Suzanne Buirgy: Music

Franklin's Song

(Suzanne Buirgy)
June, 2006

Everything I say
Everything I do
I make the wrong decision
Then I look to you
You're hard on me and I don't understand
When you get so angry I just wish you'd take my hand

Because I look around and see everybody breezing by me
I'm stuck here in this body
Why would anybody love me
I don't see myself the way that others do
But one thing's true

I'm falling down instead of standing up
I'm going round in circles instead of moving in a straight line
I'm trying to keep my feet on the ground
But I'm always falling
I'm always falling down

Sometimes I daydream
About my mother and my father
Every time I do
I get a little farther
From a world where I struggle every minute
I get smaller and smaller every day that I'm in it

I reach out my hand and try to touch a stranger
I close my eyes never caring about the danger
I fool myself but when I look in the mirror
It's never been clearer

I'm falling down instead of standing up
I'm going round in circles instead of moving in a straight line
I'm just trying to keep my feet on the ground
But I'm always falling
I'm always falling down

My heart is slowing down
In between the beats
I listen for the silence
I wait for the release
I know it won't be long now
It could happen any day
I will break from this prison
and simply fly away

Instead of falling down I'll be standing up
Instead of going round in circles
I'll be moving in a straight line
No more trying to keep my feet on the ground
No more falling
No more falling down
