Everybody is happy but have you met me?
Won’t you take my hand and lead me away?
I thought it was not meant to be like this
I’ve learnt to face life alone.
Drowning in my own tears;
I realise how much I’ve hurt you;
How much pain I’ve caused you.
I need someone to blame but it’s definitely not you.
I try to approach you all of the time but I literally stop in my own tracks.
Won’t you reach out and draw me closer to your heart?;
And give me all of those things I secretly crave;
Peace, laughter and joy
That’ll seep deep and heal the wounds.
I want out of this box, out of this prison I’ve subconsciously built
Maybe I’ll just blame me instead
You warned me but I thought it was all lies
I thought you wouldn’t let me wander too far;
Too far into the cold;
Too far into the lonely woods
Till I got here
Only to realise;
To realise how far I’ve drifted
This is a heartfelt cry
A hearty scream
Find me, find me I beseech thee
Let me not suffer the shame of walking home empty handed
Let these mongers stone me with cruel words no more
Let me come back home.
