I find myself wanting
Beyond dreams often untouched
Longing for whats haunting
Feeling very rushed

The need for belonging
To feel normal
The object of longing
My heart feeling dismal

Shall I ever feel whole
Or will I be forever lost
Torn from the ground like a mole
Trying to find the one I love the most

I hate wanting to be ordinary
Standing out shouldn't be scary
