Are you happy?
Are you glad that it went this way
The vivid memories are keeping me a slave
Who knew I could be so brave
Are you lonely
You’ll never feel the way I feel
A deep breath with no air never felt so real
Can you hear me gasping?
You and me and everything we used to be
Will never be the same
And if I could go back in time and change my mind
I don’t know if it would change
But you make me feel less
Don’t you believe me
When I say there’s a burning in my body
It remains in me until I’m dead and rotting
Don’t you see that I’m dying
Sweep me under your rug
With all the bones and the dust you collect there
So lovely, things that you speak of
A lovely mask you wear
But I think I’m happy
Despite your need for a happy ending
Someday you’ll have to stop pretending
Someday I’ll stop the charade
