An Ode to Myself

Alone again tonite...a place you know too well
Missin' somethin' in your life
Just goin' through the motions
Like to say that you got burned
Well, you're not the only one
You've reached the Y in lonely
On the streets where you run
Can't go back to where you've been
Are you ready to try again?

Commitment's just a word
You couldn't wrap your heart around
Foolish pride and freedom
Got you standing your ground 
The same faces every night
Where you stay 'til closing time
It don't stop the empty feeling
Are you just wastin' your time
A leap of faith, another chance
While you still can dance

Once you let someone love you
You'll find an open door
A place in your heart you've never been before
Believe that it's never too late
For someone to set you free
Once you let someone love you

words by N. Schon & J. Cain
