“When My Mind’s At a Toss” – Tyler Sorrell

Here is where I don’t want to be,I just can’t leave.

There’s so much to accomplish in the moments that I just can’t breathe.

There’s so much to go after in the moments that I just can’t see.

I get stuck in thoughts that could never be true.

Overwhelmed by the emptiness I wished I got through.

Still in search for the feelings my former lovers all threw…

Away.

That’s where I always wish to go.

Not too far, just hidden enough for the, “you’ll never know.”

Somewhere near the clouds that we’re normally so far below.

Then I think of the talents I’m still meant to show.

I recognize the time that I still have to grow.

At times, I just go blind due to the strength of its glow.

No, it’s not everyday anymore that these thoughts come across.

I’ve been exposed to the greatness of my own, sometimes I just feel its at loss.

The late-greats have said it best and I quote:

“I pay the cost to be boss.”

Too look good when I floss…

I have to be the one to catch myself when my mind’s at a toss.

“Maybe” by Tyler Sorrell 

It may look like I’m intoxicated. 
I really wish that was an option, 

Maybe,

You could come over and intoxicate me 

I’m just trying to get high off you.


These city streets aren’t always shady.

I really wish that was the truth, 

Maybe,

You could come out and shed some light.

I’m just trying to shine bright with you.

In the late nights,

I’ll be thinking about you.

Through the long days,

I’ll be thinking about you.


When I’m down and out,

I’ll be thinking about you.

Stayed down, now I’m up;

Somehow I’m still without you.

It may look like I’m so far gone.

I truly wish that wasn’t an option, 

Maybe,

You should come out & send me off.

I’m just trying to get to you.

These hearts don’t have love to share,

I truly wish that wasn’t the truth, 

Maybe,

You should come over and love with me…

I’m just trying to love with you.
