I paint my nails black, cuz it fits my mood
I'm tired of lookin' around for something to prove
You don't know how it feels inside my skin
But neither do I, because I numb the feeling
Take it away, all of my pain
I gotta bottle I need to finish
Take it away, take it from me
Cuz if you don't, I might drown in it

And I keep tellin' ma, tellin' ma, tellin' myself
That my bad luck's gonna go away
And I keep tryin' and tryin' and try, try to win
But I'm losing every day
I wanna get up and fight, but I don't have the time
I'm too busy feelin' sorry for me
When it looks like the clouds are gone
I wake up, it was just a dream, it was just a dream
It was just a dream, it was all a dream

I walk around, cold to the warmth of life
I see ya tryin' to talk, but I'm deaf to lies
Right, I believe in promises of tomorrow
If I don't make it there, know that I'm that sorry, though
Take it away, take it from me
Cuz I really wanna believe
After the rain, someone'll say
There's really more for me

I keep tellin' ma, tellin' ma, tellin' myself
That my bad luck's gonna go away
And I keep tryin' and tryin' and try, try to win
But I'm losing every day
I wanna get up and fight, but I don't have the time
I'm too busy feelin' sorry for me
When it looks like the clouds are gone
I wake up, it was just a...

See, I've been through Hell and I am still yet to come back
There is no conductor to get this on track
I have dreams of freedom from the circumstance I'm in
If it's in His plans for me, then I will win
I'll just dream til' then

I keep tellin' ma, tellin' ma, tellin' myself
That my bad luck's gonna go away
And I keep tryin' and tryin' and try, try to win
But I'm losing every day
I wanna get up and fight, but I don't have the time
I'm too busy feelin' sorry for me
When it looks like the clouds are gone
I wake up, it was just a dream, it was just a dream
It was just a dream, it was all a dream
It was just a dream
