A Little More

All I see are these lonely streets that have become part of me
I don’t know where I belong
I don’t know how to explain this song
I have been gone for so long, will someone help me, to see.

I wish I had a little more time to dream and time to believe the grass is greener on the other side
I get tired of walking down these cold and empty streets
I get tired of hearing the sirens blaring down the street
I get tired of the flickering lights going out in the middle of the night
The time goes by so slowing
I was hoping the sun would rise whilst someone was by my side

I have tried to find a person to hold my hand
But, they just get mad and then I am sad
I don’t belong in this clan
I have been banned from your society and that is fine with me

I am content with my past,
I am content in my shadow
I am content with my feet being the only rhyme I hear
It is better than the sirens blaring through

In the midst of darkness, there is a sanctuary in the stillness
I am fearless and I can witness the peace in the world
I know it sounds absurd but I am free from hurt in the midnight hour
I have been empowered to start again when the darkness ends

I have found a faithful friend in these cities streets
I found comfort in these moments of silence
I have peace amongst the starlit skies
I don’t know why I have always run and hid
From everything I could have been.
