HERE I AM

 

HERE I AM

PLAYING GAMES

IN A WORLD, JUST A WORLD CREATED TO HID MY PAINS

 

BUT HERE I AM

REMEMBERING WHEN

ALONE, BUT NOT LONELY, BUT LONELIER THAN I’VE EVER BEEN

 

YET HERE I AM

WITH NOT EVEN A DREAM

GETTING MORE LIKE THE REST OF THE BEST OF THE WORST

THAT I’VE SEEN

 

SO HERE I AM

HIDING THE PAST

HIDING THE TEARS, THE FEARS, THE DREAMS AND SCHEMES

THAT WOULDN’T LAST

 

STILL HERE I AM

MYSELF AND ME

SEEKING AND HIDING, HIDING AND SEEKING, FROM ALL THAT WAS

AND WHAT I WANT TO BE

 

NOW HERE I AM

HAVING TO THINK

ABOUT IF I SHOULD STAY, TO WORK OR PLAY, OR GO BACK TO A LIFE

WHERE I’M ALWAYS ON THE BRINK

 

AND HERE I AM

BACK IN THE PAST

WHAT GOD WAS I NOT READY TO DIE, HAVING ALL OF THE WORLD AT MY     FEET

BUT IT DIDN’T LAST

 

HERE I AM

YEAH, HERE I AM

WITH THE TALENT TO MAKE ME, THE WEAKNESS TO BREAK ME,

AND THE SCARS TO PROVE THAT I’M ONLY A MAN
