Journey Down This Road
The Wheels Are Turning in My Mind. Don't Want to Leave But I Might This Time
When I Look Into the Mirror. . . All I See Is Me. . .And I'm Scared as I Can Be
I'm not afraid of being alone
Still it would be nice
To fully bare my soul
As I journey down this road
But to let someone truly get that close
Oh, how it always comes with a price
It becomes a burden just to know
Then I have guilt and am still alone
Fear takes hold with its icy grip
Never before indecisive about things like this
Take the risk - just jump on in
Either sink or swim
Sinking does not mean dying
It simply means trying
But it is not for myself that I am afraid
And I wonder do I really have what it takes?
Where is the time for just being me?
Everybody else always seems to need
And there are always bills to meet
Desperately needing some alone time
But I've got to keep my cool, gotta keep that smile
When will it ever end, this trial?
I'm Gonna Take That Mountain. . .If You Think This Heartache's Gonna Break My Will. . .
Words written so very long ago, yet worth declaring again. . .
Gotta make my plans a reality
Gotta make my dreams come true
I don't need nobody telling me
What I can and cannot do
I'm gonna reach for the stars
Gonna climb that mountain high
I will reach within my heart
Find out who I am inside
And if I miss when I jump
I will have true peace of mind
When I pick myself back up
Just knowing that I tried
In the words of Martina. . .
Life is a roller coaster ride
Time turns the wheel and love collides
Faith is believing you can close your eyes and touch the sky
To shine while you have the chance to shine
Laugh even when you want to cry
Hold on tight to what you feel inside and ride
