My Simple Choice

Simple choices

Quick releases of pain

Some forgotten with yesterday's sun

Others lingering in regret

Everyone else…everyone…everyone

Everyone can't know this dread

And face it like it's nothing

This is the only release

This is the only release

Hold me back…hold me back…hold me…back

Take this away from me

If it's wrong, then don't let me be

So unafraid, yet so fearful

So thrilled yet so ashamed

Take this away…take it away…take it away

My simple choice

Was to fall into the background

Pretend I didn't have these feelings

So I wouldn't have to think

So I wouldn't have to think

Silenced voices

So much to loose and gain

How can this happen to everyone

Yet make me so upset

Everyone…everyone…else

I can't believe what she said

I want this to be something

Can't be my release

Can't be my release

Hold me back…keep holding…keep holding

I should be ashamed to be me

Don't let me be lonely

So joyous, yet so tearful

So wild, yet so tamed

Take this away…take me away…take…

My simple choice

Was to fall into the background

Pretend I didn't have these feelings

So I wouldn't have to think

So I wouldn't have to think

Simple choices

So much to loose and gain

Some forgotten with yesterday's sun

Make me so upset

With everyone…everyone…everyone

Silenced voices

Quick releases of pain

How can this happen to everyone

Lingering in regret

For everything…everything…I've done

My simple choice

Was to fall into the background

Pretend I didn't have these feelings

So I wouldn't have to think

So I wouldn't have to be
