Here Until Then

You put me in this place
and took away my means of getting out.
You put me in this place yeah
and took away my skill at getting out.

Well you may make me crawl, now
but I'll crawl out stronger when 
I crawl out.


    This is where I am, yeah
    But I won't be here forever, no
    And I'll know this place better when I go.
    Yeah you brought me low
    But I'll climb out much better.
    However it appears
    I'm only here till then.

Right, now I'm in this place
Look each way for a means of getting out.
While I'm in this place
Search my brain for a space to work it out.

And you may make me cry, now
But I'll cry out louder when
I cry out.




Well you can't be proud of what you've done.
Watch what you're doing.
Yeah, you can't be proud of what you've won.
Watch what you're losing.

Well you may have had your turn, now
But I'll turn it all around when
It turns out.




Did you try to wear me down with shame?
I can see pride coming.
Did you hope to ride this storm unscathed?
I can see pride falling.
Did you know I'm strengthening day by day?
This is your warning.

Thank you Philipos and Stephen for commenting.
Also, thanks to everyone for all the Likes for this poem/song.

Stephen I may often dare to inflict my writing style upon the world but I am not nearly as confident to sing at anyone. I haven't got that great a voice and not enough vocal control either, I'm definitely not up to the task of performing this one, at least not with the imaginary tune that it currently has.
