Im doin fine
Thats what i used to tell you all the time
but I lie

Into a haze
of smoke and pills and tears that consume everyday
no more pain

this mystery of mine
in this thing we call life
am I having the time
the time of my life?

the time of my life?

All along I feel ashamed
I hope when its over
I can breathe again
I will breathe again

inside I am ready to break
someone please tell me its a mistake
happiness shouldn't be so damn hard
left me hopeless, frail and scarred

this story of mine
so misread all the time
I know its no use
brace yourself for the truth
my days are numbered

holding on to what little grace we had
all along a smile to face them all

Buried beneath the weight
I'm choking on seemingly nothing
but I can taste it.
I can taste it!
Belief that time would heal my pain
has left me stranded in the rain

take away all my pride
don't need it anyway
All my life, I cant take anymore
I can't sing a song I don't know

show me how
to sing along
sing with anyone
for anyone ohh.

I cant take anymore
whoa ooohhh.

holding on to what little grace we had
all along a smile to face them all
