A penny for my thoughts - lyrics- - February 17th 2012, 11:44 PM

I knew I would never be perfect.
I knew it, and I never asked why.
But some how, I still prayed to be someone
Send my pleads up towards the sky.
But hey, I'm just that girl
You know, the one who will never make it.
Or at least, that's what they all say.
How much screaming does it have to take to--

just break the silence?
To make my words count?
A penny for my thoughts
I guess everyone's broke now.
I really never knew
I really never knew that silence could scream this loud.

I always wish I was one of them.
Tons of friends, or ones I hardly knew.
I wish I could smile the day away
I bet nobody knew the ones I have are fake.
But hey, I'm just that girl
You know, the one who will never make it.
Valentines day, he doesn't even bring her flowers.
I really don't think I could get much louder
and how can I--

just break the silence?
To make my words count?
A penny for my thoughts
I guess everyone's broke now.
I really never knew
I really never knew that silence could scream this loud.

If I could just have one last word
I always wonder if it's meaning would be heard?
And at my funeral, don't cry
Because it's not really my death
Because in everybody's eyes
In the first place I was never alive...

I wish I could break the silence
Just to make my words count.
A penny for my thoughts?
I'll offer you a dollar
because it'll be enough to last forever and ever.
And you'd still have ninty nine left over--
I really never knew how
I really never knew that silence could scream this loud.


Just a girl with an angel above, just a girl with an angel to love. My angel grew wings and she did dare to fly. But I promise my angel, it's only good night but never good-bye. My angel, my angel in heaven above. My angel, my darling, you'll always have my love. Rest in peace, my sweet darling, it's only temporary that we part. My angel, my angel, how you still do steal my heart </3

This is fantastic. I could definitely imagine this being on the radio one day. Keep up the great work!


wanderlust consumed her;
foreign hearts & exotic minds compelled her.
she had a gypsy soul
and a vibrant heart for the unknown.

Thanks everyone! I haven't written something like this in a while, so I'm a bit rusty

Thank you I try, to be honest. I've been writing like this since I was 10, and I just hope to get better as the years pass.
