Pretend

Where am I going with my life?
When does the emptiness cease?
How many tears must I give away...
On my knees, at night, begging please?

I'm surrounded by people that love me
Still, I'm facing this world all alone
In search of a kind heart, tenderness
Different from this pain, I have known

I'm human, just human, like everyone else
I bleed just as much as they do
I try to be the best person I can
Striving for myself to be true

I never wanted to cause any hurt
Though I have darkened a door, now and then
If I could I would erase my whole life
Would I dare to start it over again?

I wonder where I'm going with my life
When each day, I long for the end
I'd put on a smile and be happy...
Yet why waste more time and pretend?
