Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda, Kinda

by Cantchangeme   Dec 5, 2016

Kinda shoulda tried so much harder
Pushed through every razor
Walked on from every bad and cloudy day
Never shoulda ran from the shadows
Never hidden from the monsters
Never begged, never trembled, never prayed

Maybe coulda bled a little longer
Took the bullets for my family
Stood up to the storm and not ran away
Always been there for my sisters
Protected all my brothers
Coulda cared, coulda tried, shoulda stayed

Maybe woulda stood up to the Reaper
Took his hands off others shoulders
Never seen so many friends go to their graves
Tonight the sea's are filled monsters
The past is dark and full of terrors
Every time I dream I drown beneath those waves
