Where do I begin?
How do I start?
Do I have to reveal my true self to you,
Or can I keep hiding?
The masks I wear are easy to wield
It's a second me, something you've gotten used to
I love you, I really do
So don't doubt me when I say I'll never leave you
My depression is like a snake, always constricting me,
But here you are, scaring it away
How can you do that?
How are you able to make me smile?
There are so many things I don't understand
One of them being love
Is it truly meant to give life?
Or destroy the fragility that is the mind?
I have found you at last
The one meant for me, the one meant to keep me smiling
Here you are, striking a spark of happiness every day
The strength of my emotion is no equivalent as to the words I speak
I read you like a book when we first met,
You were so strong, proud, even having that "tough guy" feel
You were outgoing and always happy
But now I know the reasons
You are like me, happy on the outside, crying on the inside
We both have scars on our skin
We both need help from each other
We both love each other
You are my significant other, my one true outlet,
Even the jaded eternity that is of heartache cannot compare
Even in the darkest corner of my heart, you hold a place there
You have started a fire in my chest
My walls are shattering, my heart is still like glass,
How do you manage to keep them intact?
How can you keep my heart at ease?
How can you keep my mind from losing all sense of what is right?
Even though I say my music tells you more than I could with words,
It's not entirely true, compared to how my heart screams with what's on my mind
My music is a mere addition to the expression,
It doesn't always tell you everything
Let me be in my cage alone
Allow me to close myself in, terrified of what will come
Throw away the key and keep me locked inside
Let me hide behind the bars that keep me safe
Don't forget I've let you inside my walls..
Don't forget how much I trust you
Don't forget how much I love you,
And don't forget how much I care about you
