"It Is Over"

I must be dreaming. Is it over?
My undercover work is done,
I have nothing to say, I feel Num.,
I wonder, Should I stay or should I run?

An Officer, A confidential informant,
Family, Friends and my reputation lost,
C.I. 9701, Robin Daniels no longer exists.
Sometimes I wonder was it worth the cost.

There were times when I felt lost.
I had to be both good and bad.
Almost three years living two lives,
What kept me from going mad?

Well time has come to roll me out.
I will finish my last job tonight.
But a battle still rages inside,
I am too tired to put up a fight.

I played with my own addiction,
It was not alwasy easy to win.
Often I felt weak and afraid,
I had to be strong not to give in.

Don't judge me too harshly,
It was a job I did well,
But how many of you are scared,
of the secrets I will tell.

I know what people think of me,
But I know I am still good,
I will still walk with my head up,
I did the best that I could.

Now comes my time to heal,
I can be just me at last,
I will keep good memories,
and leave the rest to the past.
