People think I have it all
........................................................But they're wrong
I have a mom and a dad
........................................................But I'm missing self-respect
I'll choke down food
........................................................But that is all I'll say
Now and then I'll weigh myself
........................................................If I feel the need
But my secret isn't bulimia
........................................................My secret makes me bleed
My secret will leave me scars
........................................................That will last me my whole life
And everything just depends
........................................................On a silver little knife
People look and they see:
........................................................A happy girl
That is not me
........................................................No one knows what I hide
In the darkness is where it lies
........................................................With these secrets
That bring me tears
........................................................All I want is someone near
Maybe if I were pretty
........................................................Better looking, with the grades
I'd have someone
........................................................And not a blade

Goodbye,
...
Amber
