No place in the world. No time for it all. Only wasted hours away from you.
Standing behind a wall. Feeling each crack with my fingers. Knowing life is on the other side.
Crumble to pieces on the floor. No need to pick myself up. Ive already blown away into the night.
Asking the stars question. Demanding answers from lifeless planets. The universe must answer to me.
For tomorrow will never come if you don’t take my hand. Hold on tight and run with me. Run into the night. Run from the light. Run from day to night. Everlasting in my arms you’ll exist.

Life from behind your headphones. A life that dulls the sounds and feelings around you. A gentle hand on the volume turning down the colors.
“After school she ran to me. Jumped in my 5.0. It is the home of the brave and the land of the free, but your parents still didn’t know.”
Let the music fill your ears and seep into your brain. Let the beats and notes put you on cruise control. Sink deeper into the seat and let the journey begin.
“I could tell you whatever you wanted to hear but if I just said Hello would you listen to me?”
The world becomes a more peaceful place. The family fights in the background disappear with each line. And your troubles dispense when filled with someone elses. Walk into the shadows and breathe.
“I want to scream so loud for you. Because I’m so proud of you. And let me talk about what I’m about to do, Hey Mama.”
Now let the light envelop it all. Let the sun shine down and open your eyes for the first time. Look at the world around you, so full of beautiful places and people. Each one loving the next.
“Feels like I’m running on walls and I don’t want to touch the ground. And if they say I’m lost then I don’t want to be found.”
Music takes me to a different place, a new place, a better place. Where we freely talk about our mistakes and problems. We let everyone know about every little wrong thing we’ve done. Purposely living in a glass house and loving it.
“Ive been so low I can feel the gravity in the world around me. Ive been so low I can feel the fire as it swirls around me. And Ive been so low that it felt ice cold like was at the bottom of the sea.”
My soul repairs itself thru these stories and songs. Music playing thru my headphones letting me know everything is going to be alright. Letting me know people have been here before me. Letting me know I can get thru all my own problems. Letting me know its all going to be ok.
“The sky might fall. But I’m not worried at all.”
