I’m falling at the speed of light
Nothing to do….to make this right
Confused, unsure , I’m in the dark
Alone….amidst such hungry sharks.

Lost my grip, just out of reach
Abandoned on this sandy beach
The morning tide…. a brand new day
Somehow I’ve got to find a way.

All the lies …. the alibis
The reasons we should say goodbye
But, can’t give in …. no matter what
I’ve got to make this madness stop.

Battered, beaten …. ridiculed
Feeling like a worthless fool
Overlooked … pushed aside
All night long …. I cried and cried.

Holding on …. so hard… so tight
I can’t let go….no not tonight
The thought of letting go of you
Too much for me…. too much to lose.

The battle’s on…. the war is waged
I’m terrified …. yes, I’m afraid
Weapons drawn …. shields in place
The game is on …. no time to waste.

Pick your poison…. stake your claim
Someone has got to take the blame
Stand your ground.. don’t bend, you’ll break
Don’t let them see you sweat or shake.
