Status: Finished  |  Genre: Other  |  House: Booksie Classic

This is a song I wrote about learning to think of someone other than yourself. It portrays a relationship where the couple are having a troubled time commiting

Vrs1

Stare into the world/ tell me what you see/ do you see a nation/ or do you just see me/ a stranger to you now/ tell me how this works out/ lurking shadows and/ dismal place/ yeah/ this is why/ I'm out/ of here/ of unfinished stories and silent tears/ of hope that just seems to be queer/ I'll set myself free/

Chrs

You helped me open/ my petals/ my wings/ You helped the write the/ songs that I sing/ Can't you help me do anything/ now that we're not/ open/

 Vrs 2

It take long walks at night/ when it rains/ I cry/ I fall on my knees/ and ask myself why/ can't I figure out/ what life's all about/ I do things my way/ I can't find words to say/ And this why/ I'm out/ of here/ of unfinshed stories/ and silent tears/ of hope that just seems to be queer/ I'll find myself free

Chrs

You helped me open/ my petals/ my wings/ You helped the write the/ songs that I sing/ Can't you help me do anything/ now that we're not/ open/

Bridge

And in the middle of the night/ I can't wait to cry/ release the tears from my eyes/

Chrs

You helped me open/ my petals/ my wings/ You helped the write the/ songs that I sing/ Can't you help me do anything/ now that we're not/ open/

My petals/ my wings/ the song that I sing/ do anything/

Stare into the world/

It sounds like it would make an excellent song.
