I thought you'd show,

but you never came.
I thought you'd know

this isn't a game.
I thought you'd glow even in rain,

yet somehow


I was mistaken.

I wanted you to hear

but you never wait.
I wanted you clear

but you can't see straight.
I wanted you near

but here i am in hate


waiting for something



that was mistaken.

I thought you could fly,

but you have no wings.
I thought you would cry

but it's only me that this stings.
I thought you would try

but i can't pull anymore strings,


the last straw is gone



I'm cutting you loose.

I know now why,

but i still want an answer.
I know you could try,

but you can fall back faster.
I know we could fly,

but maybe we'll break.

Perhaps it's a risk you're willing to take.

Perhaps this is real, no longer fake.

Perhaps theres a chance we can make.

Perhaps this time, i wont wake

from what i thought was life


was only a dream.
