We are the lights shining bright in many different colours
All just trying to make our own way while hoping for positive change.
There are those who hide among us in the darkness not willing to grow,
when I found her she gave me a reason, a reason not to be alone.
The way the hair sits on her shoulders reminds me of October and how the leaves all fall.
I used to run with the wolves and watch them prey upon the weak,
I watched them climb up on their pedestals and look at those beneath,
I was a voice among the many a coward in their ranks,
I placed faith in hollow people and heard them talk behind my back.
But there are honest people here and I spent a year with them.
This place doesn’t feel the same,
these days our hearts skip to a different beat,
we’ve all got problems, some with moving on and some with letting go,
but I still feel it in my bones like giving up would feel so wrong and no matter where you go
I hope you find your way back home, I drove past out old house just to see how it felt,
remember when we burned the furniture so we wouldn’t fucking freeze to death.
I fell apart like my father before me.
They promised the world while my family ignored me.
I spent so many nights here
and now nothing feels right.
