Tell me Something

Tell me something
Not an empty something
Tell me the truth
Don't tell me to just smile
Or hide it all inside
Cause those things aren't working
I've got no one by my side.
Give me a reason
Stop telling me lies
I need to know how to function
How to survive.
I've tried to grow up
To pretend that I'm fine
I've even tried slicing my skin
Just to prove there's blood inside.
Still I lie here all alone
With tears that I can't cry
Cause I know if I started
The last little piece of me will die.
So tell me something
Tell me the truth
Give me a reason
Give me back my youth.

Me
