Faces on the Inside

I gave myself
I gave myself
so you could gain

I’m sensitive
and I’m insane

Perfect seen in public eye
I once smiled
now I just lie

In the eyes
the fear takes root

For you, they cheer
from up above
All I wanted was your love

Am I wrong? Yes. And you are right.
She whispers softly
“mouth shut tight.”

Silent, yet I’ll stand, I’ll grow
to be more than you’ll ever know

There’s love and light
and there’s release
Into this, I’ll find my peace.

Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
I wish I wish he’d go away…

When I came home last night at three
The man was waiting there for me
But when I looked around the hall
I couldn’t see him there at all!
Go away, go away, don’t you come back anymore!
Go away, go away, and please don’t slam the door… (slam!)

Last night I saw upon the stair
A little man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
Oh, how I wish he’d go away…
