    A song.
    « on: November 11, 2006, 10:13:04 pm »
    I wrote this a couple of years ago out of frustration with people telling me I was too young, or too pretty, or too talented to be depressed.  I'm not looking for comments; this is just one song I wrote that I never intend to record, but the funny thing about music is that it isn't finished until you share it.  You can't hear the melody, obviously, and I doubt it would help to include the changes, but since I won't record it, this is as shared as it will be, I think.

    ---

    You glance, or look, or stare at me,
    I know what you think you see.
    A pretty girl, a happy girl,
    A life you wish you had.
    But you don't know the things I hide.
    You don't know last night I cried.
    The lonely tears, the frightened tears,
    I couldn't make them stop.

    Don't tell me there's no reason to
    Always feel the way I do
    You're right, there's not, I know there's not
    But knowing doesn't help

    Please don't go telling me I shouldn't feel this way, it's not that simply, so stop!

    I'm not who you think I am.

    *hugs*  I understand.

    "What are you depressed about?"  is another one - I hate it when I'm asked that.  If I knew specifically, I'd change it, or fix it, or learn to cope with it, but it's nothing so easily quantifiable.  "Too young/pretty/lucky/whatever" to be depressed; I don't think there's such a thing.

    Aw Brielles!  Sad songs!

    I'm actually playing this game because I was (and maybe still am) depressed about some things in real life and a friend said it's a good way to get away from your trouble..  And they were right..

    Hey, let's hear it for escapism to get away from our out-of-whack brain chemistry.
