No emotion? A life like this?
With never a smile, and never a kiss?
A compliment that makes the most beautiful cringe
Politeness that pushes your back against the fringe

Forget the fact that I care
Forget that I’m here
It could all come crashing down
And you’d still have me...

I will say anything that makes you feel alright
As long as you know
I’ll be forever scared of losing you

And I guess I’ll hide behind a mouth and squinty eyes
Because it’s harder for tears to fly
From eyes shut tight

No happiness? A change of pace?
No touch of your hand, no warmth of your face?
A goodbye hug that seems to stain your shirt
An “I Love You Too” that just seems to hurt

But I will bite my tongue
I’ll try not to be sweet
Because you could break the skin
And I’d still be yours...


I swear, I will find a way
To say the right things when you’re afraid
This is no lie
This is who I am

I swear, I turn to mush
Whenever you make an entrance
This is no lie
This is my life
