What I Need To Be

I fight my demons on my inside,

They always win although I've tried,

Locked in this jail from what I've done,

It seems the fight I've never won,

You've always been right there for me,

You healed my wounds but still I bleed,

I've tried right from the start,

Tried to change my evil heart,

And so I break my wings,

An angel love unseen,

Until the love shines on me,

Tells me what I need to be,

So I'm sorry for my evil lies,

I'm sorry for my love that hides,

Just like the coward I have been,

Because my demons always win,

And so I break my wings,

An angel love unseen,

Until the love shines on me,

Tells me what I need to be,

And so I take these things,

And All I used to be,

From the darkness we both see,

To find just what I need to be,

And so I lay here and think of you,

And everything I put you through,

But it seems all you put in me,

Breaks my demons sets me free,

And so my newfound wings,

An angel love now seen,

Now that love shines on me,

Heals me and it sets me free,

I try,  but nothing seems to set me straight,

And I cry,  from losing all my love to hate,

So tell me what I've lost,  what I must be,

Just hold me close and,  set me free,

The End
