C Train

9 am on the C train
Holding on, squeezing in

trying to fit in
Grab the bag, hold the pole, take control
Holding on to what's left
Holding on to the dream

Living the delusion
Feelings and confusion
It's never what it once was
It's never what it will be

Found a place for myself
In your arms no one else
How have I done wrong
How was I so wrong

Alone in my head
The chill in my bed
And my heart feeling sad
Breaking
Once again

Broken

Your shoes in the rack
Nothing but a token
Words unspoken
Left me with a wound open
Bleeding

Trying to face my feelings
Facing the ultimate rest
Uneasy
Facing the test

It's all about you and none of the rest
It's all for you for my life to relax
To keep actions in check
To stop words from causing distress
