The World turns its back

Another lost one from 2008.

The World Turns its back

THE WORLD TURNS IT BACK ON YOU

WHAT DO YOU DO EVERY ONE LEAVES YOU ALONE

WHOS STAYS BY YOUR SIDE

WHO WANTS TO LEND A HELPING HAND

WHO SAYS ITS OKAY

WHEN THE WORLD JUST TURNA AND WALKS AWAY

WHO SAYS EVERYTHINGS GONNA BE OKAY

WHOS THE ONE WHO STANDS BY YOU FOREVER

WHO CAOULD YOU NOT BEAR TO SEE LEAVE

WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF THEY DID

WOULD YOU CRY

WOULD YOUR WORLD END

WOULD YOU TELL THEM HOW MUCH THEY MEAN TO YOU

WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF THEY TOLD YOU

THAT THEY JUST DON’T KNOW YOU

ANYMORE

WOULD COULD YOU BE STRONG

IF THEY LEFT YOU LYING IN THE DIRT

WHEN THEY LEFT WHAT WOULD BE LEFT

WOULD YOU BE AN EMPTY SHELL

OR WOULD YOU BECOME SOMEONE NEW

SOMEONE BETTER

SOMEONE STRONGER

SOMEONE DARKER

SOMEONE BRIGHTER

SOMEONE WEAKER

OR SOMETHING ALTOGETHER DIFFERENT

DO YOU EVEN KNOW

COULD YOU EVEN GUESS UNTIL IT HAPPENS

WOULD YOU BECOME NOTHING MORE

THAN A SHADOW OF A PERSON

A SHADOW OF WHAT ONCE WAS WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN

A MOCKERY OF LIFE

A MOCKERY OF A PERSON

WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF EVERYONE LEFT

WOULD YOU CRY WOULD YOU SREAM GOODBYE

WOULD EVERYTHING BE ALL RIGHT

WOULD YOU COULD YOU PRETEND EVRYTHING WAS ALRIGHT

OR WOULD YOU TEL PEOPLE THAT YOU WERE DEAD INSIDE

AND THE ONLY THING THAT COULD BRING YOU BACK TO LIFE AGAIN WOULD BE THE ONE PERSON WHO YOU NEVER HOPE TO SEE AGAIN

WHAT WOULD THEY DO WOULD THEY SAVE YOU OR DENY YOU

MAYBE WELL SEE WHO THIS ONE PERSON IS

MEYBE THEY’LL SAVE YOU

OR MAYBE THEY’LL DENY YOU EVEN THIS

ONE SIMPLE REQUEST THIS ONE PLEA FOR LIFE
