Right here in this moment
As I look into my eyes
My heart tells me I'm not good enough
But it's just been a hoarder of lies.

The raindrops were colored
With old stormy skies
I thought I saw rainbows
With my searching hopeful eyes.

The scent of true happiness
Wafted free in my mind
Always just out of reach
Of what I was hoping to find.

My heart has held on
held strong and held tight
To pain and shame and hopelessness that pierce my soul at night

I can't say anymore
That the hurt and pain aren't there
But the search is now over
For the giver of despair.

I am giving my heart back
To the child I'm supposed to be
If you truly love someone
You must set them free.

Right here in this moment
As I look into my eyes
It's no surprise my heart protected me
But it's just been a hoarder of lies.
