And I'm good, good, good to go. I gotta get away...get away from all of my mistakes. So here I sit, looking at the traffic lights. The red extinguishes the hope that the green ignites. I wanna run away; I wanna ditch my life, 'Cause all of my mistakes keep me awake at night. And, … Continue reading If my heart says I’m sorry, can we leave it at that?
This place is a prison, And these people aren't your friends. Inhaling thrills through $20 bills, And the tumblers are drained and then flooded again And again. There's guards at the on ramps armed to the teeth, And you may case the grounds from the Cascades to Puget Sound, But you are not permitted to … Continue reading How long must I wait?
I've been thinking 'bout the times You walked out on me. There were moments I'd believe you were there. Do I miss you, or am I lying to myself again? I do these things. (It's all because of you.) I keep holding on, but I'll try. ([I'll] try not to think of you.) Love, don't … Continue reading Do I miss you, or am I lying to myself again?
We'll do it all, Everything; On our own. We don't need Anything, Or anyone. If I lay here, If I just lay here, Would you lie with me and just forget the world? I don't quite know How to say How I feel Those three words Are said too much They're not enough If I … Continue reading We’ll do it all, everything; on our own.
And if you loved Me, you would read My book. We wouldn't pass each other without a single look. And if I wrote a song for you it would have no hook. 'Cause I don't need a hook to fish for men. And if you follow Me, follow my commands Instead of building bigger castles … Continue reading What If?
It's a little bit funny this feeling inside. I'm not one of those who can easily hide. I don't have much money, but boy, if I did I'd buy a big house where we both could live. If I was a sculptor...but then again, no. Or a man who makes potions in a travelling show. … Continue reading It’s for people like you that keep it turned on
I've been a bad, bad girl. I've been careless with a delicate man. And it's a sad, sad world When a girl will break a boy just because she can. Don't you tell me to deny it. I've done wrong and I want to suffer for my sins. I've come to You, 'cause I need guidance … Continue reading It’s a sad, sad world when a girl can break a boy just because she can
An old man turned ninety-eight. He won the lottery and died the next day. It's a black fly in your Chardonnay. It's a death row pardon two minutes too late. And isn't it ironic? Don't you think? It's like rain on your wedding day! It's a free ride when you've already paid! It's the good … Continue reading Life has a funny way of helping you out
I repent. I repent of my pursuit of America's dream. I repent. I repent of living like I deserve anything: Of my house, my fence, my kids, my wife, In our suburb where we're safe and white. I am wrong and of these things I repent. I repent. I repent of parading my liberty. I … Continue reading I repent judging by a law that even I can’t keep
And if you want my glory, you gotta take my sin. And if you want my future, you gotta take my skin. And if you want my heart, you gotta take my blood. And if you want my bed, you gotta take my love. 'Cause, I'm not a half a man. No. I'm not a half … Continue reading I’m not a half a man.
