so lost

I'm a step away from prison
For what I've done wrong
I've been down this path
For way too long

I get so depressed
And feel so lost
I need to change
No matter the cost

I wish I had a girl
By my side
So I won't be alone
For this ride

It gets so lonely
Being alone
All day I wish someone
Would just call my phone

It's hard to find someone
When you are shy
All they do
Is pass you by

I was in love once
But she broke my heart
I don't know if I can fix it
For its ripped apart

I need to change though
But I wish I had a girl
Then instead of depression
I would have a thrill
