Don't remember when I wrote this, but I actually really, really like it now that I read it again. It must've been last year at some point. Hope you enjoy!
I’m riding down a tunnel
On a train, shuffling on
I can’t see where the tracks lead
Close my eyes, I’m almost gone
I fall asleep, my head
Against the window glass
The rumbling of the wheels
Is soothing as we pass
The places I used to go
And all the ones I know
I left behind, only to find my way
Chasing someone else’s dreams
Through a swiftly closing door
Momentum’s running down
I can’t take much more
I thought I got just what I wanted
That was all a lie
I’m chasing someone else’s dreams
Story of my life
I left my home behind me
Hopped a plane, moved to the coast
A thousand miles away
From the one who gets me most
Who is all this even for
Cause I know it’s not for me
It doesn’t matter anymore
As the train puts me to sleep, (passing)
How could I leave it all behind?
Not even knowing what I’d find…
How could I leave you far behind?
On the whim of someone else’s mind?
