Lyric Snippets

(Preface: I will not give you any info on who the speaker/audience is for any of these when I sing them in my head, because I mostly just don't know. It certainly isn't consisten throughout the songs. I don't even know how accurately these lyrics reflect my thoughts/emotions, but they're the ones that struck me.)

I can't tell dreams from truth...
If you want me,
Satisfy me...

Deep calls to deep, in the roar of your waters
All of your waves have crashed over me...

Trying to pull myself away
Caught in a pattern and I can't escape...

What direction? What direction? What direction
Life begins at the intersection--
What direction, what direction, what direction, what direction now?...

Here we are now in the falling stars and the rain
We're awakening...

Don't wanna be the only one you know
I wanna be the place you call home
I lay myself down
To make it so, but you don't want to know
You take much more than I'd ever ask for...

Dare you to move
Dare you to lift yourself up off the floor...

I just wanna live
Don't really care about the things that they say
Don't really care about what happens to me

I'm tired of lookin round rooms wonderin what I gotta do
Or who I'm supposed to be
I don't wanna be anything other than me
