Closed Doors

I'm a warm girl in a cold city

I cried myself to sleep at those deadly nights

How I wish one day they will end

Because it hurts every time I think about it.

Living in fear, day in and day out,

"Leave me alone," I would just shout

Those nightmares always followed me until the end

Another piece of me just broke away.

A day, a month, a year, or so

Living in different every day

I repeat like a fool, I can't find a way

I can't find a way through these “closed doors”

Pretending to be fine and smiling since the beginning

Wished if they could understand

I will bear my tears until the end of time

And forget these memories which will eventually fade away.

Could never find a way through these “closed doors”

Everything in my mind was worn out and old

If this is a nightmare please let me wake up away

Through these “closed doors” where I could never find my way
