From now on, I'll focus eyes above the trees when years have yet to be designed with unknown lands, the eyes can't see. I can't forget what's left behind, or the weight of tears that buckled knees, but will look ahead, and set them free Scars left upon the heart grew deep and I felt the thorns that taunted me But, I'll release the ghosts and set them free to make my peace with destiny. Some tears have washed away the times, of steeper footpaths that I have climbed. I will persevere, again, regain a willingness to change the rhyme Next year has yet to be designed where eyes can see, where promise lies We can't forget what's left behind, but to all those things, let's say goodbye... and spread new wings to fly ________________________________________________________
