Is there anybody searching for love they never had?
Searching, yet, on self-destruct cos things are getting bad.
Because it’s quite a journey, not feeling worth a damn
Makes who you are feel like nothing but a sham.
Were you told no-one could love you?
‘Cos that’s just not true.
Do you know how many there are
Out there feeling just like you?
The truth is, very few know of your pain.
And very many feel exactly the same
And neither do they let their pain show,
Years of denial, taking knocks, blow by blow.
Running away through using drugs or booze or sex.
Always moving on from ex to ex to ex.
Or maybe it’s shopping or maybe it’s food,
The campaign to self-destruct is gonna get you screwed.
But always, underneath are words like poison darts
The ones that made you build defensive ramparts.
Words hiding in the back of your thoughts
That prove you’re worth nothing,
An aberration of sorts.
Well, you’re not, you’re simply caught up in a snare,
Take it from one who’s already been there.
I’m thinking back to what or who might have saved me
During the years when I wasn’t free.
Someone who’d been there, now doing fine.
Someone who knew how to draw a line.
Each journey is lonely and yet we all share
The same kind of experience, the same wear and tear.
Don’t feel resentful for things that don’t matter.
Find out who you are, let the past shatter.
Find all the love you need in your heart
‘Cos that will give you a true restart.
And don’t ever let anyone talk to you
With poison dart words that aren’t even true.
The love that will save you is the love you find inside
Let that love enrich you, it cannot be denied.
You are truly worthy, in fact, you’ve always been,
They didn’t have it in them, your soul was never seen.
But don’t let that stop you from moving on now,
You are amazing, let that be your vow.
