Find You

I just want to find you
But I really need to find myself
I’m getting lost
Caught up in the past
I can’t accept you’re gone
And out of my grasp
It can’t be true
You’re all I’ve breathed for three years
You’ve made me laugh
And you’ve stopped the tears
From rolling down my cheeks
And into the river of misery
I seem to be drowning in

I come off strong and end up weak
There’s more behind this mascara streak
If only we were two years younger and five years wiser
We would’ve lived it all

You can’t help but watch
He lies to her
He says no one loves her the way he does
You’ve just gotta endure
All the pain cause she’s happy
Not as happy as you could’ve made her

She comes off strong and ends up weak
There’s more behind her mascara streak
If only we were two years younger and five years wiser
We would’ve lived it all
You wanna tell her
You need to find her
You wanna tell her
You’ve gotta want her

I’m just like you but still don’t realize
You’ve gotta feel the same way as me
All I do is stay up all night
Thinking of you
Sleeping all day
Dreaming of what we could
But those days are gone

I made a mistake and lost myself out there
And now I’m losing you
I never stop thinking of what I’ve gotta do
For you to see that you mean everything to me
I made a mistake and pushed you out
My insecurities
My fears, my never ending doubts
Overtook every good feeling your smile gave me

I came off strong and ended up weak
There’s more behind my mascara streak
If I could go back and tell you one thing
It’d be to never let me go and to sing
Our melancholy song again
If you could tell me one thing

You come off strong and end up weak
There’s more behind your mascara streak
If only we were two years younger and five years wiser
We would’ve lived it all
We would’ve lived it all
We would’ve lived it all
You only wish you could.

This is very deep, and I think you should look for your self. because when you find you, you won't need him be cause you'll be whole, and complete. I know that sounds weird coming from me,it's true. And I am doing just that. Read 'Keats' I think you'll like him.

Your comment reminded me of the Train song "Drops of Jupiter". There's that line..."Did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there?"
Haha, anyway, thank you! It means a lot to me that you commented, and I will definately look at 'Keats'.
