The walls sometimes seem to be closing in;
time is going by so fast
so much left that I want to do
before my time has passed.
Sometimes it feels like I am trapped inside
an endless maze of sorts
no matter how hard I try to break free
always seem to just come up short.
Running in circles and spinning around
my head seems to be in a whirl
no matter how hard I try to get it right
life always seems to send me for a twirl.
Just when I think I have it all figured out
and know what I want deep inside
once again fate shows up and tells me again
no, you are not done with this ride.
To know what you want deep down in your heart
but for some reason unable to find it
lost in the abyss that is here in my mind
waiting on that lifeline and ready to grab it.
Waiting on somethiing to pull it together again
to make it all seem worth the while
all this searching and waiting and clinging to hope
that this may finally be the last mile.
