if no one will listen

Tuesday, January 2nd, 2018

Maybe no one told you there is strength in your tears
And so you fight to keep from pouring out
But what if you unlock the gate that keeps your secret soul?
Do you think there’s enough that you might drown?

If no one will listen
If you decide to speak
If no one is left
Standing after the bombs explode
If no one wants to look at you
For what you really are
I will be here still

No one can tell you where you alone must go
There’s no telling what you will find there
And god I know the fear that eats away at your bones
Screaming every step, “Just stay here”

If no one will listen
If you decide to speak
If no one is left
Standing after the bombs explode
If no one wants to look at you
For what you really are
I will be here still

If you find your fists are raw and red from beating yourself down
If your legs have given out under the weight
If you find that you’ve been settling for a world of gray
So you wouldn’t have to face down your own hate

If no one will listen
If you decide to speak
If no one is left
Standing after the bombs explode
If no one wants to look at you
For what you really are
I will be here still

If no one will listen
If you decide to speak
If no one is left
Standing after the bombs explode
If no one wants to look at you
For what you really are
I will be here still
I will be here still

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?

don’t waste your time

Thursday, August 2nd, 2007

It’s over, it’s over, it’s over

It seems you can’t hear me
When I open my mouth, you never listen
You say ‘stay’, but what does that mean
Do you think I honestly want to be reminded
Forever?

Don’t waste your time trying to fix
What I want to erase
What I need to forget
Don’t waste your time on me, my friend
‘Friend’, what does that even mean?
I don’t want your hand,
You’ll only pull me down.
So save your breath
Don’t waste your song on me (on me) on me (on me)
Don’t waste your time
(It’s over)

It’s not easy not answering
Every time I want to talk to you
But I can’t.
If you only knew the hell I put myself through
Replaying memories in my head of you and I
Every night

Don’t waste your time trying to fix
What I want to erase
What I need to forget
Don’t waste your time on me, my friend
‘Friend’, what does that even mean?
I don’t want your hand,
You’ll only pull me down.
So save your breath
Don’t waste your song on me (on me) on me (on me)
Don’t waste your time

You’re calling
You’re talking
You’re trying
Trying to get in
But it’s over, it’s over
It’s over, ‘friend’

Don’t waste your time trying to fix it
So save your breath
Don’t waste your song on me (on me) on me (on me)
Don’t waste your time
(It’s over)

You held me
You felt me
You left me
But it’s over, it’s over, it’s over
You touched me
You had me
But it’s over, it’s over
It’s over, my ‘friend’
Don’t waste my time

how i feel

Wednesday, August 1st, 2007

Looks like I made a mess again
Heartbreak everywhere I step
This fire is getting hot again
But I touch the flame ‘cause I’m a curious cat
Creeping where I don’t belong
Finding out what I knew all along
Crying all alone
And it’s all my fault, all my fault
Yeah, I did it again, again

Oh, I’m getting tired of believing
Even sicker of pretending
That it’s not so bad, just wait it out
Oh, I think you’re feeding me lies again
The only good man left wasn’t him
And that’s how I feel right now so just let me be
Let me be

It seems every time I find a good man
He’s got a good little wife
I’m not jealous but I won’t lie
I don’t want to hear about your wonderful life
And babies everywhere I look
Trophy wives with their little black books
At this rate I’m gonna end up alone
It’s probably all my fault, all my fault
Oh, another dead end again

Oh, I’m getting tired of believing
Even sicker of pretending
That it’s not so bad, just wait it out
Oh, I think you’re feeding me lies again
The only good man left wasn’t him
And that’s how I feel right now

Bitter pill that I’ve swallowed
Just how low can my heart sink
Fairy tales from so long ago
Save them for someone that’s not smart enough to know

‘Cause I, I’m getting tired of believing
I’m through pretending
Yeah I’m broken and sad so I’ll sit this one out
Oh I think you’re feeding me lies again
The only good man left wasn’t him
And that’s how I feel right now

How I feel right now
How I feel right now
How I feel right now
Let me be
How I feel right now
How I feel right now
How I feel right now
Let me be

behind these hazel eyes

Sunday, September 11th, 2005

Seems like just yesterday
You were a part of me
I used to stand so tall
I used to be so strong
Your arms around me tight
Everything, it felt so right
Unbreakable, like nothin’ could go wrong
Now I can’t breathe
No, I can’t sleep
I’m barely hanging on

Here I am, once again
I’m torn into pieces
Can’t deny it, can’t pretend
Just thought you were the one
Broken up, deep inside
But you won’t get to see the tears I cry
Behind these hazel eyes

I told you everything
Opened up and let you in
You made me feel alright
For once in my life
Now all that’s left of me
Is what I pretend to be
Sewn together, but so broken up inside
‘Cause I can’t breathe
No, I can’t sleep
I’m barely hangin’ on

Here I am, once again
I’m torn into pieces
Can’t deny it, can’t pretend
Just thought you were the one
Broken up, deep inside
But you won’t get to see the tears I cry
Behind these hazel eyes

Swallow me then spit me out
For hating you, I blame myself
Seeing you it kills me now
No, I don’t cry on the outside
Anymore…

Here I am, once again
I’m torn into pieces
Can’t deny it, can’t pretend
Just thought you were the one
Broken up, deep inside
But you won’t get to see the tears I cry
Behind these hazel eyes

Here I am, once again
I’m torn into pieces
Can’t deny it, can’t pretend
Just thought you were the one
Broken up, deep inside
But you won’t get to see the tears I cry
Behind these hazel eyes
