Don't Shy Away
Some things are better left at home,
Don’t want to risk being alone.
You just have to be someone else,
Just to fit in with the rest.
The world’s cruel you just gotta learn,
Don’t stick your hand in the fire, or it’ll burn.
Hope no one will judge you from your place,
They can see the mask that’s on your face.
Don’t show your true inner fear,
Wipe away your sorrow and tears.
The world’s cruel but you gotta get by,
Spread your wings get far enough and fly and fly.
Listen to your heart as it beats,
Don’t ever think it’s best to retreat.
Follow your mind into its’ depths,
Don’t fall for something that leads to regret.
The world’s cruel but don’t shy away
Try to live your life Day by day.
I wont shy away
If you’re here to stay.
