Look Here, then Look Back

When I look back 

I realize 

I love life

Though life comes full with heavy price


When I look back

I love more

Find something to fight for

I got a world in store


When I look back 

I never wanted to die

I wanted to fly

to find an illusive prize


When I look back

I could not find me

I wanted to sink in the sea


When you look back

I pray you do

cause you'll learn all these lessons too


We'll still be lost

but we'll be alive

Life holds its costs

but it holds its prize


We'll still be lost 

but we can always be found

stay strong 

and never lose your sound
