Today every person is trying hard
Trying to get by with that one heart
That heart, that soft part of their core
Has been mushed, stretched and torn apart
But it still insists on beating
It still precipitates warmth
Even though all that surrounds it are icicles
Why? Oh, Why, Is that so?
Wonders can’t break that brave soul..
Where did the courage come from
Strength for it to go on
How don’t you fall apart
How is it that you are standing tall
I want to ask, I want to ask!
They turn around and say
Outside we are tall, inside a mere shadow
Outside we are brave, inside hollow
That warmth you are speaking of
Is nothing but the smoke
Of the hurt that doesn’t want anyone else to hurt
The urge to protect is instant
Cause we know pain
Even if the cause is not the same
You ask and you ask
But what do we say?
The soul is not brave
But it knows it has to stay
So get up and start
Take one day at a time
And start stepping
Fight your demon
And then start walking
Then you will be the one standing tall
As million you see in us all.
