i dust the house
i chase that mouse
i set things right to make it look nice
i spread out books so you might think me wise
i try and take all the virtues..done with all vice
i do it all with a smile..just for that twinkle in your eyes..
i wash the dishes
i fold the clothes
i give up my wishes
i fight my hopes
i hide rough truths..i speak sugar coated lies
i do it all with a smile just for that twinkle in your eyes..
everyday i go through the ordeal
not once making it a big deal
you don't care about what i did..
only about what i did not
i feel like screaming for i am so agitated
but all i can do is cry myself to sleep..gosh im so frustrated
you snap at me all through the day, all the time
yes i am now grown but so what if i still love to calculate time with that wind chime
it hurts when you call me useless
i open my mouth but i am helpless
it hurts when you chide me for anything and everything
i cry all night..i wish to fly..oh so high..gimme some air..gimme some wings
i want to go far away
far from everybody..
want to be with nobody
for i feel sad
and i get mad
when i think ..that whatever i do ..
is never ever going to be enough for you ..
