Let It Out

Author:

Been thirsty for love

Yet no one could satisfy

Ungrateful for what I have

Waiting for this heart to die


How do I let it out

All the fears, the pains, and doubts

Afraid to shout it out

These feelings straight through my mouth


And yet emptiness deluges me

A vast that's built inside

Then how do I let it out

When I feel empty from inside-out


I've been lonely for so long

Wore an outstretched smile so you’d never know

Disguised so I could belong

The demons inside should I never show


Been looking for someone

to fill the gap inside of me

Instead, I wore this rope I've made

And let it out silently

Yet this world keeps us apart
