LYRICS

I would always run away
Too afraid to face
The dark and lonely days
Used to paint the days in gold
Straining every nerve
To fit into the mold
It was just a game
To stop the pain

No, you shouldn’t keep it all inside
No, you shouldn’t keep it all inside

Drinks and drugs
They cannot bleach
All the brutal lessons
That those dark days teach
With bruising force
They made me see
The only tyrant here
Is the lonely boy in me
I feel his pain
It stops the rain
Feel the pain
Stop the rain

No, I couldn’t keep it all inside
No, I couldn’t keep it all inside
Oh, just call me weak
I’ll swallow my pride
No, can’t take another lie
I’ve tried
I’ve tried

So sit down
And close your eyes
You just have to trust it
Let dark arise
Embrace it
Don’t fight the need
You will see that bad days
Are ment to be

No, I couldn’t keep it all inside
No, I couldn’t keep it all inside
Oh, just call me weak
I’ll swallow my pride
No, can’t take another lie
I’ve tried
I’ve tried
