restraint"im off", you sayIn your nonchalant wayAnd although inside i'm screaming outThat I want you to staySomething inside meStops me and hides meAnd all I can force outIs a strangled "okay".
toofargoneThe red runs out to greet meAnd see my regretful expressionTo bring me close to death, and thenSlowly bead and grow from somewhere within.Then, as a snail, slowly runsAcross my goosebumped arm and then,Pausing for a while as if to gain some senseOf direction, and then slowly falls.Across the blank abyss and captured by my handThe red, it runs between my printsAnd some primal instinct in me surgesAs I realised I have, again, too far gone.
cold smokeAt these precarious hours in the morning,As I open my eyes and I see you hovering at my doorDrenched in grey, as everything, you silently tell me"It's time to go, for I have stayed too long".Those hours who we valiantly fought againstEventually won us over, and yet,Although they take you away from me today,I know that soon they will bring you back to me again.There is nothing left to say now. Only the promisesOf fidelity and love in the icy morning with one last longing hug goodbyeAs we press stale lips together you taste like cold smokeAnd a bittersweet ending to the beginning of today.
gettoyouLast night I was up until the smallest hoursTracing the coloured lines to where you areAnd even though, granted, it might seem farI will do all that's within my powerTo get to you.Last night I listened to our song so loudThat when I stopped, my ears, they rang with joyAt being minutes closer to your voiceAnd I knew that it would make them proudTo get to you.And even if when all my toil is done,I still can only nearly reach your handI will sigh and quietly, I'll standAnd know that one day, soon, I'll be the oneTo get to you.
a song for buried heartbreakAm E D GIt was seventeen years agoI was young and did not knowHow cruel a heartbreak can be when what's at stakeIs all for yourself you can showThere once was a girl named SallyWho had a sister called AllieWhose friend was called Jo, who took it real slowThen ran off with that douchebag called BillyWhen she laughed the whole world laughed with herAll I could give I gave to herBut she tore open my heart and picked it apartAlong with the world I'd built for herSo my children now you must learnFrom my memories although they do burnDon't give everything away to a girl you only met todayAnd after what you can't have do not yearn
