Everybody see 's the smiles that I give away to hide this thing I face day by day.
They see how happy I pretend to be, will they ever see the real me?
At night I cry my past life,
I don't let anyone know my fright.
I'm afraid of people not accepting me for me.
I try to forget about it but it's always on my mind.
This is one secret nobody will ever find.
I feel I'm hiding my soul, sometimes I think it's not worth anything more than coal.
In my past life, I have seen so much,
I've been through even more.
I feel like a stone washed up on the sandy shore.
I lay here waiting for someone to take me away.
It seems as though I can't decide whether to follow nor to stay.
I go to others and I only get pushed away.
Then I feel lonely as if I was an old bottle drifting down the bay.
I try my hardest to go on with life day by day
