I wish I could tell you
I'm just tired
But it's more than that
I can't even look at you
Straight on
All these moods
Running through my head
I rub my eyes and look away
The sunbeams catch my eyes
You never even notice how
Many times I blink against the light
You're telling me I could be anything
And the world is lovely and we should be together
But I only hear the first part
I get up to walk away
And the ceiling crashes down
I never remembered screaming
My throat burned from the sound
My fingers wrapped around your hands
Begging for the world to end
Hearing you say words
That aren't loud enough
"She's crazy" is all I make out
And I like the way it feels in my head
To hear you give in to the truth
I look outside and the sun is gone
It's only dark
But I see eyes coming towards me
At the speed of light
You were there grabbing for me
But you were never fast enough
The eyes grew closer
And the car took my life
I heard you say "suicide"
And though you would never know the truth
I knew you were right
