Romeo

Walking around this town
watching everyone pass me by
thinking about a girl
i met yesterday
until i pass a window
look in
and behind the counter
the calling from my chest
i continue walking
thinking about the girl i saw today

Hey there!
I'm a lovesick freak
you can call me romeo
every girl i so call love
i leave for another
to be left alone once more
time after time
is there a cure
for my illness?
or is this poison my escape?
from this road
of shattered hearts i walk on

Look girl it's not you
it's her
I love you
but i love her a lil more
or so says the echoes
from the empty hole in my chest

Why can't i hold down a relationship
without being daring enough to nuke it
when a month passes
i'll be crawling back
cutting my hands with the broken glass
of your tattered heart
someone tell me
someone save me
Oz oh dear wizard
please grant me a sturdy heart

Hey there!
I'm a lovesick freak
you can call me romeo
every girl i so call love
i leave for another
to be left alone once more
time after time
is there a cure
for my illness?
or is this poison my escape?
from this road
of shattered hearts i walk on

Hey there!
I'm a lovesick freak
you can call me romeo
every girl i so call love
i leave for another
to be left alone once more
time after time
is there a cure
for my illness?
or is this poison my escape?
from this road
of shattered hearts i walk on

Oh my gosh, I love your stuff! I can feel your pain, hear your voice say every word. It's so beautiful. Keep it up, and I want to tell you that no matter how far away hope may seem, there's someone out there who can make it all better. When it seems like you'll never find forever, someone will come around and finally find a way to hold you down. And no matter how bad a condition youu find your heart in, it can always be healed by true love. Just stick it out.

I loved this.

I wrote a song called, "Hey there, Juliet." Thought it was neat we had sort of the same idea. (:

This was really awesome! I've been on the receiving end of that kind of thing, and it was kind of nice to read something that made me understand what went on in his head. I agree with Elena--it's nice to see someone being honest.
