Favorite Quote:
Life has the name of life, but in reality it is death.

Grave digger, when you dig my grave
Could you make it shallow
So that I may feel the rain?
These fickle fuddled words confuse me,
Like will it rain today?
We’re strange allies with warring hearts,
Look at us,
Spinning out in the madness of a roller coaster.
The space between what’s wrong and right
Is where you’ll find me hiding,
Waiting for you.
Rip away the tears,
Drink a hope for happy years.
I find sometimes it’s easy to be myself,
Sometimes I find it’s better to be somebody else.
One year of cryin’ and the words creep up inside,
Creep into your mind.
There’s blood in the water, don’t drink the water.
I am no superman and I have no answers for you.
But I do know one thing, where you go is where I wanna be.
You’ve got your ball, you’ve got your chain
Tied to me tight, tie me up again.
Into your heart I’ll beat again,
Lost for you, I’m so lost for you.
You and me, we can do anything baby.

In creative writing we had to write a poem of lyrics from our favorite songs. I love Dave Matthews.
