You see that boy in the back,
That tries to cause other's laughter
Always working to keep up the act.
But what isn’t seen is the after...
We don’t see all the hidden scars
Or the silent stream of tears.
You don’t see how he looks to the stars
The way he’s strangled by his fears.
We never saw the growing cracks
The pieces that slowly fell apart
But now we feel the impacts,
That aching within our heart.
Those who were close, lose the will to start
The strained feeling around friends
The empty feelings in our heart
These emotions that no one comprehends
If only someone had seen the signs
Or if he had asked for a hand
Maybe then we wouldn’t be forced to resign
To this aching we will never understand...
