    I dont wanna smile coz its a sad day
    And on sad days the world is grey and everything is wrong
    And I dont wanna smile coz when I smile
    You might get the wrong impression that I might be moving on
    But Im standing still, and if anything
    Im movin backwards but the hands of time wont change
    I try to rewind
    But life seems on fast forward all the time

    And I dont want the scars to heal
    Coz theyre all that I have left to keep
    I wanna cut them open
    But they keep on closin
    Still my heart it bleeds

    I dont wanna laugh coz its a dark day
    And on dark days theres no laughter and no light to move ahead
    And I dont wanna laugh coz when I laugh
    You might think that thoughts of you have left my head
    But youre still in there, and if anything
    Youre locked inside me always knocking on the door
    I try to run
    But youre chained to me like a prisoner with a gun

    And I dont want the scars to heal
    Coz theyre all that I have left to keep
    Dont wanna let go
    I wanna keep hold
    But you’ve slipped away

    And apart from that I dont want to I just cant pretend that everything is fine
    I cannot snap my fingers like you did and act like youre not missin by my side
    Are you cold, are you careless, have you never ever loved?
    I dont understand, I just dont understand

    I just dont want the scars to heal
    Coz theyre all thats left of you and me
    Im ruined for always
    And I dont want it to change

  4. Least took the word out of my mouth...powerful...

    I got sucked into it as soon as I started to read it, it almost sounds like a song. I love the contrast between the 'inside' and the 'outside', and the imagery of light and dark - and hanging on to pain cause it's all you have. And I love how you're "talking" to the other person...if only we could be that honest more often in life :sad: But you did good!

    Wow I am quite overwhelmed by the positive reactions thank you all so much I didnt think my words could cause this kind of response.. I almost feel proud.. *blushes

    It is sort of a song well not really..I write song lyrics, poetry, sometimes something in between and I suppose this belongs in latter category x
