Hourglass

Today I found lost myself again

And I discovered I was searching

For really nothing at all

Everything was right in front of me

I had nothing that could go wrong

But that was something that could never last

Because I had broken the hourglass

Everything once so precious to me

Had begun to slip right through my hands

A part of me had been buried long ago

And now I'm drifting on alone in this snow

Another memory has come to pass

As I tip this new hourglass

Drag me down and curse my name

I'll never feel your worthless shame

Because I am an individual all my own

For far too long I have not shone

The stars in space may burn out

The sun may cast a glow upon someone new

The moon may not show these feelings I had with you

New life is breathing inside of me

Unexpected in it's wake

Now my love I must chase

Right from wrong the lines are blurred to me

So if I'm looking blind than you be the one to see

That I cannot fight this battle as just one

Because the dream will come undone

You don't need to wear a mask or hide your scars

I just want you to love me, and stay just the way you are
