lines

By
a contradiction in terms
And you’re the last one to learn
If this is the worst it gets, ill place my bets
that you’re a gamble at best
on a quiet night you lose the light
but in the dark you’ll lose the fight
i'm cutting power lines.

Just sights and sounds. Not touch.
It does hurt this much.
I’ll sell my soul and make you pay
But not today. Just stay.
I’m turning down a chance at fire
With a lit match and a burning desire
I’m staying between the lines.

Don’t deny the distance
It eats away at our existence
I can’t feel you.
Take a chance on a challenge
Surprise yourself. I’m beside myself.
I can’t feel you. not you.
I’m laying it on the line.

You say that now you’ve settled the score
But you were a liar long before.
Open the door. Stay awake for me.
I’ll be there. You’ll see.
You’ll see.
Crossing state lines.
