It's late at night, the world's asleep
And I'm trying not to think
I take some pills 'cause my mind bleeds
I'm thinking what is wrong with me
Because the only thing I know about honesty
Is every lie I told that you believed

I'm afraid to be alone
I'm afraid that one day you'll find out

And you'll be amazed
At the secrets I keep
You'll be amazed
At my mouth full of lies
But I'm too afraid to come clean
'Cause my life's the flame in a house of cards

Now I can't look you in your eyes
Because the guilt is killing me
I try to disconnect my heart again
Just so I can breathe
I wanna be myself again
But I just can't 'cause

I'm afraid to be alone
I'm afraid that one day you'll find out


It's such a shame what I've become
After years of breaking down
My whole life has come undone
'Cause I'm trying to fake it all
And I know that you love someone
But that someone isn't me
Or is this me?


You'll be amazed
You'll be amazed
