I woke up yesterday and everything was fine
Woke up today, you were on my mind

Sometimes some silence is a needed rest for the soul
But I still don’t know why my soul even needs rest at all

I’m falling down
I’m falling down
Next to you

I lit a candle but I couldn’t get rid of doubt
I dove headfirst into the water but my worry came out

Sometimes some confidence apparently can be the cure
But I still don’t know what I need medicine for

Pulling me down
Pulling me down
There you are

Looked in the mirror at reflections of you and I
You’re always next to me, even when I cry

Sometimes some movement is all that our bodies need
But I still don’t know why my legs are so weak

Crawling around
Crawling around
After you

I woke up yesterday and nothing at all was fine
I woke up today without the answers for my state of mind

Sometimes some tribulations can strengthen weakened souls
But I still don’t know why my soul had to be weak at all

Want to get out
I want to get out
There you are

Good. Nothing exceptional about it but it's a good way to start

I like the first line and the second one is a good play off of this.

I’m falling down

Next to you
It seems a bit too bland for me, but I like the way it fits in here all the same.

This is probably my favorite stanza of the piece. I like this a lot

I like the uncertainty in this stanza. It reflects on something i'm sure many have felt.

This fits along with the last two stanzas, more so than the last chorus

Looked in the mirror at reflections of you and I
You’re always next to me, even when I cry
This feels a bit forced. I get the vibe that you're trying to give off but I feel like the delivery isn't as good as it could be.

I like the last line of this but I don't know how I feel about the first one. It just feels a bit off

This does very well in playing off of the last stanza. Good job on this one

I woke up yesterday and nothing at all was fine

I don't like "nothing at all". Maybe choose a different way to word that part while giving off the same message.

Nothing bad to say about this one

Want to get out

In the previous choruses they seemed to fit with the previous stanzas but this one just seems a bit out of place.


All in all it's got potential with some revisions but as of right now I'd have to say it's a fairly average piece but it could be turned into something good.
