    I close my eyes and I see
    A place that I wish my world could be

    The sun is shining and the clouds are gone
    I smell the freshness of the air and watch the beauty of dawn

    Beautiful white daisies dancing with the wind
    Silver gates that open up to white mansions

    Excuse me for a minute... I'm just taking a break from reality...

    The past doesn't exist and my future is never discussed
    I'm living in this moment and I never have to rush

    I'm walking on air and floating from minute to minute
    Nobody else exists, this is my world and I'm the only one living in it

    I never yell, never have to scream, never have a pinched nerve
    I can take my time, walk if I want to, dogde a couple of life's curves

    Excuse me for a minute... I'm just taking a break from reality...

    I work to my own voice and move to my own command
    Believe in my own judgement, even if I'll never understand

    I barely think, I just act on my emotions
    Never have to explain about the directions that I have chosen

    I sing to my own songs and dance to my own music
    Don't worry about my problems or who they influence

    Excuse me y'all... but just let me take a break from reality...

    I don't have to call nobody or try to confide in their voice
    Don't explain to someone why I came home at 3am, because it was my choice

    I don't have to worry about someone dating somebody else
    I don't have to compromise my time or make a future with wedding bells

    I dont have to explain to my friends or watch out for own-being
    I can comment on anything and indulge into what many dont believe in

    Excuse me y'all, but I'm just need to take a break from reality...

    I was all wrapped up in the "concept" of this...
    sometimes we all have to take that break before
    reality breaks us.

    Beautifully written, and I can definitely relate to the sentiment, girl.
