One day I hope that I can be
Instead of here, in all this rage,
I wish I could just turn the page
Another time, another place,
How I wish I could run that race
To have someone to love myself
I wish I could be some place else
No love, no hope, what can I do?
But dream a dream
and hope it comes true
Spending time, wasting time
No love for me, no heart for mine
Telling people what I want
Seeing them act so nonchalant
Hoping, praying, wishing too,
Someone make my dream come true,
And take me out of here somehow,
I dream this dream,
I'm dreaming now.
A Sea of blue, the scent of you,
Clouds that float so close above,
A family, a friend,
Summers that don't end
The train moves, I'm getting close,
Faces I know, everywhere I go,
Memories of love, many of those,
Not far away,
Maybe again today
Smiles and laughter everywhere,
Now I see, where I should be,
Happiness from here to there,
I should have known,
It's good to be home
I'm returning to the place I love,
A Sea of blue, the scent of you,
Clouds that float so close above,
A family, a friend,
Summers that don't end
What do you see?
Do you see my thoughts?
Or just my outer beauty?
Sometimes I think
Everyone looks through me
Seeing what they want
Ignoring who I am
What can I
do?
To truly be seen
For who I am inside
No just what people see
But beauty is in
the eye of the beholder
I can't control it
We all grow older
My beauty fades
Fades fast, fades away
My thoughts, my feelings,
Thankfully stay
