My Soul’s Awake

*Based on Katy Perry’s Wide Awake*

(My soul’s awake)
(My soul’s awake)
(My soul’s awake)
Yeah, I had my eyes closed
for awhile
and you wouldn’t even know
(My soul’s awake)
I was dead inside, oh no.
My soul’s awake.
Now realization
it hits me
I don’t think of what
(My soul’s awake)
I was doing to myself.

Now that I see
what I couldn’t see
I can take a step in.
Let me calm down.
Liar in disguise
You brought me up
Then let me fall on on, on the concrete.

Lying on cement ground.
Awakened from the light.
I’m hearing words from the High.
Yeah, I’m lying on cement ground.

(My soul’s awake)

Not feeling dead inside
I picked up what I need
And left the rest behind.
(My soul’s awake)
You wouldn’t even know, oh no, no.
(My Soul’s awake)

Yeah, God has created me
for what you didn’t see
back when I was so lost.
(I thought it late)
But it never was
the end.

Now that I see
what I couldn’t see
I can take a step in.
Let me calm down.
Liar in disguise
You brought me up
Then let me fall on on, on the concrete.

Lying on cement ground.
Awakened from the light.
I’m hearing words from the High.
Yeah, I’m lying on cement ground.

(My soul’s awake)

Storm clouds fading by.
All my walls built so high.
(My soul’s awake)
Now I’ve broke down them all.
God knows what I’ve done
helping me see the truth.
(My soul’s awake)
So, I’m no longer confused.
(My soul’s awake)

(My soul’s awake)

Yeah, lying on cement ground.
Awakened from the light.
And I am hearing words from the High.
I’m lying on cement ground.

(My soul’s awake)
(My soul’s awake)
(My soul’s awake)
(My soul’s awake)
(My soul’s awake)

I’ll Keep Your Heart Alive

You taught me how to fly.
Go beneath the sky and above the stars.
You’re always on my mind
and when you go just know
I’ll keep your heart alive.

When I was on my knees,
so lost and all confused,
you brought me to my feet.
Seeing is believign.
But you brought me hope
when all I had were scars.
And this songs for you.

You taught me how to fly.
Go beneath the sky and above the stars.
You’re always on my mind
and when you go just know
I’ll keep your heart alive.

When I was flying low,
so miserable and lone,
your love was all I had.
I’m dreaming for something.
But you brought me hope
when all I had were doubts.
And this songs for you.

You taught me how to fly.
Go beneath the sky and above the stars.
You’re always on my mind
and when you go just know
I’ll keep your heart alive.

You didn’t know it then,
I’m sure of this.
But every passing day
I thought of you.
You taught me to see the stars.
Don’t mind what people say.
It’s all okay.
You’re beautiful the way you are
even if the words sound so far.
It is still in my heart.
And because of you
my heart is still beating.
So here’s to you:

You taught me how to fly.
Go beneath the sky and above the stars.
You’re always on my mind
and when you go just know.
I’ll keep your heart alive.

Yeah, it’s something I can’t deny,
feeling low, still reaching to the stars.
Knowing I can confide.
And when you go just know.
I’ll keep your heart alive.

I’ll keep your heart alive
with every single step I take.
You’re always on my mind
and when you go just know
I’ll keep your heart alive.

Oh…

I’ll keep your heart alive.

Today I Made A Wish

I’ve been wishing, hoping
But it never comes around.
I’ve been crying, trying
To live every second.

Today, I made a wish.
My hopes, my plans.
Wrote them all down
And buried it in the ground.
Today, I made a wish.
Don’t forget it.

It’s been confusing life
But I just keep holding on.
It’s been overwhelming
To never have you.

Today, I made a wish.
My hopes, my plans.
Wrote them all down
Buried it in the ground.
Today, I made a wish.
Don’t forget it.

I’ve been sitting, waiting.
I’ve been dreaming, pleading.
When will my wish come true…

Yeah…

Today, I made a wish.
Today, I made a wish.

Oh,

Today, I made a wish.
My hopes, my plans.
Wrote them all down.
Buried it in the ground.
Today, I made a wish
And I won’t forget this day.

Today, I made a wish.
My hopes, my plans.
Buried them deep
And today my wish
Just might come true.

Whatever It Takes

Dear me,
I haven’t written a poem
In quite awhile.
Dear me,
Nothing seems uplifting to me.
I’m always bored. Can’t find anything amusing.
Feeling like I’m so distracted.
I don’t know what to do.
Writings been my only friend.
Just not these days…
Am I in the wrong place?
So I take a pen and paper.
Really think of words I could
write.
Hoping loneliness degrades
And the time would pass by.
But the feeling just creeps in
And there’s just no words to
express.
I’m feeling weak.
So out of touch with this world.
Memories fade.
What I’ve done becomes so vague.
I’ve given up.
I don’t know how to keep moving on.
Cross that line.
Climb that tree.
Whatever to get to the other side.
The other side where I’ll find who I really am.

They’re Calling

Lay down.
Close your eyes.
I don’t want to.
For when I do
I hear them calling;
Calling for you.
I fear it is your time;
Time to leave this world.

I’m not ready;
Ready to let go of you.
So when I close my eyes
I fear them calling.

It’s not
It’s not the first time
I’ve felt them calling.
And I know
It won’t be the last.
I’m scared
Any minute you may leave.
I’m sorry
For being selfish.

But I’m not ready;
Ready to let go of you.
So when I close my eyes
I fear them calling.

You helped me.
You’re always there.
How can I say goodbye;
Goodbye to you?

And I’m not ready;
Ready to let go of you.
So when I close my eyes
I fear them calling.

They’re calling for you.

Without A Trace

You’re so vague in my memories.
If I tell you face to face,
You wouldn’t know what I’m saying.
I remember your funeral,
But those other days are without a trace.
They all have their memories, but
I’m left in the darkness. I
Hear stories about you and me.
Sounded so close, yet distant.
To me those days are just without a trace.
And if I could bring you back now,
I don’t know what to tell you.
You wouldn’t know what I’m saying.
I remember you distant.
But those other times are without a trace.
