It's not the best, but whatever.
Oh, and you can go to myspace.com/annawelter if you want to hear it.

I was alone
inside my room,
with the walls
all silent blue,
and the shadows from the curtains
were nailed against the wall.

There's always hope
that I am waking,
but we know
hope can be faker
than the fruit you have on your table
next to the plastic flowers.

Oh, oh, I see
my eyes are burned open
Oh, oh, I know
My mind is torn open.
Open, open...

I wasn't hurt,
just a bit distracted
from the truth
I knew, I knew,
that I used to know long ago,
but I forgot with time.
Another note
wrote onto paper,
get a tune
make it catchier,
you can't expect the best from you
if you are full of doubt.

Oh, oh, I see
my eyes are torn open
Oh, oh, I know
my mind is burned open.
Open, open...

Wow, this is really good (especially from someone as young as you are). Lyrically it's very inspiring, especially the end of the second verse "you can't expect the best from you / if you are full of doubt."

Anywho, I loved the actual recording (normally when I crit lyrics I put it to my own tune, but this helped a lot). My only criticism about the song in general is that in certain points you seem to rush the words a bit. ("there's always hope", et al.). Aside from that I loved it, keep up the good work.
