Rest my red eyes,
From being so sad,
Not all the tears,
Could bring it back,
Why does this all hurt so bad

Erase all traces of my happy face,
And remember,
How far you’ve dragged me down,

My smiles they quiver,
As my strong head falls,
It’s hard to keep your head up,
When you hear what you’ve been told,
What’s the use of fighting,
For something so cold,
You’re better off growing old,
This way,
The scars will heal,
Then this story could be told,

Rest my red eyes,
From being so sad,
Not all the tears,
Could bring it back,
Why does this all hurt so bad

I look at your face in hindsight,
Does the trail of tears you lead me to,
Show that you put up a fight?
Does it show me where I went wrong?
Or will it make me feel like I belong?
Will it comfort me and tell me it’ll be alright?
When my eyes are shut out from all the light?
Will this all help me realize the bigger picture?
Will any of the questions I ask be answered?
- One can only go so far,
For so long,
To make one feel like they belong,
But was I here for you,
I’ll say it,
Watching you change “doesn’t hurt anymore”
But it does,
What happened to you?
You’ve changed,
You’ve fucking changed,

Read me back,
Take me back,
To a time where you gave a shit,
To a place where you were here,
To a day where we weren’t second guessing,
Ourselves

Rest my red eyes,
From being so sad,
Not all the tears,
Could bring it back,
Why does this all hurt so bad
Rest my red eyes,
From being so sad,
