confusion (our mind's battle with itself)

Caught

I'm caught between to waves;
Smashing me on both sides.
I'm being pulled in two directions
By opposing tides.
I want to go both ways;
But my body is just one.
Even though my soul
Belongs to both moon and sun.
I'm standing on a ledge;
No escape route to be found.
Whichever way I step
Pain is all around.

Why?

          The sun rises in the east
          No matter where you are
          And no matter how close
          You always seem so far

          The tide come in at night
          On the beach beneath the sky
          And no matter how much pain
          My heart will always ask "why?"

          But I can't stop these feelings
          No matter how hard I try
          So I sigh,
          And ask "why?"

          The north star's always there
          For me to wish on each night
          No matter how often it fails 
          I wish to hold you tight

          One day summer's always over
          Despite us not wanting it to end
          And my heart still feels broken
          No matter how much I want it to mend

          But I can't stop the feelings
          No matter how hard I try
          So I sigh,
          And ask "why?"

          So I sigh,
          And ask "why?"
          But I can't stop the feelings
          No matter how hard I try
          So I sigh,
          And ask "why?"
