I want to cry make you look in my eyes and show you you have broken my heart but the warmth from your eyes then the cold from your heart would melt me and turn my tears to ice
And here I am in my studio apartment hiding away in my bed squeezing my eyes shut, praying I won't wake up and dreaming of where I should be instead
Now I'm afraid I will never escape from this low
It doesn't feel good I don't feel proud at all
The rain can shine the snow can fall I love it all
but I'm drowning and I don't think I can hold myself up after all
I can remember the year I turned twenty and never feeling more alive with dresses and parties, my first taste of love, and big hopes of healing a hurting world
Now I'm afraid I will never escape from this low
I can't smell sweetness no I can't taste salt at all
The rain can fall all around all day long but nothing happens
I'm beginning to think I may never grow
When I wake up I want sparkling skies and a field where the bases are loaded and the bases are shed pieces of clothing and the laughter is my brothers' and sister's
