never show the tears
never show the scars
deep within my heart
deep within my soul

you see a smile
I feel a frown
you see my eyes
hidden teardrops waiting to drown

the boy you once knew
now just a memory in your head
all of the things that never got said

the image I projected
my reality was rejected

I feel safer in the shadows
so you can’t see me cry
I’d rather be away from this
looking down from the sky
