I Want My Life Back

by Joan Serratelli

I want my life back
you have it
you stole it from me
Give it back,
it's mine , not yours
so give it back to me

I want my heart back
where it belongs
you have it, you broke it
I want it back now
it's mine, not yours
you've had it too long

I want my mind back
you've got that too
I know you destroyed it
but I still want it back
it's mine, not yours
so please bring it back

I want it returned
all in one piece
I want to be able
to go on without you
but I can't start living
until it all comes
back to me

Sometimes getting out with the largest portion of your sanity is victory enough.
