One Step Closer

As I sit here, the wind is blowing
Need to figure out who I am and where I’m going
What would happened if I just walked away
Wouldn’t have to deal with you again today
Take a chance for once, burn bright instead of fade

Waiting for everything
I don’t really know what
Just gazing to the distance
Hoping you’ll show up

But I can’t help but think…
Am I still what you used to see in me
Am I still not everything you wished I would be

Do I still not measure up to all your expectations?
Is there anyone there to save me from my own complication?

The second blow is always the easiest
Let it happen, drown out the pain that’s immediate
I look around, now everything is silent,
What’s the use trying to hide it?

So yeah, maybe I’m just a little too hopeful
Not the kind of person who should be looking up
So stop being so f***ing optimistic
Don’t tell me it’s alright
You don’t know
I can tell you something that you don’t

What's my plan if it’s not this?
I'm sort of getting lost in it...
Run away, escape, leave, anything but what they want me to be

Just one step closer to what I don’t know
But I think that other road is the way I need to go
