Stories


Could have been a simple task figuring this life out
Could have been done research in so many other ways
Could have chosen a couple of different questions to ask
Spared myself for never ending stories

But then again, I wouldn't have come across
Those who taught me about loss
And about not wasting time fearing the what ifs
And so I wouldn't have come to terms with my paranoia for being stood up
For letting down, and not reaching the point of what is

Does this sound like something I've said before?
Is this somehow familiar to you?
Going down the road just find more beginnings around the bend
More stories to go through

Alright
Getting rid of old time anger now and it feels like
I am alright
Alright
Putting things back into place and now it does feel like
I am alright

Would have been a big mistake to stop before I started
Would have been the silky smooth but oh so unhappy way
Now would have fit right into being the beauty without a beast
What is safety if there is nothing to be safe from?

Is it protection from something, which is created from within?
Hide and seek will at some point end with game over
And so it's better to come to terms with the fact that you might not win, that you might lose, but to whom – with whom are you playing?

Does this sound like something I've said before?
Stories do not disappear just because they are recognized or admitted true

 Alright
Getting rid of old time anger now and it feels like
I am alright
Alright
Putting things back into place and now it does feel like
I am alright
