In the End 

All my life I wanted to run away

Trying to seek what I thought was love

Even though in the end I would always have to stay

Hoping soon enough it would come to the ending day

Consumed by the push and shove

All my life I wanted to run away

Everywhere I looked all I saw was decay

Believing one day I could be a pure, white dove

Flying away. Even though in the end I would always have to stay

All I could do was hope and pray until one day

I was finally able to look above. To see I was beloved

All my life I wanted to run away

Even though today my life is still in disarray

I know I am more than the feeling of being unloved

Even though in the end I would always have to stay

My life is not was it was, today

Now I can live without having to fray

All my life I wanted to run away

Even though in the end I would always have to stay
