Burden

Her tear stained eyes
He doesn’t know she’s crying
Her hurting heart
He just goes on laughing
Every day, he takes away a part of her
And every day, she dies a little more
 
He doesn’t see she desperately wants him to know
That his life is headed toward a twisted darker road
 
And now she’s angry, now she’s mad
He’s got the life she never had
Her burden, job, maturity
While he gets everything for free
But when will she understand
He’s never gonna be a man
 
She tried it once
He took her guard down easily
She tried again
He said "it’s right now; don’t you see?"
And every day, she edges back toward the door
But every time, he tries to take a little more
 
He doesn’t see she desperately wants to let go
Now after all she wants back on the higher road
 
And now she’s angry, now she’s mad
He’s got the life she never had
Her burden, job, maturity
While he gets everything for free
But when will she understand
He’s never gonna be a man
 
Her soul is aching for his change inside but
He just keeps on taking til her heart has died and
Now they are a broken memory from ages past
And nothing there could ever last, they could never last
 
He doesn’t see…
She’s desperately…
 
He doesn’t see her blood is pouring, body aching
She’s desperately clinging to the smile she’s faking
 
And now she’s broken, now she’s sad
He took the joy that she once had
Kindness, care, generosity
He took it and left her to bleed
Still she cannot understand
He’s never gonna be a man
