When will I learn, When will I learn? let myself fall to the ground like every time before. I'm staring back at square one.

I wear my heart out on my sleeve & give a piece of it to everyone I hold so dear & I live in constant fear of never finding someone here.
to love and hold & call my own. I'm always here, I'm all alone.

I don't have to pretend, I know I'm not okay. You can see it in my face. I can see myself fading away
I don't have enough will left In me to seek my self affinity. When did I become so uneasy; so unsure of
what's in me?

I need a soul to claim this home because I've been far away from home for too long
Ill wither but I'm learning to cope. I wish I was strong enough to hold on to hope.

Stare into my gray eyes.

I'm finding hope in the darkest of
places. I'm spending nights in the corners of my skull. In time I'll learn to shine my light through the dark; for now I'll linger in the shadow of your doubt, and if I die before you wake, I want you to know this was my mistake not yours.

In time I'll learn to shine my light through your dark, and let you know that you're doing just fine without me.
