Left Behind

Think it’s strange
Think it’s unfair
How everyone is moving on
Without me
Who they are
What their doing
Where their going

And leaving me behind…

Untied knots by tying more
What used to be so easy is now so hard
Stuck in place
Standing still
Trying to figure myself out
While others fly bye

Like standing on yellow lines
Cars race past
In a flash
Then vanish
Can’t catch up on these wobbly feet
Where has my balance gone?

Who I thought would always be there
Fading, fading to gray
Fading, fading away

Cant move forward
Until I know what will get me there
Fear of anyone seeing inside
But so desperate to break through
Why is everyone in motion?
When I am frozen?
They won’t wait
Or look back for even a second

The world is
Shifting, shifting away
And I am shifting, shifting into stay

Hitch hike
Thumb out
No one stops
No one looks my way
Leafs float down at my feet
Where to go?
Who to turn to?

Jump into the headlights…

I want to freeze time
Want it all to stop
Hold my pause
And change everyone’s direction

But no one is coming back for me
Left to find my own way
Not even my surest stat to guide me

Alone, alone
How long with the night last?
Who will I be?
And where will I have gone?
When the night is over

So I’ll walk these yellow lines
Alone so cold
Till morning finds
Me left behind…
