Since when Christmas has lost its magic
When everyone tries to get things done before the end of year
When the season of giving hope
became the season of giving work
Since when Christmas has become just another day
but everyone still says Merry Christmas like it’s special
Since the day you were gone
Christmas has lost its magic
but the Christmas light still shines
in the city that never sleeps
“They heard me singing and they told me to stop,
Quit these pretentious things and just punch the clock,
These days, my life, I feel it has no purpose,
But late at night the feelings swim to the surface.
‘Cause on the suburbs the city lights shine,
They’re calling at me, ‘come and find your kind.'”
Is it someone you lost
or a place you long to be?
When the going gets tough
when dreams shattered to pieces
when life gets you down
when hearts are broken 💔
I hope you find
a voice in your head
hold your head up high”
May you find your voice ❤️
Wouldn’t it be nice to live in a big country
I can travel to small towns
visit remote suburbs
take road trips
explore the countryside
move to a new state
with space to breathe
space to roam
space to live
one that I can call home
Wouldn’t that be nice.
Are autistic people using autism as an excuse for their challenging behaviour?
Are people who are depressed using depression as an excuse to be lazy?
Are people using mental illness as an excuse?
How dare I even suggest?
Forgive me for I’m only a human.
You can’t blame me for reacting like most people do.
I’m just a human, I ain’t no saint.
Sometimes we hurt each other
but you know I didn’t mean to.
It’s a cruel world,
we gotta be tough to survive,
or else die,
and some people got to make the sacrifice.
Most people would have done the same,
I did no wrong.
I’m only human, I ain’t perfect.
We all make mistakes, don’t we?
After all, we’re only humans,
prone to human frailty,
succumbing to the lures of power.
Have pity on us,
tell me we deserve another chance,
Afterall, we’re only humans.
And being human,
is the biggest excuse.
