Look into my eyes
 
See the emptiness
 
A lost soul
 
Long gone by my own hands
 
By my own choices
 
By my own struggle
 
To find a moment of solace
 
Afraid of losing it all
 
Not afraid of standing up
 
 
Fought to clean my life
 
Clear out my mind
 
Clear my soul
 
End my downward spiral
 
Into the ashes of death
 
Reaching out for help
 
From others struggling with me
 
Afraid of failure
 
Not afraid to take a stand
 
 
Given a second chance
 
My heart beats a different tune
 
My soul returns
 
Into my face
 
My eyes
 
My life
 
You’re not alone
 
Through the storm
 
Reach out for the sky
 
Of happiness and clarity
 
Afraid of going back
 
I’m not afraid
 
 
Look into my eyes
 
I’m back
