When I was just a little girl,

you'd keep me safe from the world,

and all its secrets.

Back then we were best friends,

but then, he came along, and took my place.

You try to hide it, but it shows;

he's you favorite now.

And I'm no more than something in the way.

'Cause I'm a failure in your eyes.

You have ignored all of my cries.

I have done my very best,

but I guess...

my best just isn't good enough,

to make you proud of me.

You promised you'd be there when I needed you,

but you broke that promise long ago.

I'm going through the hardest part of my life right now,

but you wouldn't help me.

You say you care about me,

but you've never been there for me.

You don't know how I feel,

and don't want to get to know me.

'Cause I'm a failure in your eyes.

You have ignored all of my cries.

I have done my very best, but I guess,

my best just isn't good enough,

to make you proud of me.

You don't know that I'm in love.

You don't know all that I've lost. 

You don't know anything about me anymore.

You never did see,

that I've always looked up to you, and tried to make you proud.

But someone has taken my place.

And though I've tried, I've always disappointed you.

'Cause I'm a failure in your eyes.

You have ignored all of my cries.

I have done my very best, but I guess,

my best just isn't good enough,

to make you proud of me.

We used to be best friends,

and I used to mean the world to you.

But not anymore, it's different now.

And when I cry, I cry knowing that you don't care.

I'm trying so hard, to wake from the dream;

wake to find you holding me tight,

telling me everything will be alright.

Life was so much better when I was young,

because I knew you loved me then.

But now....

I'm a failure in your eyes.

You have ignored all of my cries.

I have done my very best, but I guess,

my best just isn't good enough,

to make you proud of me.

I give up, you win.

I surender.

I'm dying...my heart is dying, but you don't care.

Because I am a failure in your eyes.
