lyrics

He stalks down halls
Punches walls instead of faces
Hides in bathroom stalls when the tears come
He knows the drill
Secrets spill like a hand of aces
If you lose your will and don’t stay numb.

It’s hard to be himself
So he keeps his dreams up on the shelf
Next to pictures of friends he’s lost
And all the damage that they’ve cost
Deep inside, he just can’t believe

Chorus:
Someday
Tears will dry and scars will fade
Holes in walls will be filled in
He’ll see what he wants is not a sin
But this closed off heart that others made
Needs time to open up
Someday

She sits and stares
Meets the glares of judging eyes
She’ll never let them see her cry
She stands her ground, tells no lies
Looks around
Won’t give no matter how they try

She stays true to herself
Knowing every day they’ll give her hell
And she wonders if it’s worth it
Wonders if she’ll ever find her fit.
Deep inside, she wants to believe

Chorus:
Someday
Tears will dry and scars will fade
Cliques in halls will be forgotten
She’ll see who she is is not a sin
But this closed off heart that others made
Needs time to open up
Someday

Bridge?:
They feel knotted-up and useless, helpless and worthless
Wishing and hoping, praying for a change
‘Cause nothing is different,
No one listens
Everything just stays the same
Someday comes and someday goes and who can ever really know
What they think and feel inside when no-one stops to wonders why
So alone, so afraid, losing hope, losing faith
They bleed, they plead, they mourn, they grieve,
And yet somehow they still believe…


Someday
Tears will dry and scars will fade
They’ll see that who they are is not a sin
A new life waiting to begin
These closed off hearts that others made
Will have time to open up
Time to open up
Time to open up
Someday
