Where We Are

Why do we wait for things to happen?
It's as if we expect the universe to give us
What we rightly think is ours
We get from this life
What we decide to put into it

Expectations
Anticipations
Dreams without movement
All lead to disappointment
All lead to heartbreak

I just want people to be who they are
They don't have to pretend with me
I will decide for myself
If you are worth the space in my mind
And you will do the same with me

I no longer live a life of expecting things
To go the way I want them to
There's strength in there but there's also weakness
Trust becomes difficult
Love becomes that much more elusive

'The world will decide. The world always decides'
We are here to protect, love, and care for each other
Anything less shames us all
We don't have the time or the memory for anything else

Let's try this for once

Fly

If I could fly away
I would take to the air
Without thinking about it
And leave the life I know here
To be with you or to be somewhere else
All I need is a reason

To live each day
A short distance from the place
Where I took my first breath
Is a constant reminder
Of the chances not taken
Of the adventures that still await
You don't know what this does to my soul

I see an endless universe in front of me
I have no fear of exploring its wonders
That first step is always the scariest
Time is not my friend anymore
It's a reminder and a weight
It's given me the motivation to change

I will leave you far behind if necessary
Not everyone will agree with the decision
I want to leave to help you as much as myself
We need to live without each other for a while
You will always be my home and shelter
I do not regret going to you
But I do regret coming home

The future has not always been kind to me
But I'm taking it for myself now
I'm not listening to the restless voices in my mind anymore
They've never given me any advice that's been helpful
I have to trust the unknown and be careful
Will you join me on this journey?
Or will you leave me behind as you always have?
We all have our choices to make

Anymore

I’ve been looking for you so for long
I think I’ve exhausted everything else
If you’re out there somewhere
You’re not waiting for me anymore
Any more than I’m waiting for you

I’m so tired of wasting desires
On people who don’t care about me
I’ve wasted affections
On too many women
I think I’ve finally reached the end

I know what I want now
I know now that’s asking too much
Don’t bother asking me what that is
I’ve been used too many times
To care anymore

You can only give yourself enough
Before you realize that those you give yourself too
Don’t want to give anything back to you
I’ve given up on trying
There’s no reason for it anymore

If you are out there
I’ll probably be too blind to see you
I can’t promise you anything
I don’t want to promise anything
Make me realize that you’re with the pain

The Other Side of the Mirror

I’ve been searching all of my life
For someone who I can connect with
Someone who understands my soul
Someone who I give them everything I am
But that someone doesn’t exist

It’s taken me a long time to understand that
There is no one out there for me
I may have seen glimpses of what it’s like
But that’s all it was
A look from the other side of the mirror

I don’t know why I’ve been kept from this
I don’t know what I’ve done to deserve this
A life of solitude and a life of longing
I’ve gone beyond caring about it anymore
Why should it even concern me anymore?

I’ve been within reach of it only to lose it
I couldn’t hold on to it, no matter what I did
I’ve had my heart and soul used
I don’t deserve anything that hasn’t been given to me
But why I’ve been denied me is the real mystery

I know the part I’ve played in all of this
I’m not the one anybody needs or deserves
I’m not the prince or the hero
I’m not asking for sympathy
I don’t know what I’m asking for anymore

If this this is the life I’m supposed to leave
Then I can live with that
Its okay, it’s alright
I don’t care anymore
If this is where I’m supposed to be

I’ve been here for so long
I don’t know what any other path looks like
If there is someone that thinks I can be their prince
Then I can be anything they want me to be
If not, then I can be what I’ve always been

Far Ahead

Maybe I should tell you
What happens whenever I look at you
Not that it would matter to you
But I’m not really sure
That it would matter to me either

I don’t know what to do
About something I know will never happen
It’s a curse upon myself
That I will never lift
And I don’t even care anymore if it does

I’ve gotten used to being alone
It doesn’t matter anymore
If that’s the way my life will turn out
I can’t see that far ahead anymore
I don’t even want to try

Not that any of that matters to you
It doesn’t really matter if it does anyways
You have your own dreams and your own life
I don’t see myself as being any part of it
The path’s we’re taking will never come together

Whether or not I will be a part of someone’s life
Will always be up to them and never up to me
It’ll take a miracle to convince me otherwise
I don’t believe in miracles anymore
Except for the ones we make for ourselves

Hero

I don’t know what to say when I’m around you
It’s not that I’m nervous and can’t speak
That’s the first time I can say that
It’s just that I don’t know if you’re listening
And I don’t really know if you can

