Malaya Mai - The Quiet One

You've been walking through life by yourself
You figure why should you tell anyone else
Don't want to bring others into your pain
'Cause people look down on those who complain

Come sit next to me
I can see that you're hurting inside
I'm all ears
I won't judge the way that you live your life

You're not alone
I can see the tears in your eyes
Let it all out
It's not good to keep it (all inside)

Let it all out
Release it
Thoughts are so heavy
Make yourself lighter

Let it all out
Believe me
Floating on air
You'll feel so much brighter

Don't compare yourself to anyone else
Your feelings matter, good as anyone's hell
And if they make you feel smaller than you are
Just keep your head up, time will heal your scars

Come sit next to me
I can see that you're hurting inside
I'm all ears
I won't judge the way that you live your life

You're not alone
I can see the tears in your eyes
Let it all out
It's not good to keep it (all inside)

Let it all out
Release it
Thoughts are so heavy
Make yourself lighter

Let it all out
Believe me
Floating on air
You'll feel so much brighter

Thank you for The Quiet One comments!

Dear songwritindrumfreak,

Thank you so much for your constructive comments. They are greatly appreciated! I agree that the song is unfinished, and although I don't want to take your lyrics, I do understand where you are coming from and your comments will surely be on my mind when I finally finish the song.

Regards,
Malaya

Thank you for The Quiet One comments!

Hi, again, Shelly!

Every time I sing this song I get this lump in my throat. Maybe because I'm familiar with how it feels not to have anybody to lean on when you're in pain. Thank you so much for your positive comments. I appreciate the time you took to make them. :)

Regards,
Malaya

More

It did leave me wanting more, but What can I say i liked it.

Maybe you'd like to add like a verse or something like:

I'm always here
A shoulder to cry on
A person to hold you when you're alone
Your faults are not your own

Maybe something that reassures the receiver of the intentions of the song. Just my take though.

The quiet one

I found another one of yours,just by picking the name.It's good to see someones heart,barely hidden but pure and caring.I like how you try to comfort and the compassion you have for the one who is hurting.Your right,:your as good as anyones hell: is an excellent line and I think it should be repeated in this song.Just my opinion and appreciation,Great song.Shelly R.W.

Thank you, Lolly!

I definitely wanted this to touch the hearts of people who felt like they needed to confide in someone out of desperation but felt like there was nobody they could trust or be open to. Thank you so much for your positive comments!

Thank you, mckennadev!

That's exactly what I was going for! Thanks for the feedback...it's good to know that people are getting what I'm trying to do!

Thank you, antwon549!

Thank you for your honest opinion. I will definitely work on it. A lot of of my songs are works in progress (just verses and bridges) and still definitely need a climactic verse and or a simple hook. :)
