Who is there left to turn to?
When it feels like the whole world is against you
Friends and lovers abandon your side
Leaving you in question, confused and wondering why..

A best friend I once knew no longer realizes my presence
And another one stole her and tries to make me unexistent
I keep hoping to wake up from this terrible dream
But every new morning feels unbareable, or so it seems..

God only knows how I make through each day
With my heart torn to pieces, I barely survive in some way
Will it ever be mended? Can I ever move on?
Because the rate that I'm going, I won't last for long..

How could people you trust hurt you in this way?
The worst part being they don't know what I have to say
I can't help but keep these words and feelings inside
It scares me to think how we can be friends if i tried..

Because I know what it is to be a friend to another
But your obliviousness to me shows we arent for each other
I can still hope and dream can't I?
Wishing you would please just open your eyes..

Either you are blind somehow or another
Or you simply don't care, and will treat me as any other
Till the day you awaken and start to realize
You deserted a true friend, he loved you, or at least tried
