what is it that im doing here

why is it the thought of change that i fear

what is it inside of me

that keeps me from what i want to be

everyone can see the potential of what

is lingering there in my thoughts

how easy it is for me to change

and accomplish bigger and better thing

put to rest my childish ways

forget about forgotten days

im holding on to ghost of my past

standing still going nowhere fast

how long can i keep you all at bay

saying the same things you've heard me say

over and over time and again

its already cost me loved ones and friends

how long will sitting here suffice

how long can i use this device

smooth talking, convincing words

what will it take for me to learn

put to rest my childish ways

forget about forgotten days

im holding on to ghosts of my past

standing still going nowhere fast

whatsthe next thing i will lose

who will be left to hear my blues

when ive disappointed the last of you

ill be alone its sad but itstrue

ill drain myself till i belie there is nothing left

disappoint myself like i have with the rest

sit and wonder why it all went wrong

sit and write another woe always me song
