You’ve Seen Me

you have seen me writhe in the wake of disappointment, crushing in its size
you have seen me roll when the burning of frustration has dropped me to the floor

that’s when I hear you say
lighten up you miserable child, you’ve got no reason to whine
let me tell you something about the world, you’ve got no cause to complain

you have seen me cry in the dimness of our bedroom when we’re lying on our sides
you have felt me pull away when I’m holding onto anger and dragging out the pain

that’s when I hear you say
lighten up you miserable child, you’ve got no reason to whine
let me tell you something about the world, you’ve got no cause to complain

when I feel your point of light, it isn’t long till I’m up again
when it’s working out alright you see me baring a little grin

you’ve seen me high
you’ve seen me
