Obsession:a word the lazy use to describe the dedicated~Unknown
A lot of people run a race to see who is fastest.I run to see who has the most guts,who can punish himself into exhausting pace,and then at the end,punish himself even more~Prefontaine

They’re flying higher and higher
I just stay in one place
Waiting for my wings
So I can join the chase

They’re coming and they’re going
They’re leaving me behind
I am trying to catch up
I am running out of time

They come and they go
However they please
I am just stuck here
Waiting on my knees

I am praying for answers
I fear they will never come
Choosing my own choice
Seems to be the only one

I don’t know what to do
I don’t know what to say
But when I am with you
My thoughts just go away

I forget what you said
Forget what you did
Just remember that you’re with me
Can’t remember how you kid

You played with them
You say you changed
My friends you hurt
My friends you maimed

But now here I am with you
And they all just fly away
Leaving me here with you
So here I have to stay

I like it here with you
Here in our special space
It’s not very big
But its seems like the perfect place

Here I feel safe
Here I feel warm
I really like it here
Here in your arms

Dad will scare you
Mom will scare me
I don’t really care
As long as with you I can be

My friends are the worst
All except for one
They call my stupid
They call me dumb

They will see one day
How we were made
Together we fit
Together we’ll stay

It took us awhile
To get to this place
It took a great run
It took a great chase

You have me now
Safe in your arms
Forever yours
Forever out of harm

This is super good! I think I only spotted two typos max. Other than that well done!
