Listen To The Sound

I listen to the sound of an old guitar
Dreaming big, I see the stars
The moon at night up in the sky
Living life as time goes by

I listen to the sound of an old guitar
Dreaming big, I see the stars
The moon at night up in the sky
Living life as time goes by

Taking a chance on a life for me
Trying to find my destiny
Hoping for a place to call my home
I just don't want to be alone

It's a long way back from the hell I've known
I've traveled through this winter storm
Afraid to lose and afraid to fall
Stuck behind my inner wall


I listen to the sound of an old guitar
Dreaming big, I see the stars
The moon at night up in the sky
Living life as time goes by

I listen to the sound of an old guitar
Dreaming big, I see the stars
The moon at night up in the sky
Living life as time goes by

I've always wondered where I can even go
Trying to remember all that I do know
For it may feel like you can't survive
And from this darkness, you run and hide

I close my eyes and try to sleep
Enforce the door around my keep
For what I want is to believe
It's getting colder, it's hard to breathe

I keep falling down to the floor
Failing to open a single door
I feel like I'm going to die
But that doesn't matter, because I will try

It's the devil on my shoulder
As I do climb, here comes a boulder
I can let it end in pain
Or I can start this inner hurricane

I listen to the sound of an old guitar
Dreaming big, I see the stars
The moon at night up in the sky
Living life as time goes by

I listen to the sound of an old guitar
Dreaming big, I see the stars
The moon at night up in the sky
Living life as time goes by

I won't let this monster win
And to the sky, I will ascend
Breaking these chains around my heart
I begin, this is the start

I won't forget to make it mine
For I will conquer, I will be fine
I'm not afraid to be my own
It's time to pull my sword from the stone

I don't have to fear my fate
As I will write, and I create
Words into pictures upon this page
I trap the demons inside this cage

I'm not sure if I will succeed
But I will cook my own little recipe
I'll let my soul speak with a song
As what I've been looking for was here all along

I listen to the sound of an old guitar
Dreaming big, I see the stars
The moon at night up in the sky
Living life as time goes by

I listen to the sound of an old guitar
Dreaming big, I see the stars
The moon at night up in the sky
Living life as time goes by

This is a rough draft of the song. Any critique is appreciated as I like writing music and poetry and still have a lot to learn. It's a lot longer and I might cut some of it. Let me know what you...
