lyrics

Here I am
Lost in the forest of my good intentions
I can be
My worst enemy
As I sabotage what could have been fine
That is, a self I love
Time after time

Isn’t it sad
How we blame ourselves so
When from our heart never left
Anything meant to hurt

Yet pain finds us again and again
And when he turns to that eternal friend
He finds the darkness in the light
If I love myself, why the fight

Day 8 in this forest
I’ve been here before
Let’s circle round this tree again
As if there could be anymore

Through the canopy I see the sky
Such beauty with such little why
Shining down unabashedly
Daring me to finally be free

In this forest I hear a man
He say go on, he says I can
If I believe in me, what’s to fear?
A conscious is with me here

Tread on, through the tangled expanse
When I entered I can’t remember
Must have wandered in but on a whim
It was much easier to leave back then

I’ve tried to run, I’ve tried to climb
It doesn’t really save any time
There’s only an end
When you realize what you’re in

See beautiful flowers and chirping birds
They’ve found themselves in here as well
Some people never realize where they’ve been
That the light above could have been less dim

A stream of life, I’m on its shore
There’s been so many here, and only more
A telling sign of life’s downstream flow
A splash of water to my face will help me grow

There’s been paths, I’ve known them well
But a while ago I ventured off the trail
I tried to find it again to no avail
Just because it looks like it’s going somewhere
Doesn’t mean you can end your tale

Which is why I’m alright without the trail
So many stick to it thinking
That it’s got their best interest at heart
But the trail’s only so visible as it’s ever been trodded
You only ought to take it
If it’s best for you
Not because
You think it’s the thing to do

For I’ve come to learn to navigate
For direction’s sake
To do what it takes
So that I can get through this
