I lost myself in the light of day 

Suffocating in the open air

I could not see


I don’t remember who I used to be

It was a long time ago 

I feel like I’m fading


I no longer have a history

There is nowhere to look back 

I am gone 

I’m in the memories 

I've forgotten myself 

I can not see my reflection


I’ve fallen into a trap I set myself

Failure seems like the only option 

But I have to be more


There are people counting on me

I am counting on myself

I need to take a step backwards

And look in the mirror again
