    I hate that thing that happens right before you sleep
    every mistake you ever make
    every word you wish you never said
    every moment that made you cry rushes through your head
    and all you can do about it is cringe
    and pretend it all never happened

    colorado seemed like the place to go
    for a kid stuck in the chicago suburbs
    colorado seemed like the place to hide
    from the ghosts that linger in my shadows
    rocky mountains, shield me, protect me
    teach me how to weather the bad
    teach me how to stand tall through the good

    each day the sun embraces me
    kissing away the scratches and scars
    implacable acquaintances inflicted
    simply passing through my life

    I gave it all up
    let it all go
    I took a chance
    because I needed to feel happy
    to finally be happy
    but I’m not happy
    when do I get to be happy?
