because of you

Monday, June 17th, 2013

I will not make the same mistakes that you did
I will not let myself cause my heart so much misery
I will not break the way you did, you fell so hard
I’ve learned the hard way, to never let it get that far

Because of you,
I’ll never stray too far from the sidewalk.
Because of you,
I learned to play on the safe side
So I don’t get hurt.
Because of you,
I find it hard to trust,
Not only me, but everyone around me.
Because of you,
I am afraid

I lose my way and it’s not too long before you point it out
I cannot cry, because I know that’s weakness in your eyes
I’m forced to fake, a smile, a laugh every day of my life
My heart can’t possibly break when it wasn’t even whole to start with

Because of you,
I’ll never stray too far from the sidewalk.
Because of you,
I learned to play on the safe side
So I don’t get hurt.
Because of you,
I find it hard to trust,
Not only me, but everyone around me.
Because of you,
I am afraid.

I watched you die
I heard you cry
Every night in your sleep
I was so young
You should have known
Better than to lean on me
You never thought of anyone else
You just saw your pain
And now I cry
In the middle of the night
For the same damn thing

Because of you,
I’ll never stray too far from the sidewalk.
Because of you,
I learned to play on the safe side
So I don’t get hurt.
Because of you,
I tried my hardest just to forget everything.
Because of you,
I don’t know how to let anyone else in.
Because of you,
I’m ashamed of my life because it’s empty.
Because of you,
I am afraid.

Because of you
Because of you

you can’t win

Tuesday, April 24th, 2012

If you go, they’ll say you’re following
If you don’t, then you’re too good for them
If you smile, you must be ignorant
If you don’t, what’s your problem?

If you’re down, so ungrateful
And if you’re happy, why so selfish?
And, you can’t win
No, you can’t win, no

The one who doesn’t quite fit in
Underdressed under your skin
Oh, a walking disaster
Every time you try to fly
You end up falling out of line,
Oh, you can’t, you can’t win, no

If you’re thin, poor little walking disease
If you’re not, they’re all screaming obese
If you’re straight, why aren’t you married yet?
If you’re gay, why aren’t you waving a flag?
If it’s wrong, you’re knowing it
If it’s right, you’ll always miss
You can’t win, no
You can’t win, no

The one who doesn’t quite fit in
Underdressed under your skin
Oh, a walking disaster
Every time you try to fly
You end up falling out of line,
Oh, you can’t, you can’t win, no

And you try, you try so hard
But it’s wearing on your heart
And you play, you play the game
But you pay, you pay for it
You can’t win, no
You can’t win no

If you speak, you’ll only piss ‘em off
If you don’t, you’re another robot
If you stop, they’ll just say you quit
If you don’t, you might lose your shit
You can’t win, no
You can’t win, no
You can’t win, no

The one who doesn’t quite fit in
Underdressed under your skin
Oh, a walking disaster
Every time you try to fly
You end up falling out of line,
Oh, you can’t, you can’t win, no

I can’t win

The one who doesn’t quite fit in
Underdressed under your skin
Oh, a walking disaster
Every time you try to fly
You end up falling out of line,
Oh, you can’t, you can’t win, no

You know you can’t, you can’t, you can’t win, no
You can’t, you can’t, you can’t win, no
You can’t, you can’t, you can’t win, no
You can’t, you can’t, you can’t win, no
You can’t, you can’t, you can’t win, no

can i have a kiss?

Tuesday, January 15th, 2008

Excuse me for this
I just want a kiss
I just want to know what it feels like to touch
Something so pure
Something I’m so sure of
What it feels like to stand outside your door
I’m unworthy
I can see you’re above me
But I can be lovely given the chance

Don’t move
I want to remember you just like this
Don’t move
It’s only a breath or two between our lips

I know why you left
I can’t blame you myself
Must be hard living with ghosts and such an empty shell
I tried to warn you
I’ve been a mess since you’ve known me
I can’t promise forever
But I’m working on it
If I can’t hold you
Can I give you a kiss?
Can I have a kiss?

I see that you’re torn
I’ve got some scars of my own
Seems I want what I know is gonna leave me hungry

Don’t move
I need to remember you just like this

I know why you left
I can’t blame you myself
Must be hard living with ghosts and such an empty shell
I tried to warn you
I’ve been a mess since you’ve known me
I can’t promise forever
But I’m working on it
If I can’t hold you
Can I give you a kiss?
Can I?

All I have,
All I can give to you I will
Just promise this
If I can’t have forever
Can I have a kiss?
Kiss, kiss?

I know why you left
I can’t blame you myself
Must be hard living with ghosts and such an empty shell
I tried to warn you
I’ve been a mess since you’ve known me
I can’t promise forever
But I’m working on it
If I can’t hold you
Can I give you a kiss?
Can I give you a kiss?
Can I, can I?
Can I have a kiss?
