  • I can't afford to let my heart be broken
    I'm tired of being other people's token
    In front of them I'm just a clone
    But deep inside i'm all alone
    One day I wish I would fly away
    But instead I follow what they say

    Trapped inside what they think of me
    My only want is to be free
    Locked inside how I want to seem
    I do not live but only dream

    With all my might on the door I pound
    But my kicks and pleads don't make a sound
    And in the dark I scream and shout
    In the end, what is this all about?

    I just want someone to care
    My doubts and joys I need to share
    It's not beauty or fame I'm after
    I just want to feel I matter.
