I thought today might be the day
when I open the door and leave my cage
Last night I dreamt I took the step
then I woke up in a panic, knowing I’m not ready yet.
Don’t ask me why
cuz I don’t understand
I’ve always stood on solid ground
now I’m knee-deep in the sand.
I opened the window and was stunned by the cold
Summer had ended but I was never told
The leaves had fallen, as did my tears
Seems I missed out on my favorite time of year.
Where did I go?
Cuz I don’t understand
I’ve always known just who I was
now I’m not sure who I am.
But I’d make a bet
I’ll get there yet
I’ll . . . find . . . my . . . way.
Just . . . not . . . today.
