If Ever I Can

-

If I

Fall a-

-Sleep be-

Fore I

Try to

Make my

Life right

I might

As well

Dream of

A day

Of when

I can

Live the

Good life

And then

Wake up

With a

Memor-

-Rey of

All the

Fun that

Happened

That time

I know

I may

Not have

It that

Way in

My life

So what?

I ain't

Dyin'

Don't tell

Me to

You can

Shut your

Mouths up

And just

Walk out

My life

With the

Knowledge

That I

Don't care

You won't

Be back

Here in

My world

I'm torn

I know

I blow

My mind

With the

Thoughts that

"All is

O.K."

Though it

Isn't

What gives

And what

Doesn't?

Who knows?

It's so

Easy

Just to

Believe

That when

My life

Becomes

Normal

I will

Find my

Self in

Love with

Some one

Who I

Don't have

To hide

In my

Folks house

Just to

Sleep with

Maybe

In my

Future

I can

See my

Self in

Some one

Else's

Arms, and

Feeling

Like I

Could not

Ever

With no

Fear that

Something

Will go

Too wrong

To keep

My world

With me

All the

Things that

I want

From life

Is to

Get out

Of Hell

Before

I die

And not

Exist.

No more

Will I

Ever

Make that

Dream come

True for

Me to

Live out

In the

World that

Is so

Big, and

Needs to

Include

Me in

It soon?

Well, un-

-Til I

See that

Day, I

Live here

And pray

Waiting

For a

Better

Way to

Face the

World I've

Wanted

To be

A part

Of be-

-Fore I

Do die
