Another way to see(?)

See Again
(Hold On Hope, "Hope in my Backyard", 2011)



I’ve gotta find another way to go, here
I’ve gotta find another way to be
This mess of confusion, this not-coping nightmare
I cannot allow this to be me, not me

I can’t afford to lose face
I can’t afford the disgrace

Bristles to prickle the people around me
Showing them what I don’t want them to see
I see it, I know it, I can’t seem to fix it
The effort’s beyond little me, just me
But
I can’t afford to lose face
I can’t afford the disgrace

Most don’t forgive all those moments of weakness
Blame is an easy little flame to throw
Smiles hide judgments and whispers that haunt you
A hush and a coldness, silence, a no
So
I can’t afford to lose face
I can’t afford the disgrace

I’ve gotta find another way to go, here
I’ve gotta find another way to see

(well, it's better with the music in my head. fledgling.)

  1. Then it's worth any degree of embarrassment

  2. I heard the music, as I read it. I am so in the same place. Gotta find another way to go. I miss you.
