I'm fine,
'but I'm coming undone.'
I'm ready,
'but I've lost before I've begun.'
I'm good,
'but I know I'm not strong.'
I'm standing,
'but I don't know how long.'

The words in my head
of a heart near dead
in the silence are clear
and theyíre all I can hear.

Listen to the words
that I donít say,
Ďcause what I say
ainít always gonna be the truth.
Read between the lines.
Read between the fine
print and youíll see
what I hide away.
If you listen to the words
that I donít say.

Iím great,
'but I still want to cry.'
Iím confident,
'but I know thatís a lie.'
Iím happy,
'but Iíll never be free.'
Iím worth it,
'but Iíll never agree.'

The words I canít say
are the ones that just may
save my soul and my life
if you listen to my mind.

Listen to the words
that I donít say,
Ďcause what I say
ainít always gonna be the truth.
Read between the lines.
Read between the fine
print and youíll see
what I hide away.
If you listen to the words
that I donít say.

Listen to me!
Donít ignore me!
Life is hard
And itís before me!
So please just stay
and find a way.

You can see me
You can hear me.
It donít matter
When I canít speak
All the things
I really need to say.

Just listen to the words that I donít say.
