I am trying to make it through, day by day
And I just can’t stay bottled up inside myself

I suffered in my circled steps for far too long
I will never make the same mistakes again
It’s tearing at the seams and I can’t take it
I’m giving up my hopes until I make it
On my own

They say don’t play the victim
You brought this all on yourself
Planning ahead has never been my strong suit
But if I was given a chance to try again
I would give it all I got
I would make my time here worthwhile
And never waste a single day

“I hate to say it but I told you so”
That’s what they all say
This sinking feeling
Won’t go away

But somewhere along the line
I’ll find a place to mend my mind
But until then I’ll just stay here restless
Waiting for something, getting nothing in return

Getting nothing in return
And I’m still waiting for something more

Some say they bend then break when it’s all over
The guidelines I got made me who I am

All of this was harder than I thought
And make it worth it while you still can

Don’t toss it away like it’s not worth a thing
Make your mark and make them remember

While I am wasting away, trying to find where i fit in
