Where I Want To Be


Krystal Jackson

I'm here all alone 
Locked up again 
No one's around 
No one's my friend 

I want to go home 
I don't want to be here 
If I don't get out soon 
I'll float with the air 

No one that loves me 
No one that cares 
No one to take me 
No one that dares 

All alone in the world 
No one to feel 
No one's shoulder to cry on 
No one to heal 

I wish I was a mermaid 
Living in the sea 
All my problems washed away 
And I can only be 

Or to be a bird 
And fly away 
Leaving my problems behind 
To deal with another day 

But that's not what I am 
I can only be me 
And I want to go home 
THAT'S where I want to be
