14 years of running away. 14 very long years of hiding, pretending to be someone else and trying to become who they wanted me to be.
But now it's out. Now I am who I am.
Maybe it will help. Maybe I'll be able to get some sleep again. Maybe now I'll be able to open up. Maybe now I'll be able to talk about it. Maybe...
But what if it makes things worse. What if lose control. What if I fall apart. What if won't be able to handle the pain. What if...
Flashbacks getting worse. My head is about to explode. Breathe. Stay focused. Don't stop when going through hell. Keep going. Keep running. Don't stop. Slow your heart. And breathe.
Embarrassed and ashamed
Open your heart and tell me what's wrong
Why can't you talk like you used to do before
I don't know if I'm weak, I don't know if I'm strong
Hey I just can't cope anymore
And I've been waitin'
For a friend to knock on my door
I've been hopin'
That everything could be like before
Open your heart, let me hear you
Make up your mind, I want to hear you call
Open your heart, want to come near you
Make up your mind, before we lose it all
