Strange dreams
intrude your mind
forseen among the truth
that could've been
hold out your hand
and reach for some love
maybe this is what should've been
forbidden thoughts
of what was thought to be true
but turn the corner
you see the other world
what never was
and could never be
maybe to be a little free
to sink your toes into the sea
silence washes over
the feeling of relief
that could've been
stroke the pain that lies within your heart
feel it flutter
with every beat
pound with every breath
what could've been
is now the past
the present and the future
are still to come
feeling like a trapped bird
in a cage of misfortune
and disdain
was the key lost
or are you
scream out still no luck
yell and holler
no one hears
wonderin if your alone
is this what has to be
is this your path
whimpering in pain
maybe they'll see your wounds
the old and new
and then they'll see what could've been
holding out your hand
reaching for someone
someone to hold and care for you
and you fall
I guess this is what has to be
