  • Sometimes it happens to feel down.
    Sometimes there is nothing you can do but wait.
    Sometimes everything remains in darkness even if it’s a sunny day
    For tears don’t let you see.
    And glue ain’t useful.

    There have been times in which I thought I would be better off alone.
    There have been times in which I felt trapped.

    But now that I could be free, now that I could make it my own way
    Tears don’t let me see.
    Glue ain’t useful.
    And it hurts.
    It hurts deep inside.
