Author's Note: If you can picture this, you'll get what this song sounds like: A medium-slow beat; A light voice, though a bit
dark and forceful at times; Acoustic, mostly, though there are times when different instruments would come in like keyboard and
electric guitar. That's it, basically. Enjoy.

I won't laugh if you cry in front of me
I know how it feels to be stuck inside the fray
And you can't seem to get away
No matter what you do, what you say
You know it's always gonna be this way.

I think I lost you when I changed my smile
It was an easy transition
But they didn't know it was fake
I felt like a fraud in my skin
I was someone that I hated
Someone that lies to your face
And doesn't feel sorry
No, doesn't feel sorry.

The fray
It's the time when you change
When nothing happens
Nothing goes right
Everything's a mess
You wanna get away
But you can't
Because your stuck inside
The fray.

I see you going down
See you cry in it's pain
See you wish I was there
See you want me to care
See you look away…
(four second pause)
Then you turn back
And look in my eye
And you say
I see where your stuck inside…

The fray
It's the time when you change
When nothing goes right
Everything's a mess
You wanna get away
But you can't
Because your stuck inside
The fray.

Tears descend from eyes
Lexis egress from my mouth
Moans escape…

I know your leaving
I know where your going
I know what your doing
I know how you feel
And I feel the same way too.
You say
I know how to end this
You can come with me too…

The fray
It's the time when you change
When nothing goes right
Everything's a mess
You wanna get away
But you can't
Because your stuck inside
The fray.
