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?
