Lyrics: 

There's a lot to take in
That's hard to let go
The words on my tongue
All metled like snow

And I'm not doing fine
I hope that you can tell
By the way that I look
And how I don't yell

And I
Still keep it all inside
I'm restless for now
But I still haven't cried

I distance myself
From those who still care
I know that I'm selfish
And this doesn't seem fair

Afraid to be a burden
To bother someone else
I keep hiding in my room
So I don't hurt myself

And I
Still keep it all inside
I'm restless for now
But I still haven't cried

And I
I still feel left behind
I'm slowly losing friends
But I still haven't cried

Yeah, I still haven't cried

Wow, I really feel for the narrative voice of this song (I never assume it's the writer's own voice unless indicated!) because of the sense of isolation and loss that comes through loud and clear in the lyric.

The narrator's pain really comes through in this. A well structured, concise, and - unfortunately - highly relatable scenario.
Good work.
