The Song Spinning in My Head

Begin Again

I wanna find my way
Find my way back home
And I wanna learn to love
And I want to be known

’cause I wanna tell you how
But there’s no good metaphor
Knocking at my door

So will you help me friend?
Help discover this new world
Don’t quite know where to begin
But I imagine it on the horizon

Light is breakin’ through
Still I don’t know what to do
Standing here just me and you

And you know that I would run if the wind would call me
And I would rise, but it seems I’m falling
And I just need a place now to begin…to begin
So I can begin again

So do we just start right here
Or go back to the same square one
Isn’t that my biggest fear
That I’ll miss it when it comes?

’cause I don’t know what to do
Is this Kingdom even comin’ through?
Still I hope it might be true

’cause from everything I see
The biggest problem still seems to be me
And for all the ways the world is shit
There is so much beauty in all of it

But I can’t seem to find
The very thing that haunts my mind
Could it mean that I’m still blind?

And you know that I would see if you’d wash my eyes
But I keep swallowin’ the same old lies
And I just need a place now to begin…to begin
So I can begin again

Is it true? Or is it fantasy?
What is real? Is it mere chemistry?
And where is home? Some place I can’t be?
Is it real? Or is it just my own delusion?

’cause you know that I want to believe you now
But I’ve lost my way somehow
And I just need a place now to begin…

To begin to see that I can find my way home my friend
And I just might, but until then
I just need some space now to begin…to begin
So I can begin again
