Have you ever wanted something?
But what you weren’t sure
Longing to be touched
But not until the cure
Have you longed for one to hold you?
To love you through your tears
But, couldn’t bring yourself to cry
Concealing all your fears
Do you ever dream of being happy?
Fulfilling all your dreams
Still, trembling at the truth
And how devastating it seems
Is there a yearning deep inside and
All you want is to understand
Why someone has really hurt you
Why it’s hard to take a stand
Is it hard each day?
To look yourself in the eye
Without feeling pain and guilt
But not knowing why
Do you avoid contact
With that person in the mirror
Forcing strong emotions away
Reinforcing loneliness and fear
Not on purpose, do you feel
You’ve sabotaged your own life
Like you and happiness are opposites
Elusive and full of strife
Did you ever want to someone to hold you?
And never let you go
Someone to say, “I love you”
Even with everything they knew
Someone you can trust,
To say you’re beautiful
Or, just someone you can trust
To be looked at like you’re a daughter of God
Not dirt or an object to lust
When someone has something very
Important to you, to say
Do you wish they’d just shut up and listen to you?
Or simply just go away
Do you wanna be better?
Then you really think you are
To finally cut the umbilical chord
Catch at last your wishing star
Have you felt that you were hopeless?
Living a horrific night time terror
Hating all the injustice – but knowing
She deserves it – her, the one in the mirror
Have you ever just had a whole lot
Of nothing left to say
Do you wish you could just stop your heart!
…and it’d all just go away?
