Remain

Her ticket was the wind,
but it never grabbed her
She waited for a bigger, faster change -
the most glorious way out of here



But now, things never change,
not around here anyway
It’s just more of the same, same, same
There is no way out of here



She tries so hard everyday
not too remain the same



Her ticket was the wind,
but it blew right by her
She’s seen so many leave this place
in less glorious ways, anyway



She tries so hard everyday
not to remain the same
not to become the one who stayed
Must make a change someway



But still all things remain,
the bad habits as well
It’s such a shame, shame, shame
There’s no decent way out of here



She tries so hard everyday
not to remain the same
not to become the one who stayed
Must make a change someday



What’s left is fear for the unknown
and the things that may have been
She’s torn by sickness to the bone
and like a stone she’s sinking
How could she ever dream,
how could she be so naïve?
She is sickened by her irony,
but she cannot change a thing



The only thing is to remain
