Chorus (heavy distortion)...

     I just needed someone to talk to but you were just too busy with yourself.
     You were never there for me to express how I felt, I just pushed it down.
     But now I'm older and I feel like I should let this anger fade.
     But it seems the surface I am scratching is the bed that I have made.

View Just Lyrics...

I try to breathe
Memories overtaking me
I try to face them but
The thought is too
Much to conceive

I only know that I can change
Everything else just stays the same
So now I step out of the darkness
That my life became 'cause

I just needed someone to talk to
You were just too busy with yourself
You were never there for me to
Express how I felt
I just stuffed it down
Now I'm older and I feel like
I could let some of this anger fade
But it seems the surface
I am scratching
Is the bed that I have made

So where were you
When all this I was going through
You never took the time to ask me
Just what you could do
