"Behind These Hazel Eyes"

Seems just like yesterday
You were a part of me
I used to stand so tall
I used to be so strong
Your arms around me tight
Everything, it felt so right
Unbreakable, like nothin' could go wrong
Now I can't breathe
No, I can't sleep
I'm barely hanging on

Here I am, once again
I'm torn into pieces
Can't deny it, can't pretend
Just thought you were the one
Broken up, deep inside
But you won't get to see the tears I cry
Behind these hazel eyes

I told you everything
Opened up and let you in
You made me feel alright
For once in my life
Now all that's left of me
Is what I pretend to be
Sewn together, but so broken up inside
'Cause I can't breathe
No, I can't sleep
I'm barely hangin' on

Here I am, once again
I'm torn into pieces
Can't deny it, can't pretend
Just thought you were the one
Broken up, deep inside
But you won't get to see the tears I cry
Behind these hazel eyes

Swallow me then spittin' me out
For hating you, I blame myself
Seeing you it kills me now
No, I don't cry on the other side
Anymore... Anymore

Here I am, once again
I'm torn into pieces
Can't deny it, can't pretend
Just thought you were the one
Broken up, deep inside
But you won't get to see the tears I cry
Behind these hazel eyes

Here I am, once again
I'm torn into pieces
Can't deny it, can't pretend
Just thought you were the one
Broken up, deep inside
But you won't get to see the tears I cry
Behind these hazel eyes

    It sounds like a guy dumped her for another girl. And she was close to perfect with him by her side because she felt he was the one but he wasn't and he left her for another girl which tormented her mentally, and of course inside of her. Well, most girls wouldn't let the guy they love see them cry. I suppose that's what she meant and besides in reality, guys really are blind. They can't see the tears shed by a girl. And also, who wouldn't cry when they see their ex-es? Especially when that ex was the one she felt was the destined one and loved him like nobody's business only to be betrayed in the end! You know when you allow someone to love you, you're allowing that person to break your heart. And in some rare cases, the guy will love her till eternity!
