Finish Line

October 23, 2015

 

FINISH LINE

 

I've never been one to overstate
But I always own what I create
In the back of my mind I overrate
And in the front of my mind it's all a game

 

Sitting right here, just on the other side of the finish line
Rubbing my feet, thinking about my journey as I unwind
And it took me some time to get this far
I take a deep breath and I'm glad it's over

 

I try to think about where I'll go from here
Staring out the window, my mind's unclear
And I know that I ought not to fear
The second I let go of control, my future will appear

 

Sitting right here, just on the other side of the finish line
Rubbing my feet, thinking about my future as I unwind
And it took me some time to get this far
I take a deep breath and I'm glad it's over

 

I may have even taken the scenic backroad once or twice
I may have even broken down on the side of my life
But got back up, put myself together,
Got back on the road, and faced the weather

 

Sitting right here, just on the other side of the finish line
Rubbing my feet, thinking about life as I unwind
And it took me some time to get this far
I take a deep breath and I'm glad it's over

 

Probably won't make a change like this again for a while
And the thought of staying still makes me want to smile
In thinking how I got here, I count every mile
As I step into my new life with grace and style

 

Sitting right here, just on the other side of the finish line
Rubbing my feet, thinking about myself as I unwind
And it took me some time to get this far
I take a deep breath (for myself) and I'm glad it's over
I'm glad it's over, I'm glad it's over, I'm so glad it's over
