Cut

I can see the pain through your eyes
I feel the aching within your damp tears
I couldn't imagine your sorrow in any way
But I want to help you
I want to help you

To open my eyes and see how you smile
Knowing that it's never real
To seal them shut and realize
That you're really empty on the inside

I'm sorry for not noticing you
I'm sorry that you're falling apart
I'm sorry I can't cry with you
I'm sorry for not being your friend
It hurts to know you're lifeless
It hurts to know you're broken
It hurts to know you're cut
Like me...

I can see the pain pour from your veins
I feel the aching upon your skin
I couldn't imagine this life in any way
But I want to help you
I want to help you

To open my mouth and begin to speak
Wishing the words were healers
For you to live and breathe again
Instead of being ripped inch by inch

I'm sorry for not noticing you
I'm sorry that you're falling apart
I'm sorry I can't cry with you
I'm sorry for not being your friend
It hurts to know you're lifeless
It hurts to know you're broken
It hurts to know you're cut
Like me...

I want to just turn away from you
Lurk into the shadows like I always do
I've brought this upon myself
To want to help someone who hurts
Who keeps burning deep inside
Who is choking on every breath they take
Like me, like me, like me

Close my eyes, shut my mouth
Let go of your hands, let you fall
I'm sorry for you; I'm sorry for me

Open my eyes, open my mouth
Grasp your hands, never let you fall
I forgive you; I forgive me

I'm sorry to know you're lifeless
I'm sorry to know you're broken
I'm sorry to know you're cut
I'm sorry to know you're beaten
I'm sorry to know you're abused
I'm sorry to know you're cut
I'm sorry...
I'm sorry
