Wishful Thinking

Heart exposed and I know that Iím in trouble,
You tear my world down, Iím stuck in all the rubble.
I act calm, I act like nothing is wrong,
and youíre oblivious to the fact that Iíve been hurting all along.

I mean itís nothing,
Really baby itís nothing. I swear.
I just want you to understand me or somethingÖand care.
Shit, wishful thinking never fixed our damn problems,
But Iím scared that talking it out would cause more drama rather than solve them.

And so Iíd rather stay silent than speak up and cause another fight,
And keep praying that one day youíll start to treat me right.
And see me for more than someone who is smart,
I want you to feel my soul.
I want you to have my heart.
