"Forgive and forget, but don't forget why you're here."

My whole world is like a movie
But nothing Hollywood would make, just a simple film
Round the corner and down the street
Every passing glance introduces you to me
And taking a new turn only makes this journey all the more real
Are the more exciting to feel
When beautiful is written across the sky
Don’t be shy to shout out that this creation won’t change
That your leap of faith isn’t strange
Just to take once every other moment
The chance to leave out the “why?”
Never crossed my mind that
I’d ever start running and dare to defy
Radically, the world’s take on gravity
And magically, start to fly with both feet still on the ground
I’m chasing down thoughts that I never knew were possible to think
From billboards to crumpled posters left on side walks, it’s all unique
On the brink of wanting a higher purpose
And being bound by material of you don’t know what
Is it just because, you don’t understand at this point,
If you know where you’re headed
All your life you’ve dreaded to stop and wonder where you are
You’ve come this far with a one-way ticket
And limitless expectations
Still your pocket burns for that passport
With a stamp to nowhere special, or a quieter place
To simply sit and watch the morning dawn in this special space
Slow the drum beat of the reckless decisions
To take a calmer side to this crazy world
For a moment, just live in it
Whisper softly, and listen while I tell
The story of the train that’s taken you from
Country to country, from the coast to the sea
Every step on your voyage tells you so carefully
It all started with this
One footfall short of jumping overboard
You didn’t always know what would be in store
But let me just tell you this:
It all started when you wrote down your biggest wish.
