When You Need Me

The days pass by
and you think nothing is changing.
But while you're thinking,
the whole world is rearranging.
Take a look,
the world hasn't turned its back.

But your heart keeps stopping,
and the world keeps turning.
Your dreams have shattered,
but you keep learning.
Hold your chin up,
you know I'll stand by you.

Holding on isn't easy
when you're hanging on the edge.
I'll be here when you're ready,
don't fall off of the ledge.
I can lift you up
anytime you want me to.

What's Wrong With Me

I'm hearing voices in my sleep,
waiting for some answers
when all I hear are questions.
I'm feeling like I'm headed
for a breakdown.
How did I lose my mind?

When did I begin
correcting myself in public?
I'm tired of looking away,
dodging glances in the street
for no reason.
Who were they,
and who did I used to be?

I hear them whisper my name,
and it makes me think
that there must be something
wrong with me.
I've spent so many hours thinking
that somehow I've lost my mind.
Where did my life go?

No one knows what it's like
to be on the edge of breaking down.
Can anyone pull me back
after I've started to jump?
I've been out of the shadows so long,
I can't remember who I was.
How can I find my way?
