song for this week

Where am I today? I wish that I knew,
‘Cause looking around there’s no sign of you.
I don’t remember one jump or one leap–
Just quiet steps away from your lead.

I’m holding my heart out, but clutching it too.
Feeling this short of a love that we once knew.
I’m calling this home when it’s not even close,
Playing the role with nerves left exposed.

Standing on a darkened stage
Stumbling through the lines
Others have excuses,
But I have my reasons why.

We get distracted by the dreams of our own
But nobody’s happy while feeling alone
And knowing how hard it hurts when we fall
We lean another ladder against the wrong wall

And climb high to the highest rung
To shake fists at the sky
While others have excuses
I have my reasons why

With so much deception
It’s hard not to wander away
It’s hard not to wander away
It’s hard not to wander away
