When the surrounding voices simmer down
to a pure whisper
and you are left alone
Do you wish you were elsewhere?
When you're caught in past guilt,
the shame, the regrets
the heartache and the heartbreaks
Do you wish it would all go away?
Still I move onward
To better days, to a better self
And still I move upward
to the heavens that give me hope
And I wish for peace
Just exactly where I am
