Name of Song: Remnants of my lifetimes

I am I am I am a piece of earlier,
I am I am I am a part of time,
Never thinking much about what I did do,
Always thinking should I be more kind.

I can’t imagine being what I am not,
I can’t imagine doing what I don’t,
But I have something now that I must tell you,
I sometimes feel I’ve become what I said I won’t.

Chorus
I can’t explain the torment deep inside me,
It’s speaks so loud but others walk on by,
It beckons me to always do the opposite,
It’s made of blame and guilt and I don’t know why.
Remnants of my lifetimes cloaked in mirrors,
Mirrors that confuse and misdirect,
Collapsing past emotions into my present,
Leaving me now wondering where I am.
