Another silent night passes by,

And still I am alone.

Another sleepless, restless night,

And still you're ignorent.

As I look in the mirror,

I start to wonder who I am.

Do I really mean something to you,

Or am I just something in your way?

The air just keeps getting colder,

And the pain in my heart keeps getting sharper.

Stilll, you are unaware of it all.

You think you know what's really happening,

But in truth, you know nothing.

The look in your eyes betrays you,

As it confirms your words are lies.

You try to deceive me,

And tell me it's all my fault.

But I know better than to listen to what you say.

The icy chill your words give me,

Continues to distract me,

From what is really important.

You're taking away what I need to survive.

You're taking away what has kept me alive this long.

If you take away my love, and my only trust,

Than the outcome will be the darkest yet.

Do not deny me my salvation,

Unless you wish to see me leave this world.

You tell me that you still care,

But I know that someone else,

Has taken my place in your heart.

If you really loved me like you say you do,

Than you would be here beside me,

Not tearing me down and pushing me away.

Just try to give me a chace,

To prove that I'm not the failure you think I am.

That I'm not worthless.

Maybe then I can ammount to something,

And be what you've always wanted me to be.

All I've ever wanted was to make you proud of me,

And for you to just love and accept me,

The way that I am.

But now I realize that will never happen.

Because I have failed you.

But believe me when I say,

That you have failed me too.

You've been with me through all these years,

But I've been alone all along.

You were never really there,

Even though you thought you were.

So now I fake a smile,

Just to please you.

I don't let my sadness and hurt show,

Because I don't want to disapoint you.

You say you love me,

But now I'm starting to wonder...

Is it really me you love,

Or what I predend to be?
