I’ve spent too much time

committing the same crime

I don’t know how to stop

to help me to the top


My confidence stays low

even as I start to glow

I’m not saying I don’t try,

but everyday I still cry


Each day is more of a chore

it hits me at my core

it doesn’t affect just me,

but everyone yet to be


It’s how I’ll be alone

even when I’m all grown

I can’t get over this

not with just one kiss


I still am like a kid

regretting everything I did

from the simple things

to complex rings


I love where I am

even through this dam

Everything feels great

Why do I put myself in this crate


I scare everyone away

if anything goes array

This can scare even me

to thinking it’s not to be


I was up late last night

thinking about this fright

I’ve felt this before

it almost destroyed my core


I love this man

no matter if i always can

I won’t just give this up

like a useless cup


He means the world to me

why can’t he see

how special he is too

he’s very cruel


he gives me the hope I lack

down my previous lonesome track

It still hurts to this day

not being able to take this away


My confidence is low for me

but not for him you see

he has potential too

if only he saw through you
