Description

I wrote this song when I was in my pensive mood. All my life I've always been someone who's trying every possible way to cover up her real emotions. And as I grow older, I realized that not only myself, but many other people around me are trying to do the same thing. It's hard to see the tears under the smiles, the struggle under the victory, and the "I'm not fine" under "I'm okay". We always think that showing our real emotions is a weakness, when it's supposed to be the other way around. I decided to write this song to tell people that it's okay not to be okay, that it's a human thing to be upset, to be negative. Sadness can destroy people from the inside. So instead of keeping it all to yourself, you should be more open, more sharing to others - A lesson that I, a 18 years old girl, am still trying to learn. Lyrics: My momma used to tell me not to cry But our place was full of cigarettes and whiskey wine I never could have guessed what’s on her mind But I never asked her why And I have grown up like a little child Looking at the playground from the outside The gate is opened, no one’s passing by But I won’t cross the line Oh I feel tired So tired Would it be okay to show? All the feelings no one knows And I feel tired So tired Putting up another show I could never let it go All the pretty girls are up in line Try to be the beauty queen of human kind But deep down in the eyes I see them cry Behind those pretty smiles Why do you hold on to the night? The music is beginning to die When the sun falls my heart starts to rise And I know I’m gonna be alright, I’m gonna be alright But I feel tired So tired Would it be okay to show? All the feelings no one knows And I feel tired So tired Putting up another show I could never let it go Like a mask I borrow To hide my deepest sorrow Does anybody love me? I don’t even know Like a broken arrow That never knows where it goes But if I say I love you, trust me, I mean so But I feel tired So tired Would it be okay to show? All the feelings no one knows And I feel tired So tired Putting up another show I could never let it go Round and round I go, round and round I go (x3) Written, produced and performed by: Janey Quinn All rights reserved.
