Lost in My own Life

Lost in my own life,
I make my way back home tonight.
Every day I walk down the street,
Knowing you're nearby,
And you[oh you],
You're always on my mind. [my mind, my mind, my mind]

You're a memory unwavering.
Here I stand and you're hovering,
Always there, unfaltering.

Every time I've needed help,
You're there,
Every place I've gone,
You've always been where I need you to be,
But your heart is hidden from me,
Because all this time,
I've been lost in my own life,
Submitting to the voices around me.
Doing as they say,
Walking every way they tell me.

I can't see you but I feel you there.
I feel alone but I know you care.
When I have nothing you always share.
In a quiet room where I feel alone,
You're in the dark where the light has shone,
And I listen for you,
Because you believe in me,
While I'm lost in my own life.

I'm so lost in my own life,
My path looks bare.
Nowhere to go from here,
I'll take a chance and dare to breathe,
Lost in my own life,
I know now,
I just want to be me,
Not who they've made me to be.

Every voice,
Every word,
Ever action is unsure,
I never know how to say
Let me live my own Life here,
But you come along and save me,
[Oooh, you save me]
And you,
Just appear,
When I'm begging to be freed.
[Free-ee-eed]

You're a memory unwavering.
Here I stand and you're hovering,
Always there, unfaltering.
Nowhere to go from here,
I'll take a chance and dare to breathe,
Lost in my own life,
I just want to be me.
[Today]
[Tonight]
[Every day of my life]
[I just want, I just want to be...to be me.]

So many times they've told me,
So many things they've said,
So many places I have gone,
And you haven't left me yet,
Though I'm still lost in my own life,
It would seem I deflect your light
But I feel the warmth that you've brought
To my life,
And I've learned how to say,
No.

I'm learning,
Every chance I get,
I'm striving,
Every path is set,
I'll someday live my own life,
But until then,
I'm still lost,
Lost in my own life.

This world, it holds me, these days, I live...
The nights pass by and They're always the same...
The same.
I just want to live my own life,
Is that so hard to understand?
You're the only one who knows,
The only one who can,
Save me from my own life,
Take me home tonight,
Make it okay,
Make it alright...

Please.

I want to live, love, be me, just for once,
I want to sing a song and let the whole world know,
I have the voice to be heard,
I have to words to be voiced,
I have the will to make my Own Life.

I just wanna live my life...
I wanna live my own life,
I just want to live my life...
wanna be me,
wanna be free,
I just want to Live,
Live
Lost in My own Life.
