World, hold on

Today might be the day
It seems like a whole eternity has passed
It might be today
I’m so tired now
If only you could stop for a moment
Wander and sing in silence
So that only heaven knows what you say
If you could jump into the water
Icy to the bone, it would tell you
If only you could hear the wind’s whisper
You would know what you want the most
If you could watch and see
Everything would be so much more beautiful
Now I’m just waiting for the day
When it all starts
It might be today

Wake me up

The sun is rising,
and I only see a glow
breaking through the sleepless night.

Everything ends,
when everything starts.
Please, don’t wake me
I’m not ready yet.

The sun is setting,
and I only see a faint glimmer
breaking through my closed eyes.

Everything starts,
when everything ends.
Wake up until it’s too late.

She’s in a cage
in a safe place
away from the world
away from fear
away from everybody.
She’s in a cage
where she can live
the way she wants
Where she can live 
away from mistakes.
She lives in a cage
which is a trap
of being lonely
of staying neutral
of feeling safe.
She’s trapped in a cage
How can she go forward
when she cannot breathe
How can she fly when
she cannot spread the wings
Why should she sing
when nobody listens?
In the cage.
