When you feel the tears prick your eyes

Feel them flood your soul

And drown your mind

They make you sad

And make you find

That somewhere close

Inside your mind

There lives a person

Who's so hard to find

A person you know

That you've seen before

A person who is always

knocking on your door

You close your eyes

And cover your ears

You stifle my cries

And stop up my tears

No matter what you do

the flood shall follow you

Follow you to the brink

To the end of yourself

To you standing over the sink

To give me

The life I deserve

For all the years i've lived

Forced to hide under your skirt

Trapped inside you

A life of little worth

My body bruised by the waves

You would never free

The emotions you shunned

Just like you ignored me

But now I know

And now you've been forced to see

That though your life you've lived

You've always been me
