I am numb to the words in my head all the time,

But I'm still feeling lost and lonely inside,

My friends can have fun and live their own lives,

While I'm stuck in the mirror feeling broken inside,

Making everyone laugh gets my mind off the pain,

But it always comes back just like clouds do with rain,

Not happy or fearless, those feelings are gone,

And I only feel peaceful when music is on,

The ones that I admire are so far away,

I can only hope that I'll meet them someway,

Stuck on my phone screen all night and all day,

And listening to sounds watching time slip away,

Lying in the dark with no smile but no sorrow,

Just think to myself "Will I be happy tomorrow?"

Cause I may have a family, a pet, and some friends,

But my mirror will always cause pain to no end.
