You say there's a sadness in my eyes
Inevitable when surrounded by lies
Settle for second best without a fight
I'll be sold out when the price is right

When the stars are gone
You can carry on
Hold your head up high
And the clouds roll by

I don't care what you say
You never meant that much to me, anyway
Just keep living for myself
Cause you'll never know what I thought or how I felt

You say I'm selling myself short
Sharing my heart only as a last resort
"You'll never pull yourself through"
Isolation from all I knew

Where's your smile now?
You'll still wonder how
I held my head up high
When I passed you by

I'm not ending today
Did you think that I'd just lay down and die?
Did you think that you meant that much in my life?

    General CommentAlong with every other song by TCP...I love this one too. The verse
    "When the stars are gone
    You can carry on
    Hold your head up high
    And the clouds roll by"
    is so true. I don't know how they do it, but they say everything to the point. I love them. I can never thank them enough for everything. It's so great to know that you're not alone.
