Sometimes my mind goes a million miles a second
Like I might die the next breath
Sometimes my body won't stop moving
I don't want to miss a minute of this life

Sometimes my eyes see only darkness
But mostly the light shines through
Sometimes I think about that 9 to 5
But I realize that I've found something true

Oh what are we doing here?
Can we ever find that place in our mind
What keeps us from living
Living the life we want to live

Sometimes your heart plays tricks on you
And your vision gets clouded up with hate
Sometimes that water seems to cold to touch
Just dive head first it's never too late


Is it love is it doubt
Is it things you want to shout out?
But you can't cuz you're scared
You don't want to be found out

Is it places or faces
Situations you can't stand?
It's too much
It's not enough
Just give yourself a hand and let go
