I am just a guy

By , san antonio, TX
I am a guy who can’t stand to sit by and watch my life drift by
I wonder what my life will turn out like ten years from now
I see the goodness of my heart trying to come out of its shell
I want to be the best I can at everything I do; I want to do everything I can while I can
I am a guy who can’t stand to sit by and watch my life drift by

I pretend that I am the best when I know that I am not
I feel the pressure of everyone looking to me for advice and answers
I touch the hearts of the people that keep me from doing wrong and show me the correct path
I worry about what people’s lives would be like if all they knew changed
I cry for the sins of the good being committed every day when they know they can do better
I am a guy who can’t stand to sit by and watch my life drift by

I understand the frustration of all the people who expect more from me
I say that we all can do whatever we want if we put our heart and soul into it
I dream of the day where everything in the world comes knocking at my door asking me what to do next
I try so hard to do what my heart tells me, but I can’t help but do wrong from time to time
I hope that my heart and voice will never fade from history
I am a guy who can’t stand to sit by and watch my life drift by
