The gravity of my past - Never thought that it would last.
I find myself so bitter here - I doubt it will be better there.
Try to shake it off but find myself covered in chains.
I grew up with everything too tough - at some point I stopped feeling the pain
So here I am fighting the urge to let go
Cause I no longer have the strength for a show.
How do you think I manage to get through?
If walking a mile in my shoes is not an easy thing to do?
Honest mirrors are really rare
and I prefer the ones that dare
To reflect not only what the daylight shows.
But also the things that nobody but me knows.
My past - it’s a magnet, and I have two poles,
And these sides have been fighting for my confused soul.
I am not sure what to do about that,
because I haven’t taken many steps since the start.
Who’s there to tell me what’s going on,
the opinions of those I meet are too strong
for me to filter what really makes sense.
Cause no one gives a failure another chance.
I thought that I knew where I was going,
Didn’t always find the strength to fight the wind that was blowing.
Will I ever find the place where I truly belong?
I refuse to accept that everything could go wrong.
