Lost and not sure where to turn, 

They say you live and you learn. 

Running and I don’t have anywhere to go, 

It gets cold as the wind starts to blow. 

I’m all alone, 

I’ve pushed away anyone I’ve ever known. 

Can’t even trust me, 

I’m looking for the perfect world I’ll never see. 

I thought things were alright, 

But I am tired of trying to fight. 

I’m giving in,  

And I’m living a nightmare that just doesn’t end.
