‎"If i were God", he asked the marine, "what would you want for Christmas?"
After a long time the Marine answered, "Give me tomorrow"


day by day
hour by hour
you are just a glimpse that keeps getting smaller.
walking in the woods
hitchhiking from strangers
little things like that help you survive.

cause your a runaway child
with no sense in direction.
you are running from the past that is just so haunting
trying to find a place that feels like home
looking for a place to call your own.

people round town don't know you by name
but they know you by face.
nobody knows the situation your in
and still want to lend a helping hand.

cause your a runaway child
with no sense in direction.
you are running from the past that is just so haunting
trying to find a place that feels like home
looking for a place to call your own.

the few dollars you earn
help you get by
until somthing better comes your way.
scared and tired you feel all hope is lost
then a miracle happens that is beyond all costs.

cause your a runaway child
with no sense in direction.
you are running from the past that is just so haunting
you found a place the feels like home.
now you have a place to call your own.

This is about my best friend who thought it would be best to escape the place that is her home.
