Yeah you with the heavy heart
The one carrying the world on your shoulders
I know you're familiar with my tone because it's at the same frequency as yours
You think your soul is withered because it's been here before
Your mind is racing and even though it's familiar it all feels new
You think you're crazy but you know you're right
Being wrong is out your character and you would rather embarrass yourself then walk blindly another moment
Perhaps you blame yourself for things you know are out of your control
You're probably alone but everyone you ever loved is on your mind and in your heart.
You can't sleep because you're looking for the solution and the answer is so close but always found with another question
Your words are poetic and sound like something from a song
You're not led by your conscious because it is led by your empathy
You want to be good and do good but you rarely feel good
Enough is never enough
Your heart is on your sleeve and forgiveness comes without question
I just wanted you to know that I see you
You're not alone
