There are times when i don’t feel strong,
Like life is pulling me along
And i am hanging on by a thread.
In times like this, in times of need,
i feel there is no one but me.
i feel lost and i’m trying to move forward,
And i know this path is for me to figure out,
But i feel lost and i’m trying to move forward.
i can’t see anymore, i’ve tried to reason my life,
i can’t feel anymore, i find it hard to survive.
Can you see me at all, do you care to understand?
Can you hear me at all, will you turn your eyes again?
God let me believe the day i will be free.
i will be free.
And i’ve got good friends around me, so close i could throw a stone,
Oh, i’ve trouble relating when i’m self-medicating and alone.
And all of my life i have been having these crazy dreams,
All of my life i have been living in extremes.
And i guess i’m taking this slow, i’m on shaky feet on shaky ground
i’m standing at the edge of another precipice in life.
Gotta face my Steppenwolf,
Gotta drag you through the mud,
When i get there i will see myself.
I will look for strength within.
I will be a better woman.
Hang in there baby, I’m the grain of sand
Becoming the pearl.
It takes a few moments of whirling around
Before your feet finally leave the ground.
And fending off fears and hearing the call
And finally waiting for nothing at all.
Obstacles are stepping stones
That guide us to our goals,
Fences are filters
That purify our souls.
And the light is growing brighter now
If my finest fleet, should never reach the sea
And if my darkest hour still awaits me,
If this brief glimmer is all that’s meant to be,
Then let me walk bravely into open fields.
