It'll Be Over Soon

i'm not upset i'm not upset i'm not upset

i'mnotupseti'mnotupseti'mnotupset

i'mnotcrying

i'mokay

i'll be alive tomorrow

and life will move on

and what i'm left out of

and what i don't get

won't matter next week

or next month or next year

and when my tears dry

i mean i have no tears

but soon life will be better

and the heavy weights i feel now

will be lifted

just a few more steps

a few more hours

a few more days

soon it will be gone

and relief will be here

like lemonade on a hot summer's day

but the heat is beating down so hard

and my sunburns won't heal

and the tattoo on my wrist is fading

fading fast

and i think i may be fading with it

don't take me yet

i'm almost done

just a few more minutes

a few more hours

a few more days

i'll be done soon
