    Let me hold your fears
    Let me dry your tears
    Let me be there till your vision clears
    Let me hug you through all that sears
    And till all pain disappears

    Let me map out your stars
    See them blaring through your scars
    Let me soothe a crease
    Let me put you at ease
    And loosen your lease

    Constantly pushing through
    Against the borders of this house
    Trying to find new ways to look at you
    Since you're never constant
    And I'm not either
    So it's easy and difficult at the same time
    Cause we're expected to be habitual
    But programmed to evolve
    How do we balance?
    Between the two opposites of dynamics and statics?
    How can we accept?
    Told to be stable, but constantly changing nevertheless
    How can we break free?
    Cause we're tied to our fundament built by expectations and our need for self
    But we cannot script ourselves
    So we cling to the past and we worry for the future
    Cause tomorrow it can all change

    I can feel the air through my nose
    As I breathe in and out my mind in a doze
    I gently shut my eyes
    And spring arises
    And I can hear quiet
    There is no riot
    And I can hear silence
    There is balance
    I hear nothing
    And it's colourful flowers blushing
    It's melodious birds chirping
    It's playful dogs barking
    It's a cool river on a hot summer day
    And so I feel my mind hit a gentle sway
    Because there's life and there's decay
    And one day I will be silence
    And earth will continue to balance
    Even though I am forever absent

    I've been struggling lately
    Been worrying slightly
    The trees might be green
    And the sunshine might even gleam
    But I've been dreaming
    My mind screaming
    What if you disappear
    Away into the hemisphere
    What if you went missing
    And all I'm left with is reminiscing
    Of lost moments
    What if my dreams are omens
    What if they're grieving
    That you're actually leaving
    And what will I do
    Without you
    Cause I've been thinking
    Since everyone's shrinking
    But what can they do?
    Compared to you
    Not a single soul
    Is as whole
    As yours
    I'd like to love someone
    Like I love you
    But there's no one
    Not even a single soul
    Like yours

    We're separated
    Even though the snow has slowly evaporated
    The earth is filled with sunlit spaces
    But the city is left alone in crowdless mazes

    We're left to ourselves
    In our own little cells
    Searching for that glimpse of spring
    Longing for past anything
    Isolated from distraction
    In fear of contraction

    We're naked
    Because we realize we're faded
    Humans with no cause
    Now that our daily lives hit pause
    We're left alone to think
    Watching our lives as we blink
    Watching our innards unravel
    And we might realize we contain nothing but gravel

    Hopefully we're evolving
    And we can heal from resolving
    Emerge as a better being
    Become someone seeing
    Attain a reflected inner mind
    Become someone true and kind
    Instead of cruel and blind

    I aspire instantly
    And so I spiral constantly
    Downward pressure on my shoulders
    And I can feel it getting colder
    Cause I can't find a way through
    And I can't find a way out
    I'm stuck in this dumb roundabout
    And I own every piece
    But sometimes I would rather be deceased
    Than live another day of my life
    I live in a perfect circle
    Half light, half dark
    Half summer, half winter
    And every season leaves a mark
    I'm getting sick of this ride
    Wears me out with every stride
    Hollow laughter echoes
    My world is colourless
    The warmth of yesterday fades
    And I slowly become
    A shadow of last season

    I'll let you go
    Into the waters you flow
    In a fleeting moment
    I thought I was meant
    For roses and fine garments
    But I guess I'll look again
    And search for that fiery flame

    Did I just lock it all away?
    Did I just lead myself astray?
    Am I numbing myself into nothing?
    Is this just another cuffing?
    I can't seem to access
    The feelings I had in excess
    I want to feel them in their true form
    So why are they passing in a fading storm?
    I need to bring them up and about
    And I search for them like scout
    Scavenging my mind
    For any sort of sign
    But all I can find is an anxious self
    And I thought I had found wealth
    I thought I had found love
    But now that I look up above
    There's still so much to be done
    There's still much to overcome
    I guess I'll go over it again
    To see if I can see through the stain

    Can they all tell?
    By the way I fell?
    As a tree cut to the ground
    As a piece of trash left at the compound
    No longer to be found
    And silence makes no sound
    I'm nowhere near where I used to be
    Can they all see?
    That I've completely disappeared
    Broken into tiny pieces just as I feared

    I'll say farewell to you
    But you're one of the few
    And I'm sorry I had to let you go
    But I'm a fleeting doe
    Sometimes there, sometimes not
    Sometimes far away , sometimes easy to spot
    I wish you well
    I hope amongst happy memories you dwell
    I hope you find what you're looking for
    I'll store you in my heart before I go
    And let myself quietly out the door
