Where They Might Have Been
Time goes by, Still the same old story shows itself again, Though the faces change
Gone too soon, Leaving in tragedy, a world they barely knew
Wishing that, they could just escape the lives they’d always dreamed they’d have
Turning to, decisions that you can’t undo
They lived their lives, with one step over the edge
Without a second chance to recognize their faults
And I think that, it’s such a shame, how the lights the fame can blind the soul
Can cause someone to lose control and unwind
I stop, and I wonder
Where they might have been, what they could have done
Who they might have been, what they could become
The lights go down
Troubled child, Parents fight again, hides under the stairs, no one cares
Worse at school, she’s taunted about her weight, kids can be so cruel
Suddenly, they discover music and escape reality
Dreams come true, but happiness does not ensue
