from somewhere inside

I’m sorry they hurt you little baby girl

but I have you now

and I want to show you the stars

and all the space between

show you that that life you lived

was nothing but a dream

and all that time I waited for you to look up

and look upon me

holding out my hand

to guide you through the murky lands

where the sun never fully rose

and it never fully set

and the rains never came

but the ground was always wet

and your feet got stuck

I’m here now

to take you back to the beginning

of who you were

and everything you are

and everything you forgot you could be
