And the world fell down

You left me with the world on my shoulders
And turned the other cheek when i gave you a piece.
You told me your secrets and made me swear
But when i tried to tell you mine, you just walked away

I tried to help you when you had a trouble
But when i ask for help, you remove yourself into your own little bubble
You judge me like you know me
But sorry love, you don’t

So now when you ask me how i am
with that mocking concern in your eyes
I paste on a smile
And tell you i’m fine

I’m tired of being the one who holds the world
And is pushed to the side for someone else
You make me promises, which you always break
And that care in your voice is lathered in fake

I’m worn out from being left out of your plan
Your life story of which i am an extra man
I’m tired of holding it all in
For its beginning to eat my soul like sin

Im exhausted from waiting on an empty platform,
For a train that never comes.
Trying to reach a destination that is always out my grasp
A destination my fingers wish to clasp

My shoulder are sore, my back in pain
For the weight of your world is insane
But i guess you wouldn’t even noticed if i dropped it to the floor
And turned my other cheek and walked through the door…

And the world fell down

Artist's Description

Today was bad day i guess… i was angry, and i am certainly not an angry person, i mean, i was even nominated as mIss sunshine becuase im always smiling but today, it just boiled over… People, people, people…. they can be so temperamental, zealous, competitive, hurtful, callous, fake and untrustworthy people and they all lay on the problems with me and sometimes, i just want to explode. They expect so much, isn’t what i give enough, what more can i give you when I’m already giving you my heart and soul?
