I'm Dying Over Here
Author: Ben Laney

vinebar

Somtimes I'm laughing
to cover my pain
I put on a smile
in the driving rain
I'm out there acting
as if it's all okay
When all the while
I'm fading away

Oh oh I'm dying over here
Hey hey I'm dying over her
Feeling so alone
wishing you were near
Oh oh I'm dying over here
Hey hey I'm dying over here


Lately I'm reeling
losing all control
Still I keep reaching
for something to hold
It gets hard trying
Not to let it show
When all these feelings
are burning through my soul

I am down on my knees
every single night
Asking my God to please
please help me in this fight

Oh oh I'm dying over here
Hey hey I'm dying over here
Feeling so alone
wishing you were near
Oh oh I'm dying over here
Hey hey I'm dying over her

------- Author's Notes -------

This one speaks on more than one level, I think. There's not much I have to say about it except that for some reason this took me quite a while in the writing. Oh, and I really hope you like it!

Terrie*, maybe we are both...

Terrie*, maybe we are both strangers in a stranger world, but since you are a girl, girlfriend, we cannot possibly be one in the same! Haa! Haaa! Haaaa! However, I do thank you for your glowing comment, and I am glad to hear that you think my writing is beautiful. I appreciate it!
