I’ve written a thousand different words
A thousand different ways
But none seem to mean
The things I mean to say

I could tell you how I feel
But I’m not sure that I feel it
I’ve been armed with all my knowledge
But I’m not sure how to wield it

I see the faces on the people
But there’s no one walking by
They’re just the pictures in my head
They’re just the colors in my eyes

I would share with you some wisdom
I get wiser as I grow
But I’ve got no philosophy
Or a path to show

And although I have a story
It’s a cliché that no one’s told
A reality that’s solely mine
As I grow from young to old

I’m perceiving life
Through the lenses of my mind
And to me it all seems hollow
I’d be just as well off blind

And what I’ve come to realize
Is that we all must live this too
We are just islands on an ocean
Each its own shade of blue
