last sentiment it’s hard to say that i miss you its hard to say from a porch in m night in my mind we’re on our way through the misuse of the core inside your self from where you hold yourself inside it’s hard to say that i’m normal it’s hard to say that i get what I want and I do I just don’t look in to my past i see the tear on your mask i only see the face on your mask and I remember your last sentiment it came out of the corner of your eyes you tried hard not to let them fall into a hole inside yourself from where you hold yourself inside
