I always cared so much,
I gave all that I had.
Did everything I could,
To help the ones I loved.

But it was all too much,
I couldn't take it all.
So much pain and sorrow,
all of the doubt and fear.

I neglected myself,
trying to help them all.
But I was hurting too,
with no one to help me.

They were all too busy,
too busy to notice.
All of the sadness I felt,
that I was suffering.

Now my will is slipping,
I am so tired inside.
Tired of being alone,
tired of feeling this pain.

I don't want to be here,
I wish I could just go.
But I can't leave here yet,
not while they still need me.

You only truly lose when winning becomes more important than playing.
