She Dies Inside

Wilting Rose

She looks down as she enters

She doesn't want to have to explain

She'll keep it locked inside

All of the confusion and the pain

Her self-destruction shall remain

And behind the wall she's built

She's withering away inside

She's bruised and she's battered

From all the cheating and the lies

She lives this thin disguise

She's lost behind that smile

And she shies from every touch

She could never let them in

Because she always cares too much

But she can never get enough

She hates to think of what will be

And what lies behind every door

She left everything she loved behind

Because she wanted so much more

She'll be searching forevermore
