Don't Want to Let Go

by Valerie   Apr 24, 2005


Holding onto everything
not wanting to let go
don't want to face the truth
letting all the lies show

Too much living in the past
never to look ahead
at night going to sleep
forever wishing to stay in bed

I must declare right now
I'm a casualty of this war
internally fighting myself
trying to find a core

detesting change
doesn't help this cause
I need frozen time
I need a stillful pause

Things happen to quickly
why such a rush?
Hold on for a second
to cure sorrow's mistrust

I guess I don't have the power
to keep the world from turning
I'll have to do my best
to keep this fire burning

I can't lose the passion
I need to find some truth
but I want to prevent heartache
and other mistakes of youth

I'm letting go of everything
protesting all the way
I have to face the facts
I will...eventually...someday
