Alien In A New World


Everything around me feels odd

The trees, the cars, the people

I am stepping onto sacred ground

Forbidden land formed by God


Who knew time could fly

It seems like just yesterday I was four

Time has been passing me by

and I have succeeded from the poor 


I was taught that "if there's a will, there's a way"

That's my motto and it's something I can say

From fighting my own battle I know I can win

I'm just scared I might sin


She once told me to not mention his name

But my feelings are to blame

I can't stop thinking about him

His name is stuck in my mind like a stubborn pin


It's a feeling I can't explain

Nothing ever feels the same

What do you look like?

Are you willing to join this fight? 


Random questions stream in and out

Like a flowing river without a doubt

I am willing to risk it all for you

At the same time, I wouldn't know who


Who are you?

What's your name?

Do you know who I am?

Does anything ring a bell? 


Im stuck in this endless tunnel and can't get out

It's starting to feel more and more like night

I don't care how long it takes and I might shout

But at the end I know I will see the light


Fighting for what I want is my destiny

I don't know how but I will find you

Even if you're dead to me

I wont let you step into my shoes


She's kept this all a secret while you're gone

There's not even a picture that I can judge you on

They must have all faded away

Like the memories I can't even replay


I don't remember anything

Who are all these people who claim to know me?

"Dayana! Dayana!" they all sing

Nonetheless I am lost indeed


I saw the guy you were once with

The house, the yard

Everything is out of Control

When at night he saw me and was left in disbelief


How come you never told me about him?

I didn't even know he was once yours

I don't know who to believe now

or what to believe unfortunately.


Old Havana is where you walk with leisure

I am off in search of sunken treasure

I will find you for sure

Just 15 days is what I have measured


People are forbidden to mention your name

I want to cry because you have not been

Here I stand in this empty room

A 4X4 is exactly what I've seen
