If I let you see

Some parts of my history

Would they set me free

Wiping clean the deeds

See flowers disguised as weeds

Drink blood the soul bleeds

Blinded by the shame

Memories screaming my name

Silence, play the game

Help me to save face

Vanquishing nightmares that chase

Seeking love’s pure grace

It’s more important

How you feel about the goal

Then when you’ll get there

Oh, bits of brilliance

Flashes of inspirations

Growing into dreams

happy talk

What you tell yourself

You want it to be better

You’re letting it go

What you tell yourself

I feel it’s getting better

I believe I’m free

What you tell yourself

My life keeps getting better

Life responds in kind

One is never lost

Merely awaiting green lights

To continue on
