I looked to you for love and care,
I thought you'd be there for me
Did you realize and not care?
Or did you just see yourself in the mirror?

You told me to just figure it out
I was only seven so how?
I mean, I understand now
But, I was just a kid.

A kid with too much on their mind
Forced to grow up while you stayed a kid
Now I wonder what it's like
To be a kid, full of innocence

I wonder what it's like to make pretend
Instead of trying to make amends for you
I realize now that it's not my job
But even then I still don't recognize my own reflection

Instead of fight or flight
I'm trying to learn to just be alright
