Two Ways

You want us as you think
That normal people ought to be
And every time, you overlook
What might be there to see

We all want to feel we’re loved
No more you than me
And every time you turn away
I wish that you would see


I’m sick of trying
I’m sick of failing
I’m sick of feeling laughter
And more afraid I’ll hear it to my face
I’m tired of caring
I’m tired of being
I’m done playing my poorly acted part
Let someone else be a human being
Let someone else do the whole damn thing
They’ll do it better from the start
