Can I Come Back

Can I Come Back

I should have took out my paper and pen
I should have put on a smile
Even though this world I’m living in is no longer stable
I should have known this for a while
Why do I give in, decide to give up
Let go of motivation, live with no luck
Why is it so hard to believe
What my father has kept for me…

Can I come back
Is it possible
Can I come back
Can I live what was meant to be
Can I see
The light within the storm
Can I want for something more
Than what I’ve been holding on to
No matter what I say or do
All I’ve been holding on to
Is nothing good…

I should have chose some kind words today
Instead of living in my cloud of grey
The one thing I don’t know how to throw away
But I think I do
I should have challenge myself
Amidst the heat
Taking that chance to defeat
The negative thoughts inside of me

Can I come back
Is it possible
Can I come back
Can I live what was meant to be
Can I see
The light within the storm
Can I want for something more
Than what I’ve been holding on to
No matter what I say or do
All I’ve been holding on to
Is nothing good…

Oh I just got to, I just got to
Let this all end…
I can’t let another season, another year go by
Waiting for a defense
That I can only build in my mind
I must fight through the fire, the wind, the rain
Any kind of pain
That’s what the father wants from me
I just got to come back
I just got to believe…

Can I come back
Is it possible
Can I come back
Can I live what was meant to be
Can I see
The light within the storm
Can I want for something more
Than what I’ve been holding on to
No matter what I say or do
All I’ve been holding on to
Is nothing good…
