A Tortured Mind
You see that girl you pass every day?
Could you imagine her life in some other way?
There’s something there you wouldn’t expect,
She’s living proof of cause and effect
Just take a moment and look inside
A peek behind a tortured mind
There are parts of her past she wants to erase
She skillfully masks it all behind her pretty face
She’ll have you fooled with her expert fake smile
But will anyone notice and stay a while?
To see inside her tortured soul,
And glimpse the monsters she tries to control
She's running in circles; in hopeless pursuits,
She slips on a road block built of false truths
These are the truths she has come to believe
As she chases her past down a road of dead dreams
She runs and runs away from the pain,
Searching for something that she cannot explain
Her heart has been ripped, torn, and broken
All from the years of heartless words spoken
Her silent screams ignite through her being,
She blinks back the tears that keep her from seeing
She's gasping for help, can't hold on much longer
Will you be the one to help her get stronger?
Is anyone there?
Does anyone care?
Does anyone want to look inside?
And sort through the pain she's tried so hard to hide?
Will you be the one to help put down her knife?
Will you be the one to save her life?
I will be the one, I said that one night.
I promise to hang on with you, help you live your life right.
I will not abandon you, not now, not ever.
I won't give up, I'm promising you forever.
If forever is what it takes for you to have better days,
Then together, forever we'll chase the monsters away
Today will be the day you will put down that knife
Darling, look back on all of your struggles and strife,
And just let them all go in one single breath
To have a release like that, wouldn't it beat out all the rest?
No tortured end.
Just us against the world.
Me and you.
