Why is it

When I'm alone

I can't think of anything

But when it's too late

And I have a smile

My mind flows everywhere

I just don't get it

I don't understand

What I am feeling

What this heart of mine (is trying to say)

I wanna know

I wanna feel

But I must understand

The world myself

Before I leap

Before I take a chance

Of setting my heart on things

That I don't understand

I want a purpose

I want a need

A need to survive

A need just to need

Understanding myself

Is my main priority

But sooner or later

I'll need somebody

But I'll wait

Till the time is right

I'll think things over

To myself and fight

I need to breathe

I need to think

What my plans for now

I need to smile

I need to see

Everything in front of me

I've done everything I can

For myself and for the world around

Hope it's enough for me to understand

Everything and everyone

That's all I want to be able to do
