Black Orchid
by Blue October



have you ever been so lonely,
there's no one there to hold?
just pull me in or disown me,
and then climb inside.
my arms are open wide.
have a look inside.

it is not that i am scared to learn,
just why i'm empty inside.
just hold my hand to show some concern,
if i live or die.
my eyes are open wide,
help me look inside.

i hear the water drip from the faucet,
it's sweetly falling in tune.
i'm gently closing the closet.
and i fall to the floor,
and crawl to my room.
the thought of ending it soon...
just let me sleep in my room.

hear me cry! cry! cry!
i hear a knock at the front door.
don't come in!
i try to look at you
but i can't stop shaking.
leave me alone. just go away.
mother i'm so scared,
i'm so scared.

empty bed but all of my sheets are gone,
they're wrapped around me and you.
all is quiet but the drop of my gun.
i want to belong... to someone...
but maybe life's not for everyone
