give me one reason
to no longer wander through the seasons
to stop looking at the sky for answers
or waiting for the stars to respond to these prayers
do what you can, baby all you have to do is try
just give me a reason why
i shouldnt search the skies
or why these heavy eyes
should draw their gaze away from the stars
that they look at from afar
hoping for something amazing
to relieve them of this burden, but finding nothing
give me a reason
to look down from the sky
to look at my own two feet
and wonder why
they take me places i dont want to be
and i wonder if you know, why im me
why i am who i am, while your at it
give me a reason to be free
i know you can set me free
