To escape this grim reality we call life
Into a world of my own creation
I cower in the dark recesses of my mind
And make way for my imagination
To run wild

To pretend I am something different
Not the broken person that I am
Happy, strong, controlling it
That's just how it is, I say it 'cause I can
Like a child

To be in control of something
Holding the world together
Because I'm tired of spiraling
I just want things to be how they were
Back when I smiled

To remember and hold on
The past is so precious, so dear to me
I can't bear that it's gone
I can pretend you're still here with me
But still, I know you died

To stop thinking
Because I'm just so tired
To stop the world from spinning
Just to rest for a little while
These are the reasons why...

This sounds all topsy-turvy when read aloud as I know grief does to your brain.

Yea, I was going for that. So I expected it to end up really cool, or just confusing haha
