Have to stay strong

Open the door to my heart

You will see the light is off

Canít find the switch, my heart is a loft

That no one is venturing into.


Ignore me then, so what if it hurts me and its hurting me.

If my heart is a boat

Then it is struggling to stay afloat

On a treacherous sea.


Donít feel strong today

Feel like Iím watching life pass me by

Better not cry

Got to feel strong today.


My faith is flickering like candles

Burning holes in my heart

Wish I could go back to the start

And be naÔve again.


So what if it hurts me and youíre hurting me

Want to hold my head up but you make me look down

Youíve turned my smile into a frown Ė

Broken smashed up heart.


Donít know where I fit in, feel like the missing piece of a jigsaw

Made up of a million different astounding colours, struggling to find my place

Canít hide the hurt in my face

Trying to catch up with life.


This is the restless longing of youth

A story of a heart longing to be loved

Looking up above

But thereís no answer.


Iím not a ghost so donít look through me

Iím not an illusion so donít pretend you canít see me

Iím not beneath you so donít look down at me

Iím not a bad person so donít look away from me.


Mirror gaze tormenting me in the storm of life

Have to keep faith even when the wind blows the candle out

Have to keep my eyes up in this life full of doubt

Have to stay strong.
