I want to rejoice in the summer breeze

And dance and sing with glee

I want to laugh until my sides ache

To just feel more like me

I want to feel something besides sadness

That consuming case of nerves

I want to feel like life is worth living again

Instead of a sentence I have to serve

I want to feel joy and hope for the future

That good things are just up ahead

I want to be myself again, the version I was meant to be

Not wanting to think I am better off dead

I want to stop feeling so helpless and sad

That life has nothing to offer me

I want to feel like being alive

My heart and soul longs to be free
