Rookie (devon)

strong one


sometimes i feel like my life in out of control
i sometimes just give up and crawl in to a hole
i don't want to give in i don't want to let go
its just so hard to stay when my life seems a show
if i could be happy in this world i could grow
yet i cant because everyone wants power its so low
well if you want power theres one thing you should know
with power comes responsibility is that a blow?
i don't need power i need life nice and slow
all i want is to be the worlds friend not its foe
the choices i get given the choices i blow
all down to my anger that i cant seem to let go
i ask myself give me a reason any reason at all
why you have to go shouting and punching the wall
is it anger release or me saying i cant take this anymore
i don't know why i brake on the floor after slamming the door
all i know is i am meant to be the strong one after all
