Maybe no one told you there is strength in your tears
And so you fight to keep from pouring out
But what if you unlock the gate that keeps your secret soul
Do you think there’s enough that you would drown?

If no one will listen
If you decide to speak
If no one’s left standing after the bombs explode
If no one wants to look at you
For what you really are
I will be here still
I will be here still

No one can take you where you alone must go
There’s no telling what you will find there
And, God, I know the fear that eats away at your bones
It’s screaming every step, “Just stay here”

If you find your fists are raw and red from beating yourself down
If your legs have given out under the weight
If you find you’ve been settling for a world of gray
So you wouldn’t have to face down your own hate

    no one's told me...everyone needs to be told this...everyone needs someone in their life who is always there for them, and means it when they say they are
