getting yelled at
taking the blame
i guess i do most everything
everything thats gone wrong
everything thats been sad
i guess its all my fault
that you are always upset and mad
they wonder why im secluded
they wonder why im alone
they wonder while i wander
the dark shadows of my home
i dont want to be yelled at
i dont want to take the blame
i dont want to hang my head to cry
only to be yelled at and put to shame
at times im really forgetful
but that may be because i dont want to rememeber
all the fury theyve thrown at me
has been hot fire embers
burning my soul then scarring me deep
at times i wish i could wake up from this deep sleep
through this hellish nightmare i cry most nights
listening to your words as they start the fights
one ray of hope has shown, but i know its going away fast
i just need someone to hold me and to make all this effort last
because even though im weird at times,
i have feelings too,
i think all i really need is just a friend,someone to listen, someone like you
