Finding New Roads

Same love - Macklemore

I walked down the same streets most of my life

See all the familiar faces all smiling and bright

Saying there goes the girl that was raised right

Wrapped in the perfect bubble staying away from the light

But something was shining deeper inside me

Like a moth to that light - it was my life

And we call that "those teenage years"

Compressed and filed in the catagorey of fear and rebellion

Like having your own opinion is pushing against them

and one hundred to one means the grounds your bestfriend.

So don't even try to dig in - just give in and put that lovely smile back on your face.

And wait.

So for ninteen years that what I'd do.

Sit in those dark corners - silent and mute,

Then I found you.

The doors opened free

And from those doors stood a world that welcomed me for me

So we took down roads that have never been taken

Said all the feelings that had never been worth saying

And when I thought it was all too good to be true

All their reactions got a hold of you

I would like to believe they pulled you away

That no matter how much you screamed and kicked and pleaded to stay

They wouldn't let you

But that's one hell of a lie from the truth

You don't have the scars to show the story.

Abandoned on the road you left me

and now I'm cold.

When I'm lonely, or sad, or happy - I think of you

Which is more often then I wish

I think of what an amazing thing I would have missed

If I kept to those same roads

And did what I was told

Lived a life without ever being bold

Or opinionated.

But now I've found new roads

And I'll continue down them

Thanks to you.
