why is love my only goal
why is a boy on my arm the key to my soul
the only thing that would make me happy
is to have someone to hold
someone to hold me
when I feel like I wanna die
when I sit in my room
and just sit there and cry
but every time I get the chance
to get what I’m looking for
this side comes out of me
this desperate wanna be
the one that plays love like a game
lies when all I wanna do is tell you
I wanna be yours
I listen to all my ‘friends’
the ones that tell me to play cool
but there all the reason
I had to lose you
if you only knew
what I thought inside
the way you picked me up
when I thought I wanted to die
the way you look at me
makes me feel like I’m finally good enough
that I could take down my walls
and stop acting so tough
but you’ll never know how I really feel
cause I really fucked it up this time
I said one too many lies
one too many times
so I’ll let you go
I’ll let you leave
but maybe one day you’ll see
see through my walls
I spent years building up
and care enough to tear them down

When I was a young man, I wanted to change the world. I found it was difficult to change the world, so I tried to change my nation. When I found I couldn't change the nation, I began to focus on my town. I couldn't change the town and as an older man, I tried to change my family. Now, as an old man, I realize the only thing I can change is myself, and suddenly I realize that if long ago I had changed myself, I could have made an impact on my family. My family and I could have made an impact on our town. Their impact could have changed the nation and I could indeed have changed the world."

This is amazing no joke i love it!
