Relive This Again

Downtown, the wind gusts It's starting to rain I’ve walked this whole city, still nothing I gained Protected by a small coat and the shoes on my feet No place I ain’t seen, no street I can’t name I’ve been straight to the ends of the earth Almost fell off the edge, have yet to find my worth So I climbed up the cliff Put myself up the ledge Tried to restart my life But I’m cut by the knife Drowning here in this rain Every drops burning pain Do I have to relive this again? The day has now flown It’s time to walk home I’m safe in my dome To control my own fate But the wind picks up speed My shelters blowing away Try to put back the pieces But none of them stay Now I’ve got to rebuild Start my new work from scratch I can’t make the ends match How long must it take till I can live in peace and I can give up the fight When all that I’ve done won’t be gone in one night Do I have to relive this again? Moving forward the month is july All I see is the sun and blue sky The rays are burning my skin I’ve been forced to migrate up north To find a nice cooled down inn So I head up, had to travel barefoot Up and over 18 hills I went dry Just a beverage or 2 would be nice I followed the map, but the inn wasn't there I found myself lost out in the land of nowhere I had to retrace all my steps Does anyone Care? My life, it has flown Had to go back to what I had already known Do I have to relive this again?
