Have you ever felt alone and out of place, even in the presence of friends? Like you couldn't be honest about your feelings because you feel like people would simply tell you to 'Stop complaining'? I know i have...


Sometimes I feel like Im talking to thin air
Even with my friends around it seems like nobody really cares
Sometimes is pretty easy to notice
When somebody actually pays attention
Or when somebody really didn’t listen

If I yelled out loud
who would really hear me?
Or would total silence reply back coldy?
The water’s getting higher
Im gasping for air
Does nobody care?
Does anybody care about the true feelings in me?

I wish life was like it’s on TV
30 minute sitcom
Plot, problem and solution
No I don’t really wish that on anyone
That life sounds boring…
I guess im cool with the ups and downs
Because they make me feel alive!

If I could point you out of a faceless crowd
(If I yelled out loud, who would really hear me?)
Would my voice be loud?
Would you be proud of the person ive become?
(Or would total silence reply back coldly?)
Or turn away with a terrible shun
(The water’s getting higher, im gasping for air)
What you want from me isnt quite clear
(Does nobody care?)
Does anybody care about the true feelings in me?
