when my ears caught music from my youth, something triggered
realization sank into my chest then stomach
lost are all the years where i had braced for tomorrows
in it's place were mornings of regrets and some doubt

that i could truly be who i said i'd be
and often i reflect on what i'd say
were i to see you
i imagine it would sound something like this:

it's been seven years since i left
our hometown
i imagine you here with me quite often
life has turned out more difficult than we'd heard
but i still keep hope that i might make you proud and
though there are times where i feel i should give up
it's at that moment that i remember
when you said ''kevin, do it for me.''
''i will.''

i shall remain on this journey, i have no choice to
and within me i will save your words to guide me
they will be the light to break the clouds that were anchors
and when i return to your doorstep i'll recite

that i fulfilled my promise from long ago and
when this scene plays inside my mind
this is what takes place:
you put your phone
on the hook
cause pretending's done
