Look Me In The Eye

Do you know what it's like

to feel so out of control

like your house is not a home

and your friends leave you alone?

 

Do you know what it's like

for every mistake you've made

to be thrown back in your face?

Can you pretend to be okay?

 

Do you know how it feels

to have every thing you've ever loved

and everything you dream of

tell you that you're not good enough?

 

Can you tell me why?

Why do this to me?

Why see right through me?

Why leaveme lying, helpleslly?

Have you ever imagined

or even tried to grasp it?

So, why?

 

Can you look me in the eye

and tell me you didn't know,

you did it for the show,

you never meant to make me feel so alone?

Can you look me in the eye

and tell me it's not fair

or even that you care?

oh, and people will stare

at the girl all alone

I am so alone.

 

Do you understand me?

And I can barely breathe

this song is truly killing me

it's not something you can see.

 

Can you tell me how

everything is fine right now?

All of you go and take a bow,

every one of you beat me down.

 

Can you tell me why,

Why do this to me?

Why see right through me?

Why leave me lying, helplessly?

Have you ever imagined

or even tried to grasp it

so, why?

 

Can you look me in the eye,

and tell me you didn't know,

you did it for the show,

you never meant to make me so alone?

Can you look me in the eye

and tell me it's not fair,

or even that you care?

Oh, and people will stare

at the girl all alone.

I am so alone.

 

Look me in the eye,

I'll tell you what I know:

don't let anyone be in the world alone.
