You Aimed at My Head

March 10, 2008

You aimed at my head
With a blank stare in your eyes
Missed and shot my heart instead

I can never forget those words you said
They are now only secrets and lies
You aimed at my head

I think I would rather be dead
But I dodged as the bullet flied
Missed and shot my heart instead

Come to think of it, why did I eat those words you said?
What spell did you cast to sheild my eyes?
You aimed at my head

Now that its over you fled
Without even saying goodbyes
Missed and shot my heart instead

Because of you these layers I'll shed
And maybe I'll grow stronger over time
You aimed at my head
Missed, and shot my heart instead
