My footsteps are weighed down by thoughts that rain

On, and suffocate my brain

They twist and taunt and ask me why

I should have done what had walked right on by

I had this chance that I didn't take

And now my world is just a mistake

There's no promise up ahead

Nor any cure for my dread

I have no protection and no immunity

As I sit in the land of my own missed opportunity

Because I was scared and timid to try

I now sit and stare glass-eyed towards a blank blue sky
