Love Myself

I wanna get high with the angels, and never come back down. But the devil is a downer, and keeps me on the ground.

I wanna sing aloud for you, but air I must conserve. So here I go sit inside this cage, and hum like I'm a bird.

I wanna tell my story, yet cannot speak the words. Cause what I really have to say is painful and it hurts.

I wanna make amends, and maybe even right my wrongs. So I must travel to the past in order to move on.

I wanna surpass darkness, it's all I've kept inside. So that way I can reach the stars, and fill myself with light.

I wanna go back home but know I cannot find my way. So I must build new bridges, if I want to leave this place.

I wanna tell you secrets, and cover up the lies. So that way when you know the truth, you'll open up your eyes.

I wanna find the cure, and really help out all of my friends. So maybe I can save them from themselves when they give in.

I wanna take the poison, so you don't lose your life. Cause I know you're too young to die, and want you to survive.

I wanna teach you lessons, so you can learn from trust. So that way when the world is ours, I know you won't give up.

I wanna say I'm stronger, yet fighting back the tears. I'm thankful that I'm still alive, and conquered all my fears.

I wanna say I'm sorry, for living life so fast. It's almost if I knew somehow the good times wouldn't last.

I wanna leave a legacy, but first I must confess. For everything I've done when I was young, and such a mess.

I wanna be a lesson, for those who've lost their way. Cause maybe then they'll be okay and have a little faith.

I wanna get to know you, please let me in your mind. I'll never leave you lonely, and stay right by your side.

I wanna give forgiveness, I've taken more than most. So that way when I earn my wings, I'll fly to the unknown.

I wanna confess daily, for being such a clown. Cause even though I made you laugh, I know I let you down.

I wanna be the hero, yet cannot save your soul. But if I had the chance to, I would give the one I own.

I wanna love you dearly, but first must love myself. I know I'll get to heaven, because all I've known is hell.
