How do you get over
What was never really there?
How do you enjoy time
When it isn’t even here
Can you move on from something,
That lives deep inside?
That safe place within
Where you run to hide
Even though that refuge is lined with mementos
Of things you would rather forget
So even when you try to save yourself
You are just drowning in regret
There was once time enough
To get up and shake the dust off
To laugh in the face of those who would push you down
And walk away without the things you lost
But each fall took its toll
Each push had its price
Getting up, walking away,
No longer suffice
It’s a struggle, a fight,
To get back up again
When you have had enough,
Would rather wallow in pain
So how do you get past that?
Past the years and hurts holding you down?
How do you lift above your troubles
When they are always all around.
