Walked on and used
again and again, over and over
Would you like to try walking in my shoes?
I think not, but you always come to me
when there's no one to turn to, no one left to drain
I am the fallback, plan B
 
Damaged and hurt
once, twice, thrice, forever and ever
Would you like to be treated like dirt?
I think not, but you always come to me
when there's no one around, no one to cry to
I am the fallback, plan B
 
Betrayed by my friends
once, and always, for the longest eternity
Would you like to be just a trend?
I think not, but you always beg for me
to help you when I know that you wouldn't do the same
I am the fallback, don't you see?
 
I have cried more this once than I have in all my previous years
But I wouldn't let you see that
I have to be strong, for you and everyone else
For- who else would put you back together when you are in tears?
I am the fallback
But I am too weak to tell you of these feelings
