If only...

Stood on a mountain
Could hardly breathe
Sky above
Full of love
I couldn't reach

The world below
So far away
Took a lifetime
To realize
I couldn't stay

Choices we make
Haunt us
Voices we hate
Taunt us
Memory
Ain't the enemy
It's us

Put on a pedestal
I spoke up
Tasting words
So bitter
I threw up

Circumstances
Out of control
Better to roll
With the punches
Who knows

Choices we make
Haunt us
Voices we hate
Taunt us
Memory
Ain't the enemy
It's us

Stood on a mountain
Now I see
The world below
Is a fallacy
Full of hope
