Autoimmune Disease

A Great Big World

“Facing forward,

Lights out,

I won’t stop running.

Falling backwards,

Hands tied,

I won’t stop running.

I’ll take another sunrise;

Another hand to hold tight.

This isn’t over –

I am way too young and I won’t stop running.
I don’t know how much longer I can fake it:

That it’s all alright, that I can do this alone.

And I know that life is what you make it,

But it’s hard to see stars when you’re always caught in the folds.

Every night in my mind it’s a fight,

But I won’t stop dreaming

‘Cause this isn’t over –

I am way too young and I won’t stop running. 
I’d rather be the one that starts the fire
Than to shut my mouth and be the one who gets burned.

Yeah “it is what it is,” but I wanna go higher;

‘Cause I felt it once before.

I believe the tables will turn.
I wanna love and be the one who is loved.

No I won’t stop dreaming;

‘Cause this isn’t over –

It’s never over.
How do you explain it?

For seven years I made it through the falls;

I’m living it all. 
I’m tearing off the labels,

And suddenly I’m able, scaling walls

I’m living it all,

And I won’t stop running.”

✌🏼&💜,

Bailey
