The Trouble  ©️Pina Tuteri 2020

The trouble with waking up

Is knowing I’m not feeling right

Yet another day so long, so alone

Without strength 

I’m here on my own

I light up a cigarette 

And I cry to another song

 

Without someone to love

Without knowing there’s nothing wrong

 

When I get sad I feel so alone

And nothing can make me feel good

Should I let out a tear on my own

In hope to wash it away

For another day, should I

Let this pain

Just control my days

Emotions can’t be swept away

Just like that shit on the floor

You pick it up then throw it away

If I knew

Why, my heart strains

If I knew

How I could change

What I’m feeling inside

 

I hope I find love

I hope I kiss the one

Who blows me away

And floors me again

Can I wait one more day

To find love and then

Am I back here again

So alone, so afraid

 

If I knew

Why, my heart strains

If I knew

How I could change what I’m feeling inside

 

You see the trouble

With waking up

Is living another day

Without someone to love

Can I live this way?

Somethings gonna change.
