Finding Someone

Location

I was hoping to find someone

And at first, I found you

And you were beautiful and turbulent

But perpetually untrue

 

I thought I was left with no one

And maybe I was back then

Being alone just couldn’t compare

To the way that things had been

 

Then I heard you found someone

And my world turned upside down

Because suddenly I realized

You wouldn’t be coming back around

 

And so I too searched for someone

To fill the void that once was you

And the memories of your company

Still choked me ‘til I was blue

 

And I failed to find anyone

Who could make me feel a thing

And when it came right down to it

I didn’t have much to bring

 

And so I searched for someone

In the depths of all that was me

Looked past the pushing away

I was surprised with what I could see

 

And so I became someone

Someone I would want to meet

A girl who was strong but gentle at heart

And who refused to accept defeat

 

And so I found someone

And my chains and angst were freed

I had tried to make someone else

Fill what all along was me

 

And so I am someone

Who is proud and all alone

And maybe someone, somewhere

Will make this heart a home
