She seems so cool, so focused, so quiet, yet her eyes remain fixed upon the horizon. You think you know all there is to know about her immediately upon meeting her, but everything you think you know is wrong. Passion flows through her like a river of blood. She only looked away for a moment, and the mask slipped, and you fell. All your tomorrows start here. - Neil Gaiman, Fragile Things


When you sat in front of me and cried
Where I truly wanted to be was by your side
Instead I stayed where I was, fixed in place
I couldn't even dare to look in your face

When you told me what was bothering you
I'm sorry I didn't know what to say
Now I know that you wanted me to tell you
Don't worry everything's gonna be okay

I realize that I was disappointing
It's truly such a bizarre feeling
You needed me to reverse your frown
Instead I had to go and let you down

Do you know how many times
I longed to go back to the past?
But instead I'm stuck looking for rhymes
I wish time didn't have to go away so fast

Now I know what you needed
I'm sorry I wasn't there to give it
All that you wanted
Was for me to be a friend
