It seems like it never works out in the end
But it's not like you've never been scarred
Keep walking by and you keep asking why
In the world are you trying so hard

There's something inside that you're trying to hide
'cuz you hope it will all turn out fine
But I know one day the sun will rise
On a perfect world and this will all be mine

So when you're lying awake at night
And you're trying to sleep 'cuz something's not right
Just keep on reminding yourself that you're there
And if God wants to punish you
he'll answer your prayers

How many lifetimes will we waste away?
For anybody?
How many prayers do I have to say?
For anybody?
How many dreams are gonna have to burn?
For anybody?
How many lifetimes does it take to learn?
For anybody?

So you've lost all the trust that took years to collect
And you've lost all your dignity
The dreams that I've locked in my head are all gone
And I wonder what's happening

But everyone cries and you finally decide
That you just can't give in anymore
And in that moment you realize
That this has happened once before

    General CommentSurprised I am the first to post as this is an amazing song.
    To me, it speaks of looking to ones self to find answers. How many times through how many lives does it take to learn that the answers lay inside each of us.

    General CommentIt's a song of self-realization like you said, and saying to just keep on going, eventually you'll get it right.
