Turn Away

When someone is stuck between keeping those he loves happy, or serving the proverbial greater good

Words spoken to darken the path ahead

It's amazing what a few hours can do

I think I'll take the exit instead

It's amazing how I never think things through

For the land or for love

For the love in my heart or the world above

I know nothing of what's to come

I'm not even awake in this life

Can I be the hero

Or is love the only way to live

I could change the world

I could change everything

Turn away from me

Take everything you need

Run away from me

I'll only let you down in the end

By preserving my legacy I lost my soul

I think I've sealed my fate

My heart is torn, now merely a hole

I love to self-destruct what I create

I could become the hero forever

Or suffer from what might have been

I burn the bridge and sever connections

Farewell, You'll never see what I've seen

Turn away from me

Take everything you need

Run away from me

I'll only let you down in the end

The End
