The best things in life are unseen, that's why you close your eyes when you kiss, cry, or dream.
What doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.

Do you ever stretch the truth
It’s a stupid question
Cause I already know you do
Without hesitation
But did you ever think
You gave me the wrong sensation
Not tell me what’s better
A lie that draws a smile
Or the truth which draws a tear
You say who gives a damn
You have nothing left to fear
But you think deep down
You still love me
And that I have no reason
To even think the word worry
But the more times
I hear the word sorry
The less it means to me
You say I should be happy
Cause I have you to turn to
But it’s all a lie
And it doesn’t matter what I do

I don’t know why I stick with you
After all the times you’ve lied
And you say that you love me
But love’s the slowest form of suicide
Is that why you like me
Cause I’m your way out
So someday you can leave
Is that why you keep me around
This is what I’ve learned
And it goes to show
Reality bites
And doesn’t let go

I think I must love struggling
And I know that you love smuggling
So everytime I forget how to breathe
Its when I hear your voice threatening to leave
Its hard to say, but I know
I’m insane
But I can’t seem to let you go
Even though all you do is make it rain
The lightning is my terror
The thunder is your rage
I should just let you leave
So I can crawl out of these chains
I like the way you hurt me
Even though it makes me cry
But I hate the way you smile
Cause you know I know you lie
