can you see my pain,
or are you so vain?
i hate being the brunt of your discourse
will you stop the discord and distort?
let me be me
not what you see
en mi corazon, i hurt
en mi corazon, i burn
stop the slander, stop the pain
get away from my windowpane
a stone is lodged in my windpipe
thrown by the ones who gripe
i see it in your eyes
please don't smile (don't lie)
if you want, i shall drop another few degrees
i shall lose my heart, soul and mind which equals me
let me find myself
stop giving me hell
i've had enough of your games
enough of courting your pain
