Lyrics

Every day at 6 am, that same voice comes to me
With news of yesterday, new things I’ve done wrong
And I wonder as I stumble to wash my face
Why the same face keeps coming
The same face keeps rising up to greet me

It’s a new color I’m, I’m putting on myself
It’s a new pair of shoes I’ve got down on my feet
It’s a new way to walk and I’ll walk out of that door
But will it bring me a new me?

I keep telling myself that I am not the same
10 years ago I was so lost
10 years ago I had no name
I’m no longer in the shelter
Of a fist and hiding shame
But I don’t feel one step closer
To the person I pretend to be

It’s a new color I’m, I’m putting on myself
It’s a new pair of shoes I’ve got down on my feet
It’s a new way to walk and I’ll walk out of that door

Let me stop and take a breath
Upon the steps of this house called regret
And try to leave it behind me
Yeah I’ll stop and take a breath
Upon the steps of this house called Regret
And I’ll leave it behind

It’s a new color I’m, I’m putting on myself
It’s a new pair of shoes I’ve got down on my feet
It’s a new way to walk and I’ll walk out of that door
But will it bring me a new me?
