I've known you for a long time
But you don't know who I am
You've never even heard of me
But I love you all the same
You may think I don't understand
That I never could
I'm hopeless, I'm worthless, like the others
I should really just give up
But I've got news for your chainsaw
You won't get rid of me so easily
I live free and die hard
You'll never kill me
I've memorized your lifetime
Your past is infamous
Trust me, I feel sorry
If I could have stopped it...
After all, did you deserve it?
Did you need any blame?
The fires dance inside your eyes
The answer, always no
Baby, baby, I know why you're hurting
Baby, can I try?
The damage has already been done
But maybe I can stop any more?
Silent monsters lashing at you
Invisible to the rest of us
And who on Earth would ever think
These creatures are only words?
I see the intangible scars
Whip-like marks that never go away
More appear before my very eyes
How do you even have the will to live?
Don't listen to them
Don't let their words bruise you
I hate to see you hurting
Come on, you know they're just lying
They're jealous of us
They're the ugly ones, not you
Why don't you believe me?
I've always told you the truth
I understand what you've been through
'Cause I've been there a few times too
Every part of me aches
Just to have us belong
Being different isn't bad
It just means you're special
Don't look at me with those eyes
I swear I would never lie to you!
That's right, you can lay your head on me
My shoulder's never occupied
The rush of so many years of pain
Just let it go... let it go... let me take it now...
There, now don't you feel better?
I've wished forever to be so close to you
I've loved you for so long
Now just try to understand...
How it feels to have you love me back...
