A fall of your breath, an ache in your chest
A desire to run, to jump, maybe jest
Hope abounds in you today
Gone are the troubles, the fear of yesterday
It watches you close
Keeps you near
But then, suddenly, enter the fear!
Will you quell the river? Or will it quell you?
They offer you a choice, but what can you do?
For even if you fell the river, you lose what is true
And gone will be those you considered close to you
But if you take the fall, is it not better for them all?
No worries for them, but misery for you.
Tell me please, what is there to do?
Nothing can be done, you and pain are now one
Watching through a broken lens
Aching inside, but happy friends
The world is good, the grass is green
The water’s clear, the air is clean
But the sun burns your skin
It hurts your eyes
The water heals your skin, but it breaks you inside.
The grass cuts your feet, every breath pains your lungs
And try as you might, they hurt too much to run
Then, you faintly hear them laugh, the occasional cheer
The blind can see! The deaf can hear!
But you cannot, perhaps the lighting is just bad here?
Every trouble of the world,
It all comes upon you,
The hate, the hurt,
It all slowly binds you
You fall from your beautiful place in the sky,
But no, no, they will not see you cry
And still they come, you turn away
And watch from the dark, far, far away
Trying to live in the past, and you miss the today.
Was it worth it?
They are happy, yes, it’s true
But was it worth the expense of you?
To know the joy, we must feel the sorrow
Break to the point where there’s no light from tomorrow
And then, slowly, a candle is clued.
Do you light it, or not?
It’s all up to you.
