lyrics

I hang my head/
And abandon all optimism that I once had/
And I view the world much differently than I ever did/
I just see life for what it really is/
And I don't think I'm making any true progress/
I don't try to better how I felt/
I've never asked for help/
I just stay at home feeling sorry for myself/
I don't know why I get this way/
I've got friends and a loving family/
But I pretend that they're gone/
Then I wonder why I feel alone/
I've never understood how someone could just take their own life/
But now I think of that act every waking moment of mine/
I'm not saying I would do the same/
I just feel empathy/
For I now know apathy/
Because it envelops me/
Dear friend you've opened my eyes/
To the darker side of life/
And I'm not blaming you at all/
I'm just saying that without you/
I would still be naive/
I would still be happy/
But I'm not/
And I never will be/
I can never go back/
To a positive perspective on the life I live/
