If you're reading this I'm sure I owe you at least one of these: I'm Sorry. I Forgive You. You Were Right. And most importantly, Thank You. If you've made me smile, you've helped me live.


It's a long run but it's worth the fight.
While your lungs give in, and you don't feel right.
Someone else waits in the cold of night.
Someone is waiting for you.

Though you try so hard, nothing ever works out.
And your mind fills up with meaningless doubt.
Someone else knows what it's all about.
Someone is waiting for you.

If everything was perfect, you'd never change. You'd live a life that never got strange. The bad wouldn't count, as it wouldn't exist. But perfect's not perfect if it's all that there is.

A smile's not a smile if you've never frowned.
And you can't get up if you never fall down.
Someone will pick you up off the ground.
Someone is waiting for you.

If you've never lost, you can't tell when you win.
And you can't know forgiveness if you never sin.
Someone will be there to lift up your chin.
Someone is waiting for you.

If everything was perfect, you'd never change. You'd live a life that never got strange. The bad wouldn't count, as it wouldn't exist. But perfect's not perfect if it's all that there is.

If it doesn't work out, it was not meant to be.
And you can't meet the right one till the wrong one's set free.
Someone will come to answer your plea.
Someone is waiting for you.

You can't say you hate something you've never done.
If you've never been bored, you can never have fun.
Someone will show you that they are the one.
The one who's been waiting for you.

This is the first song I've ever written and composed by myself. The lyrics are pretty shaky but this was my attempt to cheer myself up after a major emotional blow.

"As i grew up my mom told me happiness was the key to life. I went to school and they said to write down what we want to be when we grew up. I wrote down happy. They told me i didn't understand the assignment. I told them they didn't understand life"

This is really good. i liked the repeating of the line, "Someone is waiting for you."
