I try and try and try again
Will it stop or ever end?
I do this and do that but don't succeed
When my only wish is just to be freed
I suffer and suffer and want to die
I am always asking myself when and why
What is wrong with me I really don't know
Heaven or hell is where I wanna go
I really don't want to live this way
But to be here for my children, this is the price I'm willing to pay
To have to live this way, doesn't leave a good impression
But this is me and I live with this depression
