Shade of Melancholy

lyrics

There's a deep blue melancholy
Hiding inside my head
The weight of the world's upon me
But I just smile instead
What am I doing?
Crying in the night
Can I tell the world
How I feel inside?

Sing a song
Write a word
Everything is gonna be alright

We laugh at all the folly
'Cause folly disguises pain
I don't want to tell the story
But it's screaming inside my brain
The doctor gives me pills to keep me happy
But I still cry in the night
Can I tell the world
How I feel inside?

Sing a song
Write a word
Everything is gonna be alright
