See and Know

I look around myself
Never spending much time in..
Easier to cast my eyes
Than knowing how I got to this place that I take in

I look around
Sometimes the words lie too much with me
Calmer more relaxed they would take their place
Open doors see a happier side
See my inability to extinguish lies

See and know
That you can’t take this picture from me
And god knows you tried

Because I have looked deep and around myself
And seen it here and now
That I’m glad to know you
