Turn into This©2015
Stanza one- Didn't know would turn into this, my special moments you miss.
My hope turned to despair, can I go anywhere, to escape all my pain?
Longing for normal to be, can't we just be family?
We should all get along, but often things go wrong, breaks up our only home, didn't know would turn into this.
Bridge- I hear others say, wish that they could be me, looking from the other side, the grass seems so green;
but what they do not know, many times it's a show, once together from the start, now we all drift apart.
Stanza two- Funny how trust you require, while you build on your empire;
regret keeps you awake, yet you won't give one small break,
loving you a mistake, didn't know would turn into this.
