On the shelf

All alone again
Hanging on to all my hopes and fears
She’s so dear
Dancing in the light of yesteryears
Can’t let go
Petrified I might go astray
On my way
Looking up to see a brand new day

Take me away, and live for today
You can’t deny what’s done, anyway
It’s in the way you lie, to yourself
I know I’ve spent too long on the shelf

Chasing my shadow, I’m walking back again
Go back to old times and see all my old friends
Just sit back and watch time fly, what was there and then
You’re older now, weaker now, no time to start again

Take me away, and live for today
You can’t deny what’s done, anyway
It’s in the way you lie, to yourself
I know I’ve spent too long on the shelf

Simple stain
Takes me back again to that fine day
Could not stay
Have to be getting on my way
Let it be
She was just an angel without wings
Let me sing
I hope that I don’t forget a thing

What do all you guys on the internet think?

eh...decent job, but its a topic thats been written a million times. Every alternative rock band (ex. Seether, Chevelle, Three Days Grace) writes like that. So, if you just want your 15 min of fame then for everyone to forget you, dont change anything. Otherwise, keep trying.
If to live is to die, then is to die to live? Thats a bunch of S_H_I_T.
