It must be
The child in me
That tests people like I do
But if you could see
What happened to me
Then you’d be wary of people too
Every time I make you laugh another part of me dies inside.
For you can never be the one to whom I can confide.
It’s my own fault, I know too well, as I should not try to pretend.
But if you could see past my facade, you’d make a cracking friend.
