i don't know what i should do now
i've exhausted all the know how
all of my efforts they fail me
leaving me broken and empty
i can't go on
half living this life on my own
cuz i'm hiding behind this smile
and no i haven't come out for a while
see there is this place so empty inside me
that i'm hiding behind this smile

there must be some place warmer than here
my teeth chatter and i live in fear
but every attempt i attempt just impales me
leaving me broken and empty


no i'm not okay
no i'm not alright

(back to second part of the chorus)

    General CommentI love this song soo much. I think we've all been here. We break up and decide to be friends, when really all we want is to have them back. They've got it all together, and we're just trying to move on.
