Why can't someone stay by my side? Why must I run and hide? What is it that you do not see in me? Is it too much to ask peacefully? I make my effort and be my best Still there is a gaping hole in my chest My mind is never at ease so it refuses to rest If you have the answer, answer them be my guest With glasses I see 20/20 but I am blind For what I need most I never can find So I tend to go back in rewind Which puts me in a greater bind The many words that have been said Tend to linger in my head What you see is not what you get As many move on with no regret Tell me something before you run away in silence That simple action causes more emotional violence There are many stories to be told From this damaged man with a heart of gold I must fade into the foggy abyss In the darkness longing for someone to love and kiss My message is crystal clear As my eyes are dry as the desert sky not shedding a single tear.
