I took a little time to look around me.
I took a little time to figure things out.
I took a little time to realize my own surroundings.
I took a little more than just scream and shout.
I took a little time to justify me.
It’s time to stop talking to myself.
I took a little time to wonder why I criticize me.
Maybe I am too busy trying to be somebody else.
I’ve got a gun to my head, and I am nearly dead……
but we got a time to start again.
I took a little time to put my guard down.
I took a little time to wonder why.
I took a little time to know what’s worth and what’s going on here.
I didn’t know if I should laugh or if I should cry.
I took a little time to chip my shoulder
and be that monkey on my back
Maybe it’s me just getting older.
I feel like where I am going and just ain’t no turning back.
Thinking about the worlds I am about to cross,
The loves I get and the friends I’ve lost the other way.
I think I ‘ll be jumping out today.
So don’t let me down….don’t let me down.
