Why this, why now?

You’re so in love, but you can’t have

What you love.

He loves someone else, but you love him.

She’s in your way,

But there’s nothing you can do to stop her. 

You hide behind a mask,

So no one sees the pain.


You’re dying inside.

No one seems to notice the act your showing.

People find love right where they are.

They take off,

Starting a new life, with whom they love.

But me,

I’m just a lonely girl, in a lonely world.
