Sweeping Up Rainbows

by Brent Enman



Always seems like I’m the last one standing in line…
It’s such a waste of my time
And I feel so powerless..

Just wish for once I could be one of the beautiful people
and see the world through their eyes
Maybe I wouldn’t feel so worthless…

Instead I’m the last one here
Lost to the party atmosphere
I’m no one no one knows I’mm,m,
just sweeping up rainbows…

While everyone around me is seemingly upwardly mobile
I’m stuck here in this grind
slowly losing my sense of self
At the disposal of everyone’s little whim
When do I get to begin
To be someone special

And now I’m drowning in the afterglow
of everyone’s success I’ll never know I’m still lost at the lost and found
and bound to sweeping up rainbows
sweeping up rainbows

And it makes me feel so invisible
cause no one asks my name
I guess that’s just the way it goes
and God only
I’m so tired of sweeping up rainbows
I pray someway my day will come then
I’ll be the one who knows how it feels to have someone sweep up my rainbows
