You wonder why I don't go out
You wonder why I sometimes pout.
You wonder why I like my own space
You wonder why I never leave my place.
You hate the fact I am carefree,
But you don't see the truth behind me.

You don't see the fear in my eyes,
You don't see the tears that I cried.
You only see what you want to see,
You only see what you want me to be.
I disappoint you in every way,
Which is why I don't want to stay.

(So please don't ask me why I'm never around)

    So sad but beautifully constructed. I really like the line "you only see what you want to see", sums up the relationship for me. Nice one :)

    Thank you Drew. Unfortunately I couldn't have the full length version on here as it's too long. :-)
