I found

a thousand wishes

The voices in my head; they get too loud

and they all yelled; I couldn't hear a sound

I was sinking into something I didn't know

while they tried to convince me to let me go


I found light in the darkness

I found water in the desert heat

there was a feeling I told myself I couldn't beat

then I found me


There's nothing I couldn't do 

I could make all my own dreams come true

I was falling 

till I realized what I can do 


I'm my own light in the darkness

I'm my water in the desert heat

I love me, Once I found me

I knew who I would be 


so if the voices in my head

ever get too loud 

if they all yell my name

but I can't hear a sound

if I drown

I can lift me up

when they tear me down

I say fuck em all

everyone around 


cause it's me,

only me,

I found me

    "There's nothing I couldn't do
    I could make all my own dreams come true"
