Sitting by the window, watching the life go by...
I tried to lean on my dreams, but they all have left me high n' dry.
Hope is gone now, so I say farewell my dear,
But we will meet once again, someday, somewhere.
And time is fading away, and nothing is forever,
What if life is like a chance? Like "now or never"?
Walking away from the crowd, that swallows everything,
It blindfolds my life, and leaves me with nothing.
But outside don't haunt me, I don't Duck n' Run!
Hopes, fears and strengths in me, prefer the moon than the sun.
But I'm loosing myself though, my Individuality is at stake,
I've been consumed by hatred n' anger, I've got to change for Heaven's sake.
Empty days to lonely nights and lonely night to the empty day,
I know for sure, if I don't change, I am gonna die this way.
And forgiveness, your highness...I am a sinner, my life is a mess,
I'm just lost in here, but give me a sign, I can do the rest.
In between expectations and acceptations, I let the wind carry me;
Time greets me once again, as I search for Peace within Me.
