I can’t see myself when I look in the mirror
But, I know who’s there and I don’t care
I’ll look the same as before.
I can’t hear myself when I shout at the sky
I haven’t found my voice, but that was my choice
When I told myself ‘goodbye,’
Sometimes at night when I hear the wind blowing
I wish it was cold out, and that it was snowing
So I’d have a reason to keep warm.
If you stay very still, you can hear my heart beating
Be careful though, it’s so close to breaking
Don’t let it fall on the floor.
Sometimes I wonder if smiles get old
Will you still be smiling when you are this old?
Not old like I am, but old as in dying
When you say you’re fine, but really, you’re lying.
I can hold my breath longer than you can
But I can’t hold it as long as my sister can
I might keep holding it, almost to death
And while you are laughing, I’ll still be gasping for breath.
