When I Grow Up

Living in my troubled past
I ponder the road not taken
I thought I'd found my way at last
Only to be mistaken

The wayside holds my fallen dreams
But yet I can't turn back
That's the way it always seems
Never finding what I lack

Regret is now my shadow's name
He follows close behind
The two of us become the same
The blind leading the blind

Hope's become a foreign place
A place I cannot go
No plan to fix the things I face
I wander to and fro

"When I grow up I want to be"
These words never seemed so real
Without a purpose I didn't see
That I'd be standing still