I can’t be what you want me to be right now
That much is obvious to me
And it’s evident in the way we are together
I’m just there to make you smile
And I guess that’ll have to be enough

I don’t know if I can ever be what you want
I don’t even know if that’s even desirable
How much of myself I would lose in the process
Would destroy me or build me up
And I can’t say what option is better

I see a beauty and an intelligence there
When it’s sometimes lost to you
It’s always there and I never miss it
But I don’t know if that even matters
If we’re from two different worlds

You need a hero and I’ve never been one
You need someone to hold you at all hours
And I can’t do that right now
You need someone to be there for you
All I can do is listen and hope

Maybe there will be a future for us some day
Maybe will just wind up being the closest of friends
I’ll just have to settle for that if that’s what the future holds
I’ll try to be there for you whenever I can, even it’s not enough
It’s all I can ever do for you

Our Own Journey

There’s been so many nights
That I’ve spent alone
Lost inside my thoughts
Lost inside my own imagination
There’s too many questions that I ask

What am I still doing here
When there’s a universe out there
In front of me
I know I don’t belong here anymore
So what is it that keeps me here?

I don’t know the answer to these questions
I’ve decided to stop asking them
Why should I care about the answer?
If the question never gets listened too
Then why do I still have the uncertainty?

I’ve walked a lonely path so far
The ones that have joined me
Have been as valuable as friends can be
But no one is ever there long enough
To see what the road ahead truly holds

We are all on our own journey
We might find that one special person
Who understands us and who loves us
But I haven’t found that person yet
And I don’t think I ever will

We are here to bring happiness to each other
That’s the only truth I’ve ever known
Anything other than that is a waste of time
I hope I can bring some happiness to you all
It’s the only thing I’ve ever had to give

I Am Alone

We all reach a moment of realization in our lives
A moment where the truth of our existence
Hits us squarely in the face
Sometimes it needs someone else to do it for us
But it usually just needs an explosion to make us see

I’ve always felt alone
One drop lost in the sea of humanity
It’s not something that I can avoid
And not something anyone can fix
Although a few have tried

I am alone
I know that now
The journey along the path of life
Is mine to determine
There is no one else I can trust
To join me on this long and lonely road

There are those who have tried to get through
But they are on the same lonely journey
That I am and always have been on
No matter how hard I try
There’s something that keeps me from them

No one can determine my fate but myself
I will no longer let anyone determine what makes me happy
The truth of what I am has been difficult to understand
Some have brought me to this understanding
By making feel a kind of pain I never understood

If you wish to understand me
That’s your choice
Don’t think you can control me
You will be disappointed
I will always be who I choose to be

This journey has been a lonely one
You can either make me happy
Or you can be another disappointment
Choose who you wish to be
Either way, the road continues

The Gap Between Us

Maybe I should tell you
What’s going on in my head
Whenever you’re around
But I can’t ever find the time
And then the time abandons me

I don’t know if it would make a difference
I don’t feel normal around you
And usually that’s not a problem
But I don’t feel like myself either
And that’s the bigger problem

I don’t know what to say half of the time
You leave be breathless and thoughtless
Words never find their way out
But I know it wouldn’t matter if they did
And that’s where the pain comes from

There’s a gap between us
A whole that nothing can fill
You’re life has been an epic journey
I don’t feel I can be a part of it right now
I can’t be a part of it the way I want to

Maybe, someday it can be different
I can be a better person for you
I can be the hero that you deserve
I don’t know if that day will ever come
And it may be too late when it finally arrives

I’ll just try to enjoy the time that I have with you
And try just to make you smile
That’s all that I need most of the time anyways
I need to find my own happiness
So I can one day help you find yours

Somewhere in the Middle

I walk alone
And I don’t care anymore
This path that I’m on
Doesn’t need anyone
To make me feel like I’m worth it
It’s a feeling I’ve become used too

There’s no other way that I know
I’ve been disappointed too many times
Either by others or through myself
All actions have been meaningless
All words have fallen on deaf ears

There is no right person
They don’t exist
How could they?
I’ve looked my entire life
I need to find that person in myself
Before I can find it someone else

Broken promises
And false hopes have been
The only reality that I’ve ever known
Moments of sweetness and joy
Have been destroyed
Faster than they were created

I don’t hold that kind of hope for myself
And I’m not looking for sympathy
I’m only looking for understanding
I’m not going to try anymore
My life will be my own

If you want to go on the journey with me
I can promise faithfulness, laughter, and joy
I can’t promise anything else
You be who you are and I’ll be who I am
And, maybe, we’ll meet somewhere in the middle
