UNDONE

Every morning
Warning signs are there to greet me
Waking
Shaking
I don't dare to face it 
Fight it 
Try and right it 
Cuz it always turns out wrong

Every feeling 
Leaves me
Reeling from the fear of falling 
Calling
Calling out for you
I need you here...
To help me calm back down again

And I'm not the way I was 
When you first loved me
And I'm not the one 
I've tried so hard to be
And I'm not the one
To stand and try to tell you
That everything
Will be alright with me 

Cuz it's not ok
I won't be fine
This war I wage inside my mind
Feels like the whole wide world is closing in
And there's nowhere to run

No, it's not ok
I won't be fine 
I've been down one too many times
No way to hide it anymore
I've come undone

----------------------------------

Everyone I see 
Reflected in their eyes 
It's always me
Hiding from the way I feel inside
And longing for the way it's always been

Every night alone 
Sinking
As I slowly turn to stone
Terrified
I'm losing you, I see
I'll soon be on my own again

Cuz I'm not the one I was 
When you first loved me
And I'm not the one 
I've tried so hard to be
And I'm not one who can lie 
And try to tell you
That everything
Will be alright with me 

Cuz it's not ok
I won't be fine
This war is raging in my mind
Feels like world is closing in
And there is just nowhere to run

No, it's not ok
I won't be fine 
I've been here one too many times
It's time to face it on my own
I've come undone

...Jeff Bresee

    Jeff, It's hard to shake the feelings and the deep undone passion that leads with no voice... sad...xox~pd
