Waiting for the Sun

I’m Tired of walking
I want to run
Tired of shadows
I’m just waiting for the sun

Tired of losing
Why can’t I win?
You force me to conform
I feel pinned

I want to be me
You want me to agree with you
I’m too tired of trying
But I don’t know what else to do

Tired of following
Tired of being behind
I should be in front
Why can’t it be my time?

I love this a lot
I want to be free
To do what I love
And also to be me

It’s been two years
And still no results
I’ve worked my a** off
Trying to impress this dolt

I work and I work
My fingers to the bone
I’ve been so stressed
When I get home

I kick and I scream
Where no one can hear
If she found out
I would be quaking in fear

I’d be out I’d be gone
It might be a relief
Then would go time
And I’d feel grief


I’m Tired of walking
I want to run
Tired of shadows
I’m just waiting for the sun

Is there a bright side?
I guess soon I’ll know
It’s just taking its sweet time
But it almost has to show

I want to know right now
But I guess I have to wait
Good things are worth waiting for
But it might be too late

I want to quit
I want to be free
To get away from this madness
To get away from ‘not me’

I’m tired of waiting
I want to get out
I’m tired of whispering
When all I want to do is SHOUT

If I shout I’m done
If I don’t I’ll explode
I am glad I have friends
I can trust to unload

Tired of trying
I just want to be done
Tired of rumors
I’m just waiting for the sun
