Never thought I'd see another day another year and I can say to you that all my troubles have disappeared I wonder where will I go from here I wonder now.. wonder I am different now that I wiped away the tears moved ahead somehow then life became more clear I wonder where will I go from here I wonder now.. wonder all I ever wanted was to slip out from the dark side unlock my mind enough to look at what I've been denying it might've took so long but I've finally stepped on the other side I don't ask why how it all came to be that I was able to see what really mattered to me Alive and not alone anymore found what I was searching for Alive and not alone anymore I want to tell you how I feel that what I hold is just so real Please let me be true till the end

Every time I see you in my mind I'm gonna tell you how I feel about you inside It's a thought that never will be true Since I can not be honest with you I'm angry that I've been this way so long I'm tired and drained by dealing with you too wrong I just freeze whenever you are near I can not get over my fear Why do I act this way I have so much to say to you Is this forever never to be together It's so hard for me to live I have so much for you to give If I could just let you in my life

The silence is so loud Like a scream under water so much motion without any sound Can you hear me can you see me Can you hear me can you see me shout Disturbing mental pictures with heavy emotion Jagged pieces won't fit together Please give me release Can you help me can you save me Can you help me save me from myself Failing at knowing what is fact or fiction Convincing is the surreal Wake me and shake me Bring me to conscious Relieve me from this nightmare Can you help me can you save me Can you help me save me from myself

Just wanted to let you know I am free Just wanted to let you know my friend I am free Since I can talk to you Now I'm feeling alright and I wanted to say that I won't ever fight anymore anymore Just wanted to let you know I miss you Just wanted to let you know my friend I need you Since I can talk to you now I'm feeling alright and I promise to you that I won't ever fight anymore anymore My memories are faded jaded and untrue I wish I had taken care of you care of you oh how I love you

You're my obsession consume all space in my mind With you I wear a second skin of lies under which I hide Growing bad intentions still trying to do what's right robbed of all my passion hollow inside Won't give up without a fight You took my life from me and I'm gonna get it back right now It's more than plain to see that you never were a friend at all I thought I needed you every day to survive Then the haze was lifted from my eyes and I could see right through you You took my life from me and I'm gonna get it back right now It's more than plain to see that you never were a friend at all And I can't understand how I let you run me around keeping me down And I'll never let you control me ever again You took my life from me....

People keep their distance cause they're not quite sure If you're a true person your actions so obscure Not a straight answer are you able to give You talk in circles that's the way you live I really know you You're so clear for me to see You're just a paper tiger can't hide from me You use your friends to try and get ahead and if they can't deliver you act as if they're dead You won't be crossed or you say revenge will be near You're always trying to generate some fear I really know you You're so clear for me to see You're just a paper tiger Stay away from me Your actions caused by insecurity You don't impress me with your false sincerity I really know you......

Do you feel sorry for yourself Blame everybody else For the fate that you've been given Remember this is really what you chose Were you so afraid of what people might say If you gave yourself away Tried not to let them know The sun will never shine in your mind Pretending is much too hard a compromise Do you have regrets on all the bets you placed on your life Sometimes that's the way it goes The sun will never shine in your mind....

And old saying says that all the best things in life are free with all the miles that I have gone I am very inclined to agree No longer look so far down to a future that I can not see Try to recognize the importance of what is right in front of me So much there is untold it hurts as old hard feelings start to unfold Mistakes that I have made I hope all my bad memories will eventually fade Past damage that's been done it's apparent that no one had really won Wounds that turn to scars Lessons learned that makes us who we are

Why did you wake up one day decide that you didn't want to stay I wish I would've known you always seemed like you were all right I never knew of you internal fight I wish I would've known Why did you deem yourself unworthy I would've set you straight in such a hurry but now you're gone Wish you were still right here with me together like we used to be You could've told me what went wrong I would've made you believe somehow that you could've turned you life around I never thought that you would leave It happened so unexpectedly I wish I would've known Was there something that you needed me to say that would've kept you here with me today I wish I would've known Why did you deem yourself unworthy I would've set you straight in such a hurry but now you're gone Why did you make us say goodbye did you not think we would wonder why Why did you do this to yourself You could've asked for help

As I sit here beside you, our talk is simple but has so much meaning to me You look so far away like you're living a day from long ago Your bags are packed and you say it's time to leave Curtain hits the floor its been a good show The trust you built The faith you have within you Allows you to let go Do you wanna fly do you wanna fly Do you wanna fly do you wanna fly I see you reach for the sky

Today I looked at me and knew something bad was up No matter how I try not to, I keep myself messed up I try to keep life together I try to keep life straight I am so losing I am only filled with hate I don't know where I'm going or how I will end up But I'm really sick and tired of being all f**cked up The world makes me angry no one can see me right My own paranoia has clouded my insight I want to help myself but I don't know how Someone please give me a roadmap 'cause I really need it now And I'll put in the effort and I'll give myself some time If that's what it's finally gonna take for me to be fine Just let me get some peace of mind I want to be fine Need to leave the pain behind Always running and caught in the middle....(repeated) And I've got to keep my world from spinning wild I need to be fine Just let me get some peace of mind I want to be fine Need to leave the pain behind

Moving fast with no where to turn Might as well burn me Pour my ashes in an urn Would anyone even know I was gone Seems all I do is wrong All your conditions I don't measure up To belong in your world Who I am is not enough How do I maintain my sanity When life has become a profanity How did I let this happen Crept up on me from behind Being torn asunder How will I survive No one can see The innocence in me Has been pushed so far beneath buried by guilt set so deep So this is my story Much too late to say I'm sorry So I'll pull you tight And say goodbye No one can see..........
