I wanted to tell you, I wanted to share,
Some important details that you're unaware of.
I want you to listen, I want you to care,
I'll choke to death if I don't clear the air.
It's not a secret that I obsess,
And then I get angry and then I get stressed.
And you can't imagine and you can't compare,
You've no frame of reference and then you get scared.
I'm doing my best to help make you see,
That it's not your fault when I beg and I plead.
It's much easier just to go back to sleep,
But we've got to find a place to start,
Because I'm falling apart.

I'll never feel happy, I never feel safe,
I can't let myself ever stay in one place.
I look in the mirror and I see the face,
Of a failure who will never be significant.
The face that you see from the morning to night,
Is the mask that I put on to hide what's inside.
I don't take it off until you fall asleep,
I don't want you to see what lives inside of me.
I thought I'd get older and it'd go away,
But it only gets worse and causes more pain,
And being alone is getting so hard,
I just got to tell you..

Goddammit, I'm falling apart!
I'm down on my knees in the dark,
Feeling for whatever is left,
But the pieces are falling too far.

Don't leave yet, I haven't got to the part that explains it all.
Don't leave yet, I need somebody there to catch me before I fall.
To catch me before I fall.
Goddammit, I'm falling apart!

I wanted to tell you, I wanted to share,
Some important details that you're not aware of.
I want you to listen, I want you to care,
I'll choke to death if I don't clear the air right now.
