Trying to pretend it's perfect
Wish that I could run away and hide
In someone else's life
Feel like I'm 5 and helpless
Like a child left alone
Crying through the night

And when you yell at me
I get scared of you
All I want is to be close to you
I wish I could tell you the way I feel
But I can't break through

I don't wanna talk about it
I don't say another word
I've already said too much
Cause you just never seem to get it
Do you even care how much it hurts?
To hate the one you love
And I'm just waiting for the day
When I, when I don't have to
Dig up through the landmines

So afraid if I say the wrong thing
That you're gonna blow up at me
Till I crumble to the ground
Finally I'm getting stronger
And if I have to walk away,
I will, And I won't turn around

If you saw my tears,
Would you look away?
Hold me close?
Would you beg to stay?
If I fell apart,
And let you see inside?
Would you tell me it's alright?

I don't wanna talk about it
I don't say another word
I've already said too much
Cause you just never seem to get it
Do you even care how much it hurts?
To hate the one you love
And I'm just waiting for the day
When I, I don't have to
Dig up through the landmines

How can I be so conflicted?
Your the light and the
Darkness in my heart
You'll always have a place inside it
How can loving you be so hard?
Just want it to be ok
Someday, Someday...

I don't wanna talk about it
I don't say another word
I've already said too much
Cause you just never seem to get it
Do you even care how much it hurts?
To hate the one you love
And I'm just waiting for the day
When I, can finally leave
All this hurt behind
So I don't have to dig up
Through the landmines
I don't have to dig up
Through the landmines

Dig up through the landmines
