I wish I could see through others' eyes
I just don't get it maybe that's my disguise
If you could explain this beauty I'm absolutely interested
Because where I sit I see things on a different grid
I'm not fancy or considerably beautiful
But I have an amazing heart and soul
And for some reason I have a knack for making the pieces fit
I guess I can be charming with my wit
But deep down I'm not the heart of the ocean
And the man of my dreams keeps me in motion
But I guess somewhere I want to feel what others see
To feel the greatness in me
Because inside a child is screaming to feel his own strengths
I feel like I run on different lengths
I never have time to feel that wild fire
The embers just burn up my empire
Will it tear down the foundation of my walls
Will the smoke fill the chambers and halls
If I don't find that time to heal the broken vine
Will my hope just shatter or will it climb
Will the fire burn like ashes to the ground
Or will I rise up without a sound
I have to unlock this key to find myself
To bring me to life and save my health
Until then I'm going to keep walking this ocean
And hide my ashes behind my grin
