Surrounded by people

Still feel alone

A city full of life

But I can't feel the love

Ironic, isn't it

How crowded places feel the loneliest

How cities brimming with light

Still feel darkest

How I'm surrounded by loving people

But I can't seem to completely open up

People that would probably drop everything to help lift me up

But I shut them out

I don't know what I'm afraid of

I don't know what I'm running away from
