Lock and Key

All alone on the inside
Where do I belong?
These feelings overwhelm me
Why does it hurt so much?
To feel like the one left out
Like the one who's second best
Who am I to you?
Do I even make the cut?
Or am I the understudy,
To fill in your empty spaces
When you get tired of the regular faces
And I can move to the front
Instead of following behind
And I can be part of the conversation
Instead of staying in the dark
Until you get bored again
Pushing me away
To be with the ones who seem so much better
And I'll keep my unspoken feelings
Under lock and key
They'll be with me forever
Because that's how it's meant to be.
