Waking up every morning,
To the hurt of life.
Putting on my makeup and perfecting my hair,
Just so I can look like everyone else.

Sometimes I feel like showing emotions to the world,
But nothing happens.
I just can't let anything come out,
Not a single tear.
It's like I've become what I feared most,
A hard, unfeeling person.

At school I'm the prep.
I act like my life is so perfect,
I act so happy and upbeat.
The person that can make everyone feel great.

Sometimes I feel like showing emotions to the world,
But nothing happens.
I just can't let anything come out,
Not a single tear.
It's like I've become what I feared most,
A hard, unfeeling person.

At home I try to be the perfect daughter,
Do my homework, clean my room,
Listen to my parents and siblings.
The person that anyone can talk to.

Sometimes I feel like showing emotions to the world,
But nothing happens.
I just can't let anything come out,
Not a single tear.
It's like I've become what I feared most,
A hard, unfeeling person.

If anyone could escape into my body and mind,
They would realize:
I'm dying inside,
I'm lonely,
I'm in need of love.
I'm not perfect and
I'm unique.

Sometimes I feel like showing emotions to the world,
But nothing happens.
I just can't let anything come out,
Not a single tear.
It's like I've become what I feared most,
A hard, unfeeling person.

Pain is the dull, butter knife.
Slowly, deliberately stabbing into my heart,
Feeling the hurt, putting up a shield.
Making the pain last longer and longer,
Until it is who I am.

Sometimes I feel like showing emotions to the world,
But nothing happens.
I just can't let anything come out,
Not a single tear.
It's like I've become what I feared most,
A hard, unfeeling person.
