Anna Blue — Silent Scream lyrics

I'm caught up in your expectations
You try to make me live your dream
But I'm causing you so much frustration
And you only want the best for me.

You're wanting me to show more interest
To always keep a big, bright smile
Be that pinky little perfect princess
But I'm not that type of child.

And the storm is rising inside of me
Dontcha feel that our worlds collide?
It's getting harder to breathe
It hurts deep inside.

Just let me be who I am
It's what you really need to understand
And I hope so hard for the pain to go away...
And it's torturing me
But I can't break free
So I cry and cry but just won't get it out
The silent scream.

Tell me why you're putting pressure on me
And every day you cause me harm
That's the reason why I feel so lonely
Even when you hold me in your arms.

Wanna put me in a box of glitter
But I'm just tryna get right out
And now you're feeling so, so bitter
Because I let you down.

And the storm is rising inside of me
Dontcha feel that our worlds collide?
It's getting harder to breathe
It hurts deep inside.

Just let me be who I am
It's what you really need to understand
And I hope so hard for the pain to go away...
And it's torturing me
But I can't break free
So I cry and cry but just won't get it out
The silent scream.

Can't you see how I cry for help?
Cause you should love me just for being myself
I'll drown in an ocean of pain and emotion
If you don't save me right away.

Just let me be who I am
It's what you really need to understand
And I hope so hard for the pain to go away...
And it's torturing me
But I can't break free
So I cry and cry but just won't get it out
The silent scream.
