Someone Else's Life

I exhale my breath
Open my eyes
I look around me
I see the silver of the fence
Lining runners on the track
And I know I can't be here

I open up my book
Read words that I have written
And I know that it's not me
It can't be

I feel like I've lived a life that isn't mine
I'm breathing in oxygen
That wasn't made for me
I think I'm living
Someone else's life.

I inhale my breath
Close my eyes
I see the high school
at the bottom of the hill
And I know I can't be here

I close my memory window
And listen to what's going on
I'm listening to screaming music
Hard guitars without pink bunnies
And I know this isn't me.
It can't be.

I feel like I've lived a life that isn't mine
I'm breathing in oxygen
That wasn't made for me
I think I'm living
Someone else's life.

The smell of crayons is fading
And everything's changing...
I know the life I've lived
And things I've done
I see past and present swirling before me
Hope and love I want to be illuminating
But I can't through this mess I see.
And I know this can't be me...

I feel like I've lived a life that isn't mine
I'm breathing in oxygen
That wasn't made for me
I think I'm living
Someone else's life.

-I think I'm living
Someone else's life.-
