Album
Name of Song: As myself

I see everything like you,
In front and beside,
Consciously reminding
I’m myself deep inside.

Why even say this,
Sounds sorta weird,
But you know those pressures
that grind off our years.

Our present is calm,
A solace for those,
Who still can remember
our home we all chose.

Chorus
I act as myself,
Must constantly remind,
To act as myself and
not pieces of my mind.
Personal purity,
It’s all about self,
Not just a saying
as there seems nothing else.

Bridge
Many bridges to nowhere,
Roads that invite,
Thinking there’s hope
to regain one’s own might.
But then when you get there,
It’s not what you thought,
Well, it’s never the road
You just forgot your own self.

You remember those bridges,
And their roads that invite,
Thinking there’s hope
to regain your own might.

I know when you get there,
sometimes not what you thought,
It’s never the road
You just forgot your own self.

So many bridges,
And their roads that invite,
Thinking there’s hope
to regain your own might.

And sadly you get there,
Doesn’t feel like yourself,
It’s never the road
And you’re not someone else.
