staring (song lyrics)

by anthony

(these are song lyrics to one I wrote over the summer.  Just finished putting it down on paper.  Enjoy the poem)

 

 

I sit here staring at the wall

I try to think

but it’s all that I can seem to do

I sit here till I’m disappointed

chasing dreams

drip drip down the tunnel I go

 

words don’t come out as easy as they used to

regrets keep piling up

mistakes make guilt of uncertainty

living life as time stops forever

it seems everyone knows how it goes

yet the higher I get

the deeper down I fall

 

I sit here staring at this wall

I try to dream

but it’s all that I can seem to do

searching for that child

that’s hiding inside of me

trying to face this life

that I have become

 

words don’t come out as easy as they used to

regrets keep piling up

mistakes make guilt of uncertainty

living life as time stops forever

it seems everyone knows how it goes

yet the higher I get

the deeper down I fall
