There's a wave of hatred

Washing on the shore

Don't waste your precious tears on me

I've been through this before.

I stopped trying to fight it

Such a long time ago

And maybe this is what it takes

What it takes to let you know.

That I know I'll always be okay

If I close my mouth and avert my eyes

I know that I can make my way

'Cause they don't notice

When my spirit dies. Don't take this for whining

I know there are others who feel this way too.

Maybe you're the only one who's ever noticed me

And I'm the only one who's ever noticed you.
