Every time I see you, you're running,
pacing and chasing nothing
You never take a respite
Will you please halt for some time
because I want to take a sigh.
Sigh and relax,
I want some more time
to bring back fire out of the ash
to be free, open my arms, and dance.
Can you turn back the time
so that I can take care of
that one relative that died
so that I can go back and
hear the school bell chime.
I miss all the time
that I have spent
The teenage hustle
didn't let me breathe through the vent
Will you give me some space
so that I can let the blues out
so that I can come over self-doubt.
Petals are falling down
the smallest, the tallest, and the fastest
are running around
and I am running, pacing, and chasing you
and I want to take a respite too
