I miss you every day
And I wish with all my heart there was a way
A way to make you see
Just what you have done for me
You have made me see all the ways I can be strong
Even when it seems everything keeps going wrong
But if you were to sift though the cobwebs of my twisted mind
There are things there no one wants to find
Compared to others, I have no sad sob story, for heaven's sake
So why then are there these feelings I can't shake?
The sadness, the loneliness, the emptiness there
All that tell me in the end no one really cares
There is a faith that keeps hope alive
Telling me these thoughts, they are simply lies
But, like a fool, I see mto sabotage good things, both big and small
As if to prove to myself that I really am not worth it after all
And it seems to me, I really do isolate myself in a way
Because I always somehow drive those that I hold close away
For that, I can only say my thoughts and actions are unwise
Many times over and over to you I apologize
I told you once that I tend to drive people away
And you said, "I am still here, so what does that say?"
I wish I had just accepted then that I had a friend to stay
Why, oh why, do I punish myself this way?
