There is a place where we all go,
Beyond the light and smile shown,
Through the tears of hard nights,
And within the fire burning through determined eyes.
Yes, there is a place where we all go.
My place looks so different than yours,
You wouldn't even recognize it
And I can't grasp yours.
They are all beautiful and real.
We put up so many shields to hide ourselves
Most opinions are not lucid but fabricated
By how we were raised or taught to think.
Go to your place and find you.
If you can't smile looking in the mirror,
Stop smiling to please others.
Sing like no one is watching and dance and love it
If that's the you, that you love
People may laugh, but they will appreciate you
If you open the door,
Who knows who will walk in.
I don't speak from fortune cookie advice,
I speak from the life I've created.
Ask them about me, please,
I'm crazy, weird, original, innovative
Spending every work day singing and dancing and love it
Because that's the me that I love.
I can't enter your place you go.
Truthfully, I don't want to, it's yours.
Own it and all the rest will follow.
