lyrics

Within Me

It’s hard to go on when you’re stuck where you don’t belong.
As much as you try to fit in, you find yourself wearing thin.
I stand all alone and I say out to the cold night air,
I hope there’s an open or reserved place waiting for me elsewhere.

Time never moves quick enough when you need it to.
Instead it laughs in your face as it rolls on at a snail’s pace.
So I close my eyes and put my head down to make time feel sorry for me.
But I know too well, it has no sympathy.

And I think to myself what the hell am I doing here?
I should be out having a blast and making it last, but I’m not.
I guess I could blame myself, but that wouldn’t be fair.
It’s not my fault that there’s nothing to do, no one to see,
nothing for me.

I'm tired and worn.
It's like a dull pain moving through my core
keeping my will on the floor.

I need some motivation, some inspiration,
to get me out of this depressing situation,
but this place sucked out that positive feeling
and left me with this emptiness that resides within me.

And I think to myself what the hell am I doing here?
I should be out having a blast and making it last, but I’m not.
I guess I could blame myself, but that wouldn’t be fair.
It’s not my fault that there’s nothing to do, no one to see,
nothing for me.

I've got to believe
it’s just a matter of time before I can see
what’s waiting out there for me.

I need some motivation, some inspiration,
to get me out of this depressing situation,
but this place sucked out that positive feeling
and left me with this emptiness that resides within me.

I need some motivation, some inspiration... (within me).
And though this place sucked out that positive feeling,
I know my time will arrive and until then I will be waiting patiently.
