Do not want to cry
But that is all a lie
Do not want to feel
Just want to escape all that's real

All I feel is shame
Living in this game
Letting things get to me
Eating away at me

Stronger now am I
From things that haven't made me die
Push your tears away
This is a price to pay

Hello, pain, my friend
Will this never end?
I just don't know why
People make me cry

Just leave me alone
Hidden in my home
Afraid of hurt being sent
Don't want to be the strong one again

Falling down again
I will never win
Another road has turned
Lessons will be learned

Because to survive, sometimes you have to give up who you are...
