Standing still

 

Standing still

Chained to the ground

Waiting for the wind to blow

For the angels to carry you home

 

Standing still

Waiting for the flowers to bloom

Hoping someone will come soon

Sadness twinging painfully in your chest

Your heart never seems to rest

 

Standing still

When your world comes crashing down

Your love is nowhere to be found

 

Standing still

Listening to the beat of your fragile heart

Feeling torn apart

 

Standing still

In front of an open gate

Just one more step

That is all it takes

To arrive to the place

Where a better future awaits

 

The chains on your legs

Are nothing but an illusion

One last thing to brake

And be free…
