Came from nowhere - 
the sun in my face.
The streets came alive
with the burning,
my yearning
for the places I've been.
I ride my own waves out - 
it seemed like a good idea at the time,
to leave it all behind.
Tried so hard
to justify my jilted pride.
Tried so hard to understand
why nothing's scared anymore.
I lived with your bad behavior,
swallowed down your twisted lies
and this is where it brought me -
standing on this street corner,
living, breathing, burning,
tired of the run.
I'm somewhere in my own world now.
So, maybe it's time
to peel you from my skin
and shed my clinging guilt.
And maybe it's time
to live my life today.
Maybe it's time
you looked me in the face
so your eyes can be blinded by the sun.
