Yellow Brick Road


It feels like I'm falling from the sky
Lost in a world of "why"
Choices to be made
Debts to be paid
A whirlwind of life at my door
I don't want to be an adult anymore
It is just too damn hard
I want to hand in my grown up card
Just once can't things be easy?
Simple, straightforward, easy peasey?
I have to make some choices now
I'm just not sure how
There are too many factors to consider in this quest
The gravity of my choice weighs heavily on my chest
This is my life I am talking about
My future- what I need and what I can go without
My head is spinning round and round
Someone pull me down
Point me to the signs I need
Show me where to go, I beg, I plead
I am about ready to implode
So please show me my yellow brick road!
Let it lead me where I am suppose to go
I'll follow it through the highs and lows
Just as long as it takes me to my destiny
As long as what I encounter along the way makes me a better me
I don't want to screw this up a second time
It's obvious I cannot trust my heart or mind
So pave the path ahead of me and set it in stone
Walk beside me because I cannot do this alone
Lead me to the Great and Powerful Oz
Maybe He can rob me of my flaws
Maybe He can give me courage, a brain, and a heart
Perhaps He can tell me where to start
I don't have any ruby red slippers to take me home
To lead me to where my heart's desires are known
I need to get where I am going and fast
I don't know how much longer I can last
I carry with me a heavy load
So just drop me off at my yellow brick road
