Frame I Couldn’t Fit

i see colors and different hues

you tell me it’s black and white

i must be confused

you insist you’re right

would i feel like this if that was true

you laid out all of the rules

and i tried desperately

to follow them too

i never understood

why you would want what you do

you built a frame i could not fit

i never even asked for it

and we saw things in a

different light, a different light

you tore me into bits

with every single flaw you picked

i made sure i was always

out of sight, out of sight

and away from the frame i couldn’t fit

when i paint, i let it splatter

you look at the canvas

say i could’ve done better

take me around and around

who said i liked your carousel

criticize me for my mess

always making me feel worthless

thought i was safe and sound

how could you be so insensible

you built a frame i could not fit

i felt like i’d never make it

you made sure to block any

ray of light, ray of light

i was so close to letting go

the pain just seemed to grow

but you still made me

hold on tight, hold on tight

to the frame, the frame i couldn’t fit

i’ve unmasked the face

that made you so ashamed

tell me why am i so hard to accept

you know i cannot change

just to fit your frame

it would help if you rid of your neglect

you built a frame i could not fit

i’m sorry for being like this

i’m sorry for not being what you

thought was right, thought was right

the fire that once was lit

disappeared after one hit

it’ll be so hard to

to reignite, reignite

ever again

because of the frame

the frame i couldn’t fit
