Letting Go

she wants the cage she lives in to vanish
clean out her closet and break through the walls
that stop her from dreaming, that make it impossible to live her life
she wants to clean the mess inside her head
clear old dusty boxes with memories
of stories she wanted forgotten, but never really could

facts, evidence, figures, clues and hints
tangible evidence of a crime at hand
bruises, injuries, black eyes and tears
tangible evidence of a painful past

break up with the past, leave it all behind
it’s easier said then done
break up with the past, leave it all behind
i know, it’s easier said then done

if only the days would move a little faste
sleep would last just a little bit longer
and being awake and conscious, wouldn’t have to be so endless
come let waves erase all the past
let them wash it away and bury
everything that once was, ’cause some things are meant to be forgotten

facts, evidence, figures, clues and hints
tangible evidence of a crime at hand
bruises, injuries, black eyes and tears
tangible evidence of a painful past

break up with the past, leave it all behind
it’s easier said then done
break up with the past, leave it all behind
i know, it’s easier said then done
