When I Scream

September 11, 2011
And with every breath my heart is aching
And I try to make a home for my own sake
But it's cluttered up and I can't fix it.
So I try not to remember it.

And I'm not lying when I say I want to stop fighting and love you
Just some other way
All this raw emotion that we're throwing
On top of all the blame.

When we fight and when you're screaming
I only think of days gone by
When I was young and new
And didn't know any better
There's a feather in your hat to help your pride.


I swear one more fight
This is draining me of all my might
All this sorrow that I never asked for
I'm far too scared to cry


When I drop my guard for just one second
You're ready to invade
Come and wash away my jokes and laughter
Build yourself a temple
And make me shout your name


And just because it doesn't suit you
Doesn't make it wrong for me to love
Oh all the ups and downs ever rolling
Falling and I can't handle it.


The thing that break me the most
Is all the hate we host
It's tearing both our hearts apart
And of you want me this way then I'm not going to stay
So farewell a thousand times good day.
