This life we live can be cruel,
With bullies, teachers, and rules.
Sometimes the pain stays,
And life goes the wrong way.
"This is to all of us,
To all of us."
"I looked into your eyes today,
But I couldn't stand the pain, so I looked away."
I can't explain how it feels
To know the happiness you yield.
I've been there many times before.
I didn't want to know what life had in store.
"Don't wake me 'cause I'm dreaming
Of angels on the moon,
Where everyone you know
Never leaves too soon."
Don't ever take your own life.
You never know when you'll see a light.
There is no way to stop the pain,
But "if you want to see a rainbow, you must go through the rain."
"You can tell me all your thoughts,
About stars that fill polluted skies,
And show me where you run to
When no one's left to take your side.
But don't tell me where the road ends,
'Cause I don't wanna know.
No, I don't wanna know."</em>
