Song 4 U

“See you tomorrow,” you said,
Without thinking ahead,
Right after you gave me your usual smile…

“See you tomorrow,” you said,
That “you” is in my head,
It’ll always stay with me…

If by some chance,
I ever reach that stance,
Where I can no longer even trust myself;

In that moment, see,
The moon’s and sun’s bright plea,
Can’t shine anymore…

The hand that I reached out to yours
Is stretched out beyond the light;
Since there is a future we wished for,
With all our might…

I can hear you; I can feel you;
The way you cried; the way you stay who you are
I will send it to,
To your distant star…

Since it will reach; since it will echo,
I will stay the way I am
And I’ll embrace all of your glow,
Even your sorrow…

Even now, my confidence,
Takes so much to convince,
There are times when I can’t simply move forward…

If it’s a mistake,
Or a repeating ache,
I wonder what I will do?

If I just can’t make a choice,
There’s nothing to fret about;
But then the change inside can’t rejoice,
And sprout…

When was it? What happened?
That time you said it was no good
And you wanted it all to end;
If it only could…

What was it? And who was it?
That once again made you think that somehow
You must commit,
To move on from now…

To you, yeah,
Yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I believe in you,
And you believe in me…

For you, yeah,
Yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I feel like I could soar through the sky…
If it’s just for you, I’ll always try…

progress

Lost in simple days, there’s much I didn’t know,
In memories from long ago
Now I understand how hard life can be,
When there’s more that I’m able to see…

I don’t mean to say that I ever wanted to,
Return to the place that I once knew
Deep in my heart, I yearn for a song,
Telling me that I was right all along

The same events I share with you,
The same beliefs we have for the future, too
Yesterday’s tears and today’s happiness,
In the end, are part of life’s test

The same pain both of us understand,
The same kindness leads us to lend out a hand
Forming into strength, we mend our sorrow,
To live on into tomorrow

In that far-off place, walking through the endless night,
Everything I did was an internal fight
As if the deeds I worked so hard on,
Could change the person I’d become…

I must wonder if my heart felt driven
Solely ‘cause I want to be forgiven
For the past that I couldn’t face,
The past that I tried so hard to erase

The days of freedom we thought would last,
Are lost to us and thrown back into the distant past
The days we spent wrapped in innocent bliss,
Are forever banished with a kiss…

All we can do is persist and press on,
Every step taken works forward towards a new dawn
All we have is held inside of our hearts,
The strength to believe is never far apart…

Hey, the two of us,
We’ve lived with our simple needs, not a fuss
We don’t need much more
So we can spread our wings and soar

The same events I share with you,
The same beliefs we have for the future, too
Yesterday’s tears and today’s happiness,
In the end, are part of life’s test

The same pain both of us understand,
The same kindness leads us to lend out a hand
Forming into strength, we mend our sorrow,
To live on into tomorrow…
