Can I motivate myself to crawl out of bed?
Can I inhale any air with these broken lungs?
And yesterday was bad, but today is worse
Life just keeps on passing me by with no remorse
Did you really know this? Did you really need to?
Did you really find out why?
"Can't you see me? Do you want to?"
I'm breaking apart everyday. And you don't notice.
"Can you feel that? It's my heartbeat."
And it's strength is getting weaker as we speak
"Can you fix it? Do you need me?"
Why am I standing here anyway?
"Can you tell me that you love me? Just lie to me for my sake."
"Can you just please let me go now?"
"Why am I still standing around anyway?"
You didn't know this. You didn't need to.
You didn't find out why.
You can't see me. You don't want to.
You can't feel that because it's not there.
You can't fix it, it's too broken.
You don't need me, enough's been spoken.
You lie to me and I'll lie back.
I'm doing fine, I'll be alright.
