Sometimes I just need to get in my car
To lock the doors
And drive somewhere far.
So I keep driving and driving…
Sometimes I want to sleep all day
Wrapped up in my blanket
Wishing the world away.
So I keep sleeping and sleeping…
Sometimes I want to shout and scream
At the top of my lungs
I want to let of some steam.
So I keep screaming and screaming…
Sometimes I want to sit alone
In peace and quiet
And turn off my phone.
So I keep sitting and sitting…
Sometimes I can’t handle feeling so deflated
Waiting to be acknowledged
To feel appreciated.
So I keep hoping and waiting…
