Trapped

You came to me weak and broken
And my feelings were unspoken
I tried to fix, I tried to mend you
But your feelings for me weren’t true
Your heart was hidden from me
Now I see how you will never be
No man will ever see you
In the way that my eyes do
I will always be there
Even though it seems you don’t care

Just another girl from the shelf
Lonely and trapped inside yourself
I was there to break your shell
And to remove you from your cell
I tried to hard over the years
To build my dams to hold your tears
But small holes turned into leaks
And your tears of hate flowed for weeks
And now my dams are weak and broken
And still my feelings are unspoken

I was another page in your book
That last fight was all it took
Now if you turn my page
Your eyes show me your hurt and rage
Sometimes I wish I stayed with you
And that your feelings for me stayed true
But as I lay here this warm night
And I gaze into the light
I lie here and think of you
And it is all that I can do

Just another girl from the shelf
Lonely and trapped inside yourself
I was there to break your shell
And to remove you from your cell
I tried to hard over the years
To build my dams to hold your tears
But small holes turned into leaks
And your tears of hate flowed for weeks
And now my dams are weak and broken
And still my feelings are unspoken

I still feel the pressure from your lips
And my skin uneath’ your fingertips
I told you until the end
And to you my life I would lend
Then you went and pushed me away
And left me here with still things to say
Now my words fall on deaf ears
And still my feelings for you are still here
You were always with other guys
Now I guess it was no surprise
Now I drink when I think of you
And it’s all that I can ever do

Just another girl from the shelf
Lonely and trapped inside yourself
I was there to break your shell
And to remove you from your cell
I tried to hard over the years
To build my dams to hold your tears
But small holes turned into leaks
And your tears of hate flowed for weeks
And now my dams are weak and broken
And my feelings will never be spoken
