People can suprise you

I finally did what was needed
Finally took that baby step
And my parents finally know now
About the secret that I kept

I always thought about it
Figured it would be so far away
That this day would never come
And id keep pushing it away

But i guess people can surprise you
And love you for who you are
And how the person deep inside
Can stop hiding behind the bars

My mind always thought the worst
Afraid they won’t accept who I am
And I would feel so alone then
That they will never understand

I guess that shows you to never
Judge the people that you know
Because they can always have
Another side of them to show

But i guess people can surprise you
And love you for who you are
And how the person deep inside
Can stop hiding behind the bars

I never thought I would feel so free
In this world so soon
I was always afraid that I would be
Like the man on the moon

Something you keep trying to grab
But can only only look from afar
Like trying to make a wish and then
Trying to catch a falling star

But i guess people can surprise you
And love you for who you are
And how the person deep inside
Can stop hiding behind the bars

You put my mind at Ease

My world could come crashing down
No future left to live
But somehow you give me everything
That you could ever give

My life could feel so empty
Yet you find something there
Nothing that I can see in me
Like you pull it from nowhere

You hold me together
And help keep me sane
Somehow you keep me grounded
And protect me from all the pain

My body could be trembling
And yet you keep it still
You show the peace to me
What’s hiding behind the hill

I can feel so confused
Don’t know where to go
There you are to remind me
About what I should know

You hold me together
You help keep me sane
Somehow you keep me grounded
And protect me from all the pain

My heart can be hurting
But you find a way to heal
My mind can be racing
But you help get behind the wheel

You don’t know what you do to me
But you help to pass the days
I cannot put my finger on it
How you help in so many ways

How do you hold me together
How do you keep me sane
Somehow you keep me grounded
And protect me from all the pain

The role not taken

Things are always complicated
When living the life I’m in
Playing the role I’ve chosen
And the person hiding within

It’s hard to keep them separate
When they are practically the same
But I know down deep in side
That I’m the only one to blame

My fear and insecurities are
What’s keeping me from letting go
Need to stop worrying about it all
And who in the world will know

I’m tired of keeping a straight face
While inside the mask is turned
I need to stop living the lie
To see the role I have yearned

Be who you were meant to be

Why does it feel like sometimes
The life we live is not our own
Like we are not our own masters
we’re like a slave to our home

We always have this saying
Be who ever you want to be
why does it feel like sometimes
We hold back from what you see

It’s like we are never truly free
Like there’s a part we have to play
Always worried about how society feels
And less about how I want to live today

I know we shouldn’t feel this way
But it’s my burden that I bare
To care less about my own self
And more worried if they care

Tempted to look ahead

Always thought I would never find it
That one person to make me change
Who would send me to places
Where my heart would feel so strange

Where the hell did you come from
Where the hell have you been
so many times in this life of mine
I could have used you way back then

We only met a few weeks ago
But by Monday I knew you like a book
I was hoping I would be in each chapter
At the end I was tempted to look

I’m ready to skim the pages
life’s script I’m ready to view
I’m hoping there’s more between us
hope there’s more to me and you

The Eye of the Beholder

It seems to me that everyone
Has a part they’d like to hide
But it’s this part that makes us true
To the person we are inside

We cannot pick and choose
Who it is we want to be
We gotta accept every piece of us
Even the flaws we’re afraid to see

Sometimes the piece you try to hide
Is what someone has been looking for
So open yourself up to the world
And see what life has in store

It’s time for you to be yourself
No more hiding behind your flaws
The world could be so different
If you weren’t so quick to withdraw

So put yourself out there
You might be suprised with what you’d find
You could find the only enemy
Is your own state of mind

 

Symphony

We each have our own separate songs
Lyrics reflecting the life that we’ve been living
But some stories might sound a little empty
If we don’t take a moment to sit and listen

So many times we may go through life
Listening to the sounds our heart plays
But if we listen to people all around us
There’s so much to the story we didn’t say

I was alone, my voice was just my own
But now my life it feels like a symphony
Who knew love could bring music to these ears
There’s so much more to life I couldn’t see
Cause now i’m living oh i’m living
Living life like it’s a symphony

Cause every person that you come across
Plays another tune in your heart
But if you blend it all together
It becomes your favorite work of art

Separate we might sound like noise
But together we speak in harmony
And we have a way of bringing out
Each other’s best qualities

I was alone, my voice was just my own
But now my life it feels like a symphony
Who knew love could bring music to these ears
There’s so much more to life I couldn’t see
Cause now i’m living oh i’m living
Living life like it’s a symphony

Now i’m starting to pick up on things
Seeing everything in a different light
How everyone i’ve come across in my life
Was the reason my life turned out right

For so long I was barely listening
Only hearing the song playing inside
But now my ears have tuned into
All the reasons why

I was alone, my voice was just my own
But now my life it feels like a symphony
Who knew love could bring music to these ears
There’s so much more to life I couldn’t see
Cause now i’m living oh i’m living
Living life like it’s a symphony

Life on the Verge of Existing!

