– let me frown –

When I’m

down, I’m down – a frown is a frown, a

technicolor blockbuster with no sound. So

don’t stand in my way…

even if you mean well. When I’m

ill, I’m ill – a jagged little pill, a

disappointing flop of what could’ve been a thrill. So

don’t stand in my way…

with all your aid and help.

~

Let me frown, let me break…

the way that I’m used to.

Let me sob, let me shake…

or perhaps not even move.

Other people are allowed to fall apart,

except for me and my half-hearted heart,

but I’ll frown, and I’ll break,

the way that I’m used to.
