Shall We Take A Trip

(Verse 1)
Pieces of myself that I leave behind
Burning on the bridges aflame in my mind
With heavy heart, I rise and turn away
You call and call and call, I do not respond
It doesn't mean that I don't carry fond
Memories of us way back when
I'll think of you, I will, every now and then.

What is it that brings us to this point in life
Makes me wanna run and hide,
just like an innocent child ... cent child ... innocent child

Shall we take a trip down lonely avenue?
Where love's blinding light don't seem to penetrate
Shall we take a trip?
Where hope's voice is silenced and fear is king

(Verse 2)
You say there is no higher purpose for this
That I seek to fulfill my own selfish bliss
In many ways, you may just be right
I dream of things that I have yet to see
The call is strong and much bigger than me
The mirror is a frightening place
You may just wanna take a look at your own face

I know that life ain't paradise
But the way that things have been rollin' just won't suffice
I know that you meant well
But as far as I am concerned, you can go to hell

What is it that brings us to this point in life
Makes me wanna run and hide,
Just like an innocent child...cent child...child
