lyrics

You asked me, to wear my jewels
And forget about our fight,
You told me, to put on some make-up
And try hiding the storm again,
You said, I should dress up for you
And act naturally,
You believe it's easy, just to do my hair
And pretend I'm alright 

CHORUS:
Now am I, supposed to be,
Sitting and smiling...
When all I want, is cry
In a corner of my room,
That's what you, expect of me,
When everyone's staring... at me
And all I want, is cry
In a corner of my room. 

BRIDGE:
In a corner of my room,

The darkest corner of my room,

In a corner of my room,

The darkest corner, darkest corner of my room.

[INSTRUMENTAL]

You taught me, how to act,
Like a mouse, in a trap 
You embraced all my fears
For you found, weapon and victim 

CHORUS:
Now am I, supposed to be,
Sitting and smiling... yeah yeah
When all I want, is cry
In a corner of my room,
That's what you, expect of me,
When everyone's staring... at me
And all I want, is cry
In a corner of my room.

[INSTRUMENTAL]

CODA:
Now I'll walk away!
I will walk away!
I will walk away!
I, I, I, I will walk away!
I will walk away!
I will walk away!
I will walk away!
I will walk away from you, and my fears, and all my troubles
Well I will walk away!
I gotta walk away!
I will walk away yeah, walk away!
I will walk away!
I gotta walk away...
I, I gotta walk away from you...
I will walk, walk, walk away yeah...
Now is my time... My time.
Walk away!
I'll hoot and bang the drums and dance
I'll hoot and bang the drums and dance... haha!
