Cry yourself to sleep
Love can’t find you
Hidden in so much unfurled
you want to keep
What could you benefit this world?
You are not your past
though you make it last
Trouble seems to awaken you
from the misery that keeps you blue
Where is the love
when your head can’t rise above
and cry it out
Why just pout it out
when you don’t know what love’s about?
Can you find your chin
when the winds of change begin?
Are you a chip off the old block
sitting, hearing, and watching the clock?
What’s it gonna take
to stop the heartbreak and tearful lake?
Have faith in yourself
before you put another on your shelf
Say what you need
and stop the reed-bleed
Are you staying in detention
of a rule of you who can’t even mention
your name at attention?
