Some one to hold

Cold and alone

Clinging to the rumor of hope

We all need some one to hold


Sometimes we don’t get enough

Of the love we dream of



Distraught and unclothed

We all need some one to hold


It’s those we judge

Longing for skin to touch


Innocence sold

The same story gets retold

We all need some one to hold


*Thinking about those living on the streets tonight*



Today we sat on the grass by the lake

Watched boats tugging tubes

The tree hung lazily in front of our eyes

And for a moment I was lost

Because it was better than a book or a story

I witnessed life without fear

I don’t know that I felt anything

Just alive

I would have stayed longer

But there was work to be done

Delusions of grandeur

I’m haughty in my glory

Yeah I’ll admit I’m arrogant

But my egos always been fucked

It’s on one end or the other

I like it better this way

Some day I’ll find the middle ground

For now I’ll ask for your worship

Just look at where I came from

And you’ll know I deserve the acclaim

Cause’ not that long ago I was crawling

It’s delusions of grandeur

That’s fine with me

I’m my own biggest fan

I owe myself the honor

For being so hard on myself


Lord if you hear me

And if you are kind

I could use a little comfort

To ease my mind

I’m happy with progress

And the way that things are

But there’s still a black surface

Resting under the scar

I’m not the same person

Inside and out

Some things are better

Others bring doubt

I ask that you lift me

Up out of this haze

Give my life purpose

And show me your ways
