Some Place

I went to a place I haven't been in years

As I walked my eyes filled with tears

I could see my ghost walk

Through everything as I watched

I realized that I'd changed

All most nothing had stayed the same

As I stared I felt something inside me break

It was almost more than I could take

I know it was then

that my heart would break again

At last my soul tears again

They say life is a race
why hasn't it ended

Their life is a game
I know I not winning

If life is a church
I can't hear the bell

If pain is a prison
I know why am stuck In my cell
