In that basement we were exactly who we wanted to be,
rock stars and poets, artists and designers.
That basement was our haven
because when we walked up those stairs
we were just teenage kids again
with dreams that were just too big.


I close my eyes
And just try to breathe
Try not to cry
Try not to think
I am alone
But, this is the way
The way to happiness
One day
I have to be strong
Within myself
I have to learn
That I don't need help
From now on it doesn't matter
If I lose all my friends
They weren't mine to begin with
It was all pretend
But I can't be mad
Or apologize for changing me
This is how it is
How it has to be
So I crawl in my corner
My head in my hands
My mind made up
Content with my plans
I close my eyes
And just try to breathe
Try not to cry
Try not to think
