words and music by Wendy Soleil

Still the need to reach out so strong

How can we blame when everyone’s sins are the same?
Apologies withstanding, a breakdown in understanding
STILL the need to REACH out so strong
We share names but not our faces, withholding all the dark places
Each mask that we wear, only leading to our own despair
STILL the need to REACH out so strong

I’ve got to save myself, woah save myself
STEP back and SAVE myself, woah STEP back and SAVE myself
I’ve got to save myself, woah save myself
STEP back and SAVE myself, woah STEP back and SAVE myself
…save myself

All the places I’ve known, all the miracles I’ve been shown
The wildfire thoughts that I’ve roamed, srill contemplated alone
STILL the need to REACH out so strong
Still, I look to the other to soothe the wounds from another
Gambling my heart in the deal for a shallow imitation of real
STILL the need to REACH out so strong

Is it really a surprise as I force open my eyes
Deconstructing the lies, only to realize
All we’ve ever needed, It’s inside

It won’t be long, I’ll carry on to see a new beginning
I’ll find a way to make this day one that I’m proud of sharing

because in my heart, I know I am strong
