I would speak if I had something to say. Lyrics seems to be the only way for the emotion to manifest. Bits of songs run in and out of my head. Blending, merging, to speak for me.
Do you remember how I searched you out?
How I climbed your cities walls?
Do you remember me as devout?
How I prayed for your calls?
But nothing. A deafening silence.
Out in the street it’s 6 am, another sleepless night
Three cups of coffee, but I can’t clear my head
from what went down last night.
I could have warned him. Knowing there was nothing I could do to change me. But I didn’t speak.
If you’re worried that I might’ve changed
Left behind all of my foolish ways
You best be looking for somebody else
Without a foolish heart, a foolish heart
Because try as I might, my mercurial nature catches up to me.
If I could
Baby I’d give you my world
Everything’s waiting for you
But no matter how I open up, my very nature is the ultimate saboteur.
I gotta take a little time
A little time to think things over
I better read between the lines
In case I need it when I’m older
In my life there’s been heartache and pain
I don’t know if I can face it again
But I’m facing it. Again.
