Mixed up in a time that doesn't want to end
Sleeping through the shining sun on my face
Can't wake up from this personal pain today
Running my hands through cold water to escape
A place that holds my thoughts and ties my hands
Just let me go so the music inside me can play
I'm at peace when guitar strings play so sweet
Someone's talented hands strum my life to sleep
Something just releases from my broken soul
Piano keys that come together in the streets
I just want to run my hands underneath the dirt
I don't want to thirst for sound; but rather live in it
I know at times it's hard to follow me down a road
My writing jumps around with ideas that I hold
But I will never tell you that it's not what's inside
Because the grass roots that lie under my skin
Only provide a glimpse of really what's in my mind
Because everyday I ask myself if I'm really okay
As the music helps me slip away and not go crazy
My chest is tight with overwhelming feelings of flight
But I stay and fight because I've never ran from the night
I go middle fingers to the sky and tell myself to cry
Depression can't have my life and anxiety I will survive
You're a monster in my life and live in my mind
My only weapon is to write you into the night
Expose you for what you are and help others to live
Live life in the light and love the rain when it comes
Hold tight to the smiles that have affected my life
Remember the songs that tell me to let go and love
Flip a coin and turn my dreams towards the sun
Open the windows and allow the sounds of music to flow
My heart is pumping and the blood is rushing from my soul
Be young; stay bold and let my story be told
Be courageous; stay breathing and #NvrFlySolo
Writing and Peace
