Someday I’ll wish upon a star and
wake up where the clouds are far behind me ~~~ E.Y. Harburg

Step 1

Stay away, no… come closer.

I can’t decide.

I’ll wake up soon,

The world will be still,

I’ll breathe again.

Step 2

Left out here on my own,

To piss off the world.

I’d love to throw these stones,

But they’ll come hurling back,

Bruising me deeper with each collision.

Step 3

I’ll take the blame,

Whatever you need.

No more words drowning out the music,

No more impulses that can’t be controlled,

Just… stay.

Step 4

Just leave, go away,

I should always be alone.

The waves are so high,

They’ll crash on me soon,

Over and over and over.

Step 5 

It’s not brave to accept the inevitable,

There’s nothing poetic in letting go.

Giving up isn’t acceptance,

Caving in isn’t relief,

I’m not so… delicate. 

…  and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true. ~~~ E.Y. Harburg
