Lyrics

How Did I Get Here by Ileana Burdine

As I walk I stumble
so sit back and puzzle
how did I get here?
content with contentment
tried to see what that meant
how did I get here?
I thought I was trying
always moving, dying
where was that turn
didn't seem to notice
didn't read the sign posts
and now I'm here

as I look I wonder
thought I'd be pulled under
how did I get here?
is this what I wanted
who had time to ask me
how did I get here?
am I happy? maybe
more a yes than a no
but there's room to go
plans have gone awry
can't explain a why
and how I'm here

I don't even breathe
take a breath my dear
we'll stop here
hidden by the fear
comfort in a lie
wasted all this time
hands I've held along the way
frightened that they wouldn't stay
find another way to hide
all I do is waste my time

Walking with the dead
I'm lost amongst the damned
I've given up my dream
It's the journey not the destination
Never made sense to me
All around contentment
Always seemed so stagnant
And I'm lulled to sleep
Unreality is surrounding all of me
What do I need
I don't even breathe
take a breath my dear
we'll stop here
hidden by the fear
comfort in a lie
wasted all this time
hands I've held along the way
frightened that they wouldn't stay
find another way to hide
all I do is waste my time
