I’m not going to put on a façade
Because I’m not here to impress
For no one else could understand
The pain I feel inside
An anger in myself
Buried deep inside
I let myself down one to many times

I CANNOT FACE MYSELF
I keep it buried deep inside because they didn’t win I lost

As I look back
It’s hard to fight back the tears
But I stand strong
And hold it all inside
I built this wall
A wall of strength deep inside
Only to watch it fall
Complacency I need to ease this pain inside

I CANNOT FACE MYSELF
I keep it buried deep inside because they didn’t win I lost


Take my mind
Forget my thoughts
Throw away my dreams
Overcome this burden
Complacency I need
This I will succeed
I will overcome the burden of defeat
Work so hard day by day
As I watch it all slip away
Another year same story
I failed again
Haunted by the burden of defeat
WHEN WILL I OVERCOME THIS BURDEN

As the fire still burns
The will to win is there
The only way to beat the demon
Es to give it one more try
This time I will succeed
Yes I will succeed
I will overcome the burden of defeat

I CANNOT FACE MYSELF
I keep it buried deep inside because they didn’t win I lost
