  • What’s keeping me here?
    What negative do I hear?
    If I was really to tear
    myself away would a tear
    fall on my on my face where
    I’d usually wear
    Wake up.

    What if I stayed out of sight
    as I searched for a new site
    or if I escaped in the night
    as an exiled white knight
    following my own light
    where I’d be lite
    and carefree?
