Don't you worry your pretty little mind, people throw rocks at things that shine.


It’s lonely being alone,

but sometimes it’s for the best.

       Somebody just hold me, please.

It’s hard to explain when you can’t

because explaining makes things worse.

       I can’t speak words.

I miss somebody I don’t even know

I wish I had a somebody to know.

       I’m in love with someone I haven’t met.

It’s hard when I can’t tell you I love you

because I know you won’t be there to say it back

       Find my fire, and ignite it.

Waiting hurts, and not knowing scares me

when fate won’t take my hand and dare me.

       Just give me a sign; anything.

I know being patient is a good thing,

but is it really when it drives people insane?

       Time is the one thing I can’t give you.

I want you more as the sadder I get,

because no one will love me back to health like you.

       I’m stuck in a well and no one knows.

I feel like if I find you everything will make sense

even though we’d be living in a perfect imperfection.

       You’re the only person I have left.

Am I selfish for wanting the only person who wants me?

If everyone around me gets to be happy, why can’t I?

       God knows I’m bad at puzzles.

Deciding to love you was the best decision I made,

but the worst was letting my heavy heart stay

       Right where you have it now: locked up.
