What You Were Meant For

you used to be real beautiful
the sun was jealous of your ever lasting light
you used prance along moonbeams with
tip toes running through the night

you used to sing with all your soul
for the world to see your creativity
you used to think things were so simple
as you lay on that velvet couch
your spirit running through the night

now you look in the mirror and everything's gone
wish you could go back to before it all went wrong
what does it take to sap the strength of one so strong
and leave you empty, running through the night
running through the night

you used to stand up for yourself
now who's to blame for the fact that you became
everything cruel they claim
they couldn't know how true
their words follow you, running through the night

you look in the mirror, and everything's gone
wish you could go back to before it all went wrong
now filled with the soiled parts that grew
on the crumbling pieces that were left of you
what does it take to sap the strength of one so strong
and leave you broken, running through the night
running through the night

your heart cries out in a swirl of emotions
and you don't know where you're headed
this path isn't the one you were meant for
But there's no turning back while you're
running, running through the night

you look in the mirror and everything's gone
you wish you could go back to before it all went wrong
consumed by the soiled parts that grew
tearing down the crumbling pieces that were left of you
what did it take to sap the strength of one so strong
and leave you like this

this path isn't the one you were meant for
