I found myself in an endless grid with some new perspective,
Still roaming in those fragile pleas, while motioning endlessly.
I think too much, and I speak too often.
There’s something about possibilities, in waiting for something to happen.

So, if you need me I’ll be by the lake, inside my thoughts and mistakes,
Among the places we go when we don’t know, and the faces we don’t show.

I spent New Year’s Day at Huddle House, the heavy clouds were blending out, and the only thing that remains the same,
is that I’m always searching, searching for that feeling I can’t describe.
