So hate me for being a little rough around the edges,
But that's the way I like it.
I like the ragged look- the truth torn to pieces,
And the lies see through.
That's what I've been through-
That's how I know you.
I keep running and running,
I'm wearing thin.
The ones I know- they know too.
I like to feel a challenge-
I like to look the way I am.
I like to feel the rush, so I keep running-
I keep my borders singed and my dreams keep me floating away.
There are holes in my soul and scars on my heart,
But I wouldn't have it any other way.
This is how I know to live, every day running away,
Only living in the moment.
I won't let life bring me down again-
I'll find a way to what I want, oh how I want it more than ever.
I'll do anything to reach my stars-
I'll let the wind pass under my holes to lift me higher-
So high I'm not coming down.
I'm like a picture of abstract colors,
With the black around the edges-
The tears in the corners from being ripped down so many times,
But I've never felt more alive than I do now.
