I might be strong, or I might be weak.
I don’t want anyone to see, what love has done to me.
I’ve never been accepted, I always had to pretend.
I just want this fake reality, to just end.
I cant heal my own broken world, when I’m losing hope.
I guess when it comes down to it, I learned to cope.
I guess I’m use to this, use to feeling alone.
Not one time in my life, have I not been on my own.
