Still trying to figure out how to be happy in a world
that continually lets down a tender girl
Things start to look up, I rediscover hope, and then
Someone (or something) breaks my fragile heart again
I know I’m not a victim here, I’m not a helpless pawn
But someone can still hurt you even if you’re strong
Can’t keep looking to the past to try to fulfill me
Don’t wanna turn to salt, might emotionally kill me
“Reach out!” they always say, but what if no one reaches back?
Then the nostalgia surges and the loneliness attacks.
If you’re not careful, good memories ensnare you
So go try and make new ones, I double dog dare you
So what’s the next step? Where should I go from here?
(draw upon that reservoir of faith, and don’t take counsel from your fear!)
Guess I’ll look to the future! (hesitantly, but with hope)
Cuz girl, there’s not much else that you can do to cope!
