To all the ones whom I heard say
“I will always stay”
They already left, but that’s okay
And I won’t even bother to cry and mope
‘Cause I have lost all hope
She says “It’s not like you’ve seen the world!”
I already know that, yet I feel like I am cursed
Why can’t she see I am protecting myself?!
What does the world have left to give me?!
Aside from death and uncertainty.
That’s why I sit on the sea
Making promises I won’t keep
So I go to my room and pray all-day
To be happy, not just in pain.
And I keep her whispers close to my heart
For a man cannot cry at war.
I kept my distance from them all
Living in the shell of my soul
Believing that this is where I belong
Not knowing that I am wrong.
And here I am, giving a small example to you
Who thought that life won’t get you through
All the hardships and the people you’ve lost
But believe me, it’s only their loss.
And I know that you’ll come out one day
Filled with happiness in every way
Because you have so much in you
Because we are all human too.
