I look at the person I was a year ago.
Contemplating if I changed… I don’t know.
And that I realize
When I look into the eyes
Of the boy that evolved to a man who has grown.
Struck with hard emotions, left and right
Controlling them was one hell of a fight
But heart break seemed to go where I went
Love songs and poems was how the time got spent
Doubting the people…Doubting myself…
If I couldn’t love me, I can’t love anybody else
Gave me social anxiety, how can it get worse
Loneliness I confided in when everything hurt
This was my struggle for a long time
That’s when I grew up, and made up my mind.
As strange as it sounds, I started talking to strangers
Out go the thoughts, into my body, for worse or for better
I learned that there are hatful people and the ones that care
I focused on the ones who’ve got positive emotions, and I swear
That happiness is a choice, and the people you surround with
Talk and have fun, personality is what I give
Experience of this is what built up my character
Walking through the stage of life, I’m one of the actors
To follow the script, read off it line for line
Or write your own story and go improvise
I know I’m going on this adventure, I stand
Meeting people wherever I am
Last year was just the lesson of the past
ON forward as I go hoist up the mast
Because last year I was a boy, but now I’m a man…
