apathy

To be indifferent to the dream of your kiss

To finally lose myself in a world of bliss

That is a world that I truly miss

For far too long I've felt this pain

For far too long I've loved in vain

I'm forcing myself to let you go

I'll be brittle as ice and cold as snow

But at least you'll be happy

And I'll be free
