taken from a cozy home
nothing left to call my own
i turn around, i hear my name
what i see is not the same

darkness hovers over me
smothering each and every dream
dying bits of stolen glee
stolen moments, stolen me

hijacked by what i thought was true
they said that i had paid my dues
what i pay is never right
i start all over, lost the fight

"keep on living" they all say
but they can't chase these fears away
when i lay crying on my bed
i can't recall what people said

dreams don't become reality
i thought they did, stupid me
too bad that happiness was fake
next time i won't make that mistake

i wish what i had felt was real
sadness never has appeal
just send me back, just give me glee
all i wanted was to be happy
