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

No Longer My Home

Inspired by watching a show involving a person coming out of a coma to his family that moved on…

You ever wake up one morning
And feel so out of place
Like the whole world turned upside down
And you’re left without a trace

Now i’ve known this world for so long
And every place felt like home
But i’ve woken up today in a place
Where I no longer belong

I wish these wounds would heal
Wish I could learn to let go
Cause this world i’ve always known
Is no longer my home

So many memories i want to cling to
So many things i’m afraid to leave
But how can you let go of the life you lived
When all you want to do is grieve

I want so bad to hold on to
Everything that i’ve had
But I know that I’ve gotta step back
Cause I’ll never understand

For my wounds to heal
I’ve got to learn to let go
Cause the world that i’ve always known
Is no longer my home

Now it’s time for me to find my way
Time to find a new place to call my home
The world I left will be nothing but a memory
Once i’ve learned how to let go
Once i’ve learned how to let go of that place

That’s no longer my home

 

Your Guiding Star

I’ve watched you for so long
As we walked down the same road
I’m hoping to be there to guide you
In where your life is going to go

But sometimes I can’t always be there
So this I must say to you
If you ever feel like you’re lost
This is what you must do

When you don’t know who you are
And you find you’ve lost your way
I will be your guiding star
Cause I’m here to stay

Making your way surrounded by darkness
Trying to find your inner light
Not sure where your life is going
So lost and out of sight

But look up in the sky
Cause I will always be there
I will help you find yourself
When you’re caught so unaware

When you don’t know who you are
And you find you’ve lost your way
I will be your guiding star
Cause I’m here to stay

You’ve been walking down this path
For so long you’ve felt alone
But no longer will you have to
Cause you have me here to call a home

When the world feels alittle dark
I’ll be there to make you shine
You know where you can find me
I’m where our hearts always align

When you don’t know who you are
And you find you’ve lost your way
I will be your guiding star
Cause I’m here to stay

The Side Road

So many people in the world
Always follow the main road
But as I look ahead of me
I know where my future wil go

I must take the side street
Cause it’s my own journey to take
I’ll only learn what I need to know
If I make the stops I make

Every stop along the way
Will teach me who I am
And about all of the signs
That I just can’t understand

One day I know I will arrive
Back on the main road
But for now this is my path
Until I find my own

An Unexpected Day

So many days pass on by
So many thoughts on my mind
Yet I never take the chance
To see what answers I can find

I get so lost in the endless circles
A place and time for each day
Never knowing what could be
If I didn’t always go the same way

It starts to feel like all my weeks
Are starting to look the same
And If I never break the cycle
That’s all that will remain

Sometimes it might be for the best
To change it up if you can
Cause sooner or later you will find
Yourself lost on life’s plan

But what else is out there waiting
When you never looked another way
And can you ever learn to live
In a new and unexpected day?

Stage Fright

Why do I feel so uneasy on stage
Like I’m not confortable in my own skin
Always caring about the crowd
And how I look to them

I keep trying to tell myself to stop
And just enjoy my place in the light
But something always brings me back
To the demons I must fight

The stage still feels like it’s my place
Yet I’m still trying to find my own
Searching for a way to turn this battlefield
Into a place I can call home

Home is Where the Heart is

Sometimes the hardest things in life
Is to walk an unfamiliar road
But sometimes the road we stay on
Will make us just want to fold

It’s like inside we feel trapped
by the fear of what’s unknown
Unsure of what’s ahead of us
if we can come into our own

I know this path I’m walking on
I’m safe to call it my home
But if I keep walking down this path
I’ll never push myself to grow

We learn in life what we love
But that love is not alone
We must dig deep inside of us
So we can find our home

Home is where our heart is
But this road has lost it’s way
It’s time to step out of here
I need to learn to live for today
