When I was a little girl

When I was a little girl 
I wanted many thing life could bring
I always wanted to see the world
I wanted to see life shine ,
I thought to myself I wanted to fly 
I wanted to see the stars shine so bright
deep into the night on the other side
maybe I expected too much ,
I watched below the thunder sky 
while I stood asking myself why
did my life bring me so much pain ?
why did life give me endless rain?
When it comes to love
 it flew away so fastly
it became to far for me to reach
oh, I started fallen fast to my feet
I felt I could no longer breath,
I knew something was wrong 
when my usually loquncious frind
didn't say a word for the longest two minutes
I could see he was worried about me
nothing seems to last 
I wanted so much to forget my past 
so I ran away into a heavy sleep  
where darken dreams came to me,
I saw so many bad things that made me scream
everytime I closed my eyes 
I would see things that wasn't nice,
I finally admitted to myself
that what I once believed in  
wasn't working for me
So, I tried something new 
something I didn't believed in ,
everything I known flew from me fast
love was too far for me to reach
life is moving way too fast
my emotions are becoming to heavy ,
when I try to forget how things really are
I make up a new story how it should be
I write all that I dream or bleed 
in my own blood stain ink
Oh, how my heart sink 
every night I would cry waterfall tears
holding so much fears
Oh, in those stormy nights I would close my eyes 
just to feel myself fly on high like a butterfly
lying underneath a big willow tree
saying my prayers to be set free 
from all the pains of a life of darken dreams.