Happily Ever After

Another day, Another castle
Another cell I can’t escape from
Another dream I wish would come true
Is my hero ever gonna come?

We all know the story
We’ve grew up on this tale
A happily ever after
Is the story we know so well

But happily ever afters
Aren’t always what they seem
Sometimes life’s happiest endings are when
We learn how to break free

Sometimes our own prisons
Are the one’s we’ve created ourselves
And we think our only savior
Is the only one willing to help

But why must we wait
For our own white knight
When there’s a hero inside each of us
If we aren’t afraid to stand up and fight

Cause happily ever afters
Aren’t always what they seem
Sometimes life’s happiest endings are when
We learn how to break free

Sometimes we become so blinded
When we keep wishing upon a star
Maybe our happily ever after
Was never that far

What if the hero you were looking for
Was closer then you realized
And the only dragon to be slain
Was the one hiding deep inside

Cause happily ever afters
Aren’t always what they seem
Sometimes life’s happiest endings
Are when we learn how to break free
By ourselves

Struck by Lady Luck

Another day living on easy street
I guess i’ve got my lucky charms
But my whole life changed that day
When you came into my arms

I’ve always enjoyed this life I lived
Living In the laps of luxury
Till you shown me the other side
How to find happiness in poverty

I’ve always been struck by lady luck
But now i’ve tasted the other side
And i’d rather give it all away
Then have a chance to tell you goodbye
Then have a chance to tell you goodbye

Cause what’s the point of having it all
What’s the point of making it rich
When letting go of the one you wanted
Is leaving a life that could be enriched

When you’re living the fancy life
Everything comes on a silver platter
You might get everything youve ever wanted
But never the things that matter

Cause I’ve always been struck by lady luck
But now i’ve tasted the other side
And i’d rather give it all away
Then have a chance to tell you goodbye
Then have a chance to tell you goodbye

So when they come into your life
You better take it while you can
Cause it’s better to have loved
Then to die a loveless man

And i’d rather give it all away
Then have a chance to tell you goodbye
Then have a chance to tell you goodbye

 

The Fears That Bind

If you look into these eyes
You’d never see what I see
Hiding behind the mask I wear
Can feel so natural to me

We all may feel this way sometimes
But then we forget which is real
How do I tell the difference?
How do I know which way I feel?

So many people think they know
What lies behind this face
But the truth is they’ll never know
What my heart wants to say

Why must it be so easy
To hide behind this mask
Then to accept who we truly are
And scared to say, if asked

I know sometimes the role we chose
We feel like we made the choice
Till we find out that our own fears
Somehow compromised our voice

But one day we must take the risk
I know it’s scary to take that chance
But that’s the only way to find out
If they can accept who I am

Burned That Bridge

So many miles have come between us
So many twists and turns
But how many times can I come back
Till I finally learn

We might have started this journey together
But somehow I missed all the signs
Cause we find ourselves on different roads
And it’s time to say goodbye

We’ve traveled down this road
But it’s time to burn that bridge
Cause I’ve learned i’ll always be
The best you’ll never get

Somehow I feel like i’m just a passenger
Just another suitcase for you to hold
But just like the air around us
Our love has turned cold

But there’s no chance for us to find
A way to bring back the heat
So it’s time for me step on out
Cause these roads will never meet

We’ve traveled down this road
But it’s time to burn that bridge
Cause I’ve learned i’ll always be
The best you’ll never get

I guess you could say that I
I’ve created my own path to take
Now that I’ve let go of what was once
My biggest mistake

I’ve traveled down that road
But i’ve burned down that bridge
And leaving you taught me how to be
The best i’ll ever be

We’re All Wishing For The Answers

I’m so tired of paying for
The time I don’t have to spend
Cause how many times can I go back
To teach my heart how to mend

How many times can I go through the motions
Of learning how to love then move on
Cause the rules they keep changing
And it’s becoming harder to be strong

We’re all wishing for the answers
To the question before its asked
Will this love be forever
Or another love left in the past

Cause your heart can only take so much
Before the pieces are too small to mend
And I’m not sure how much more I can take
Till i’m tired of this game i’m in

How many times can a person heart’s take
Another ride on this thing called love
How many trips around this same old game
Till we feel like we’ve had enough

We’re all wishing for the answers
To the question before its asked
Will this love be forever
Or another love left in the past
