The ghost inside - The great unknown

We look up to the sky, I swear it never ends
Walk down the road on any path we choose
But then something changed, now days just aren’t the same
I’m feeling so empty like part of me has been removed

My youth is getting older
It got left out in the bitter cold
Now I put it on the back burner where it doesn’t belong
Where did I go wrong?

Let me stop to ask the question
Will I ever get the chance to repeat?
I feel this more and more everyday
Take me back to when I used to believe

Nothing could prepare you, but we try our best
Failure upon failure, what happens next?
Nothing’s ever easy and life still goes on
Don’t stop push on before you become withdrawn
I’ve become withdrawn


My youth is getting older. It got left out in the bitter cold
Now I put it on the back burner where it doesn’t belong
Where did I go wrong?

My innocence is gone
Where did I go wrong?
I feel it slipping away from me
Do you remember when we were free?

I’ve stood up on that ledge, and I know what you see
You’re looking over the edge and wanting to leap
I’ve written every word and expressed all my concerns
You’re losing that part of yourself, but it wasn’t meant to be

My youth is getting older
It got left out in the bitter cold
Now I put it on the back burner where it doesn’t belong
Where did I go wrong? My innocence is gone
