Take me back...

Where eyes were just kindness and smiles were actually genuine.

Where being mad was just pretend,

And who could pretend the longest.

Take me back,

Where a computer was just a thing in my grandma's garage-

To play kiddie games on.

Where everything was simple:

Go outside or just eat something.

When punishment was going to my room for a couple moments,

Now I willingly choose to stay here for hours

And I no longer kick the walls I wanna be unnoticed.

Take me back when going to bed meant going to sleep;

listening to "Sandman" on my CD.

Same song that went on for weeks ,

But I always loved it- it put me to sleep.

Take me back when I'd spend hours by myself

And I'd honestly like it.

Where I didn't need anyone or anything to fuel my imagination.

When love was just a simple hug of human interaction;

My parents, imagination, toys and laughing.

Take me back where cars were monstrous things

And I actually believed it when teachers said "You can be anything"

Back then I didn't get that no one can really save you,

They don't patch up the wound just wipe away the blood.

Back then they said hold it tight- the bleeding will stop.

Well I'm older now and I'm still bleeding.

Maybe I need to hold tighter.

In another life maybe I could be stronger and let go,

But I'm still here holding on to memories.

Now that I think of it I'm just ghost stuck in a time where I'm just a kid

And I don't get why people have to die.

So take me back cuz right now I'm only superficially there

My memories are fading and I'm scared,

Sandman gave me too much dust.
