When it just seems that life means no more,
When it just seems you cant take another step,
You just wish you could embrace a lion’s roar
You just wish you could get some help.
Sometimes it seems so wrong to do what you like
Sometimes it really feels guilty to be who you are
You just wish to ride on a stallion’s might
You just wish you were not where your heart is marred
The world is cruel just to live in
Which makes the fantasy a better place
But nay, you cant lie to your within
So leave the battlefield with grace!
Sometimes it seems so hard to move on
Sometimes it seems so tough to pursue
You wish that all your troubles were gone
And you wish to begin a life anew…
You reach out to an untouchable dream
Impossible to grasp or to even feel
Sometimes the end of path is so dim
And it seems the way out is concealed
When you need something to guide you right
Sometimes you wish there is a guiding star
You search high and low for a star so bright
But it is impossible in times of war.
At times you have a battle with your within
And there comes a time when you won none
You find you’re weakened and your pride limping
You wish there is someone to hold on…
Even if you dive for the treasures of the sea
Even if tears of blood you would cry,
Destiny and fate shall not change any,
Even if the whole world you choose to defy.
Sometimes it seems your past is haunting
With your inner self you are battling
But each second you are weakening
And in the battle you’re losing…
A superior power comes into sight,
Destroying all form of threats,
With His might He would fight
With His love He would protect.
Once again the strength is your own,
And your pride is in control
Once again you are not alone
Knowing that you He shall hold.
Hard as it is to endure the tortures of life
Finally you’re no longer left in the cold,
Slowly as you are starting to revive,
Gaining strength as the mysteries unfold
