I try not to pay attention
To the voices in my head.
I try not listen
To all the things they’ve said.
They just don’t know what I go through.
They think I’m happy
They think my smile is true.
What seems like two days would feel like forever
I try to keep my cool,
But I can’t seem to get things together.
I follow the preacher
And try to take his advice.
I do everything in my power
And keep my prayers long and nice.
But I’ll do it. I’ll endure it.
I know I’ll sacrifice.
I’ll do it for the ones I love,
But I know I’ll pay the prize.
They think I got it all
All the attention and the praises.
But they just don’t realize
That I just want to be free from the crisis.
