Im Stressed out to the max and need some peace and quiet.

I need a vacation from life

by Blue Hendrix

Being able to float on a fluffy marshmallow cloud.
Just wishing I could get away from the stress and the crowd.
I'm running all the time about to run out of gas.
If you let life get you down it'll take you down real fast.

Always on the go gotta do better than my rival.
I feel as if now it's a matter of survival.
Maybe peace and quiet or just fantasy, in my dreams.
It's probably too good to be true or that's the way it seems.

I try so hard to take a break and slow it down.
But then another issue comes up and my smile turns to a frown.
I sometimes feel I'm going under from the worry , stress, and things to do
then I think just work harder, one day your dreams might come true.

But, until then I'll keep running to help out anyone in need.
Even though sometimes I'm so stressed I feel like I can't breathe.
I'll just keep waiting and hoping for the peaceful quietness to come for me.
Maybe one day real soon I pray, guess we'll have to wait and see.
