These doors open
One step in is the same step out
There's no lights in here
but I'll cast a shadow out.
Unfolding
With enough folds to give you time
to confuse me with the reason for that smile

At first I thought I was special
Followed by unnerved
Whoever thought encounters
could leave me so altered.
I didn't ask myself that
now I know even less.

What would you do
if you weren't afraid of it all?
What could she say?
It takes a lot of nerve to leave that way

So I've become a vision of my former self
Look through the package and labeling
or do you see me as some one else?
So I've become a vision of what I used to be
Is this a premonition or did you just finally listen
Will I make to the end? We'll see.

Through all the fear and consequence.
Of the unknown and loneliness.
Will I ever get off this train?
Will I break bread and then walk away?
Well now we'll see.

What would you do
if you weren't afraid of it all?
What could she say?
It only takes one look to turn away
To turn away

Partially in shadow we live our lives
Saved by the grace of sometimes opening our eyes
The souls that slip so easily in and out of time
We can't hope to pin down but just hope that we realign

A choice you never made
A moment slips away
A different life you left behind because you were afraid

A choice you never made...
