I said in a preview post that I had to find subjects to write about. Well, I guess I found one. It's something that's always been a big part of me, the only thing that kept me moving forward : my dreams. I need to write about them as I often feel misunderstood. People think that dreams are useless, that they have to remain dreams and that it's a loss of time to try to reach them. Are you serious? Let me ask you something, people : are you happy? Do you have goals in life? Cause I'm sorry to tell you this, but dreams are nothing but goals. And, yes, I have plenty!
I always had issues with writing about them, because it's so hard to describe something that can't be touched and that you never lived. It's just thoughts that cross your mind, things that you can only imagine. Pretty frustrating actually. But still, it keeps you alive.
Surprisingly, I was inspired enough to write down the right words and to create a whole song called “Where I Belong”.
Have you ever felt like your place isn't where you are ? 100% sure that you belong to another place, far far from here? Have you ever wanted to completely change your life, from A to Z? Have you ever thought nothing is holding you where you are and that leaving could be the best thing that would happen to you?
Well I do. I know my life isn't here, I mean in France. It's much farther than a country next to it. It's on the other side of the ocean, where speaking is singing and where working always pays. I know I'll get there someday, probably soon. But still, I have to wait a bit longer. It feels like a whole lifetime, though it'll come quickly. I just can't wait for my dreams to come alive, for my life to change. Don't get me wrong, I love my family and the few true friends I have here. But I don't belong here. And knowing I'm not the only one to think this helps me.
I tried so many times to write about it, nothing ever came to me, until July 24th . Why then? I don't really know. Maybe I feel it more and more deep inside, maybe I want it too bad to keep it to myself and words just came by themselves.
Anyway, here they are.
WHERE I BELONG I'm screaming loud Cause behind the clouds I can see the sign Of dreams being allowed Right now I'd choose any airline To go where the sun shines So many things I would skip To see those visions I keep Give my soul a shift Where each step is a trip And each day is a gift I'd just let my senses drift Come along and take me away Where I belong just for a day Feeling the sun rays There'll be nothing more to say This is where I'll stay I'm getting closer to my aim I start giving it a name As I dream about it every night Where smiling is not a shame And all colors are bright I know everything will be alright Come along and take me away Where I belong just for a day Feeling the sun rays There'll be nothing more to say This is where I'll stay When I look up at the stars I know they'll follow me And I'll see them over there I will forget about the scars Cause it's where I need to be I just have to dare Come along and take me away Where I belong just for a day Feeling the sun rays There'll be nothing more to say This is where I'll stay
