My place... :)

I put my headphones in,

And I can't hear,

Or see the world around me.

 

I'm no longer here,

I live in a world of music,

I can't live anywhere else.

 

That's why I sing to myself,

I'm in my own world,

My place.

 

I can get away from the here and now,

Be myself like I've always wanted,

And not let this world hurt me anymore.

 

I call myself Butterfly in this world,

Your name is Dragonfly,

My girlfriend.

 

I never want to come back,

This is my reality,

My place.

 

Don't tell me to keep my head out of the clouds,

My head's not there,

It's a million miles away.

 

I don't want this world to see me,

I don't think that they'd understand,

So I sit here in a far away place.

 

I can call my world,

A world of my own,

My place.

 

I need my Dragonfly to stay with me,

And my friend the wolf,

Along with anyone else I need.

 

There's only nice people,

No one to hurt me,

Only the people I love.

 

This world,

Is your world,

Stay out of My place.

 

There's no such thing as grey,

But no sun,

I like the rain just no grey.

 

I go to this place,

Everytime I've been broken,

Or if I need a friend.

 

In your world,

The world of hate yet love,

Unlike My place.

 

When everything's been broken,

I just want you to know,

Who I am.

 

I'm the one who hides in her place,

The one no one cares about,

But I guess that's what I get.

 

As long as you're there,

I'll be just fine,

In My place.

 

Maybe in your world,

You can show me the good,

As long as I don't get hurt.

 

I think that' s why I have my place,

I've been hurt too many times,

So I created a world where I can't get hurt.

 

Sooner or later,

I'll have to be in the here and now,

But My place calls me.
