Whatever Happened to You?

The never-ending melody played on

On and on and on never ceasing to whisper its secrets

Drawn to the tune, your voice resounds over it all

Pain, despair, melancholy merge as soft notes

But never forget the song you sang that day

 

Like a house of cards your voice trembles to remain strong

Bashed and trashed by the words of others

You collapse under the weight—

The burden of believing in haters

Cut off in isolation, your lonely voice refuses to sing

 

Whatever happened to you?

Whatever happened to you?

Whatever happened to your laughs?

Your smile?

Your backwards silliness that was never quite understood?

Whatever happened to you?

Whatever happened to you?

You will be missed

 

 

 

Don’t forget the people waiting for you

Take the stage as you once did

Don’t you dare back down

Letting harsh words tear into you

Unify your discordant melody

Remember your reason for singing

 

Like a house of bricks,

Your voice returns stronger than ever

Guided by these seeking what you sought—a voice

 

Whatever happened to you?

Whatever happened to you?

Whatever happened to your laughs?

Your smile?

Your backwards silliness that was never quite understood?

Whatever happened to you?

Whatever happened to you?

You have been found
