You cut me with your harsh words,
You stab me with your eyes.
I want so bad to be myself,
But you make me want to cry...
You try so hard to make me smile,
But you only tear me down.
You put me on your pedastal,
For me to throw away the crown.
You protect me from this harsh world,
You walk me through my fears;
Then you strand me by the deep end,
And leave me there for years.
I will swim to shore myself this time,
I will find my own way in the dark.
Your words wont keep me down anymore,
You will leave no more permanent marks.
