For a friend.
Remember the first time we met, how we both got in trouble, how we were scared out of our minds,
But I remember after that, I remember talking, our talk led to laughing.
I smile as you told me you thought I was mean before we met,
I wonder, have your impressions changed?
I admit, some things have never really changed around us,
If you look hard enough, things are still sane, and things are still the same.
But my mind, this is the problem, I think, I’m forever gone, or forever floating in some void,
Rose, do you ever get the feeling the world isn’t talking to you?
‘Cause honestly, I get it all the time, and some days, I’m terrified,
So bad, I’ve given up on trying to gain its attention, and I’m looking for something new,
I can play the part of the girl who has got it all together, I can play it well.
But this is only if I choose to, I really don’t know,
But behind closed doors, all the pieces fall apart gently.
And most days, I feel like it’s too much, I can’t even cry, because…
I’ve got to a point where it’s hard to hide it anymore, this is just who I am.
But this is your show, and it’s hard to shine all the time, I know,
I have so many flaws, I’m not so strong like Rose said I was.
I’m broken and hurting, but I’d still smile, and I’d probably do it all again if I knew and believed,
Things were gonna end well, and that we’d both find our way to heaven. I would.
