Inside Derek

Inside Derek

Lost inside myself

Reaching out to anyone

Who might be able to save me

 

Pictures in frames change with time

Evidence of my journey

Faces of stars that weren't meant to

        GUIDE ME

 

Becoming more hopless and afraid

of never finding the way 

Never finding the path to my destiny

 

I stand outside alone at night, close my eyes

And feel something that surrounds me

It is then my spirit hears their voices

rise out of the darkness

A sigh in the trees...

 

"Our eyes are the stars that shine"

"Our love is the moonlight that gently whispers the night"

"Our hope for you fills each glorius dawn with light"

"Our pride in all you have done, gives color to every sunset"

 

You look into the eyes of your ancestors

And realize you were on the path you were meant to take all along

No longer inside yourself, you finding your guiding stars

More beautiful than any other in the vast sky.
