Chasing the Dream

We both play this game
But yet I’m the only one left in this shame
We all follow our dreams 
But I’m the only one stuck in the seams 

Don’t you see what you do to me 
You do everything right
But I’m always stuck in this fight
Everything looks so easy from the distance
But I’m far from chasing innocence 

I always wear my heart on my sleeve
But you always give me less reasons to believe 
With you everyone loves what they see
But I’m always chasing the dream

They say time is of the essence 
But I can never see past the present 
They say don’t be held back by fear
But every scar brings back a tear

We both play this game
But yet I’m the only one left in this shame
We all follow our dreams 
But I’m the only one stuck in the seams

I’m always haunted by my past
Seems like these blessings will never last
Inside I know that I’m not good enough for you
Inside I know it’s too good to be true

Always walking such a fine line
But never getting a sign
I long for the end to come
For a place where I truly belong 

I’m always running as fast as I can
But I’m always left in the sand
Day after day I give it my best
Yet you’re the one that’s always blessed

Don’t you see what you do to me 
You do everything right
But I’m always stuck in this fight
Everything looks so easy from the distance
But I’m far from chasing innocence

Every sigh 
Is a result of a lie
Deep inside I know I can’t do this on my own
I need to step down from my throne 
I had to learn to fall
Before I could break down these walls
I needed God to see
Life is bigger than me

We both play this game
But yet I’m the only one left in this shame
We all follow our dreams 
But I’m the only one stuck in the seams

I always wear my heart on my sleeve
But you always give me less reasons to believe 
With you everyone loves what they see
But I’m always chasing the dream
