Finding Someone


I was hoping to find someone

And at first, I found you

And you were beautiful and turbulent

But perpetually untrue


I thought I was left with no one

And maybe I was back then

Being alone just couldn’t compare

To the way that things had been


Then I heard you found someone

And my world turned upside down

Because suddenly I realized

You wouldn’t be coming back around


And so I too searched for someone

To fill the void that once was you

And the memories of your company

Still choked me ‘til I was blue


And I failed to find anyone

Who could make me feel a thing

And when it came right down to it

I didn’t have much to bring


And so I searched for someone

In the depths of all that was me

Looked past the pushing away

I was surprised with what I could see


And so I became someone

Someone I would want to meet

A girl who was strong but gentle at heart

And who refused to accept defeat


And so I found someone

And my chains and angst were freed

I had tried to make someone else

Fill what all along was me


And so I am someone

Who is proud and all alone

And maybe someone, somewhere

Will make this heart a home
