Obstacle


OBSTACLE

Tell me yourself, am I in trouble? It seems like the sun won't shine today Every passage I take has obstacles But never have you stood in my way

And I breathe again, for the millionth time And I scream again, while I unwind And you... And who is to blame?

Tell me yourself, have you been listening? Is your vision blocked from view of my side? Last thing I knew we were still coasting Then this road block appeared and tears were cried

And I breathe again, for the millionth time And I scream again, our shouts entwined And you... And who is to blame?

Tell me yourself, what is the reason? To call an escape the way to grow The cost of our trek would become treason Therefore I choose the strife you know

And I breathe again, for the millionth time And I scream again, your proposal aside And you... And who is to blame?

Tell me yourself, is this just control? An illusion at best but best not to view Like rocks on the shore we have tumbled Though the light has dimmed remember what we knew

And I breathe again, for the millionth time And I scream again, do you still mind And you... And who is to blame?

When the storm settles down, will we be the same?
