Who Is Going To Lift Me Up?

Who is going to lift me up
when there is no one here?
Who is going to talk me down
and release me from this fear?
What happened to yesterday
when I thought I held the Light?
How do I now feel so wrong...
just yesterday, I knew I was alright.

Who is going to lift me up
now that I'm so down?
Who is going to encourage me
if there is no one to be found?
How do I reach deep inside
and find my inner strength?
How do I again walk the road
and not care about its length?

Who is going to lift me up
and show me that I'm free?
When I've known all along
that the person is just me.
So what, you're down - you lost your way,
some days it is harder to see.
Slap yourself, laugh and try again.
Never too late to be what you can be.

I dig the piece and the song.

Sometimes, you do have to let go and fix your perspective so you can breathe out the toxins that's killing you. It's ok to be a little silly and life at ourselves every now and then.

Cool!
