Something is missing I fail to explain My heart, it feels different Everyone seems the same You have your jocks and your preppies Your freaks and your geeks Every one of them Seem to know what they need Not one single friend Seems to need me. A cherry pop princess Thugs and Ghetto fabs Nobody understands me I donít fit those fads. They say that they know me That they hear all my thoughts He says that he loves me Does he see me at all? Maybe I am common Maybe I am weak To fear all these things And secrets I keep Somehow I donít know Just what this life means Look out this window It leads to my soul It will show you What you need to knowSnowflake
Just the other day passing by I think I saw your face the second time In and out of my life Like the doorstep that I am Now that I have read between the lines Cried on with the rain Broken heart the second time I will never be the same Now is not the time To let myself explain You let them take us over for that I feel the pain Looking for some comfort searching for the day Someone who will love me With them I will stay I'm hopelessly devoted These strings did prop me up To you i gave my whole heart My mind, my soul, my love I'm walking on the freeway Crying in the sun Walking from the storm cloud Far from anyone You took so many feelings From the me I thought I was and now I stand alone no one left to love Took my old ex from me He probably would've stayed But I kind of felt I wanted it that way Serene like Brooklyn In a city full of gray I'll let my tree grow on Though they stole my heart away Same old story I couldn't just admit I knew he'd leave me Before I'd think of leaving him Gave up on the mountain He tried so hard to climb I watch him fall down it He'd 've made it to the sky You got what you came for And now you fall away I wish that you Only would've stayed I thought you loved me I guess i didn't know I was just another Snowflake in the snow.Cries of Pity
covered in darkness buried in clay trying to conceive the right words to say sinking in quicksand with each word I speak finding myself so incredibly weak coals of fire leave my eyes I'll pretend that I'm just fine Cry for pity plea for peace Let me go I need release Take my heart stab my back Laugh it off like nothing's wrong with that I'm standing here Back down on my knees I see so clear Do you see me? Trying to find My place in the crowd Just one face that hears me out I can't fight the sickness It's much too strong All this self pity and nothing else wrong You gave me a chance and I threw it away So I guess now I Deserve to pay.Forgotten
Eye in eye we ponder In a silence that we share I pretend to wonder And you pretend to care Deeply in your eyes I can read your thoughts You have just erased All the morals you've been taught Blow me a kiss at midnight cuz I know this means farewell If this moment could last forever Then forever I'd be well My heart is beating faster By the rhythm of the clock And now, well I feel silly I see my future being mocked In your eye I know That you don't mimick me But I feel so far away With no you, I am lonely Tell me where you're going Take me where you've been send me on not knowing that I have been forgotten.
