Try To Understand
I stood lonely in nowhere…
screaming society killed my friend!
I only used my mind to travel everywhere,
wondering if this is the closest end.
I don’t know why I got lost in this world,
why did I ever dare to take a look back?
I don’t know what does it even mean; this word,
what could I ever lose if I already have a bad luck?
[Chorus] -after all, take a deep breath,
try to hear, try to feel…
no need to pretend… please; try to understand.
I feel something deep inside that I can’t explain with lyrics,
and I have about a million ideas flying around my head.
That always remind me of the day, we were just kids,
the day; you left scars on my heart and my hand…
Do you even think about it before you leave to your dreams land?
Isn’t there anything possible to bring you around?
My mind keeps saying, forgive and forget…
but, it’s really hard to move on and getting ready to stand, all over again!
I’d climb a mountain, I’d scream… try to catch me now!
You gave me no choice only to live in my purple world,
where I hide my dreams, which never let me sleep at night…
You always were there to judge me for who I am,
trying to make me feel like I’m nothing…
don’t you know that we’ll meet each other again,
where, you’d say… why the hell she still smiling?
I think it’s time to let go, to feel happy once again,
“forever” doesn’t mean the same for me now…
I guess that I’ll spend the rest of my life singing… perfectly fine!
I’m sorry, but I’m ready to put our “everything” down.
