My Love


Welcome To My World

Welcome to my world
Where the pain is so deep inside
It's so obvious that I'm hurt
I can never ever hide

Welcome to my world
Where the walls come falling in
Where I acted out in mischievous behaviors
Obvious that I'm covering myself in sin

Welcome to my world
When you become the family's disgrace
That when you come to say hello
They can hardly look you in your face

Welcome to my world
Where the only thing you're looking for is love
You look in all the wrong places
And get "all of the above"
