“Ah, yes, you want to be a writer don’t you?”

“You say that as if it’s a bad thing”

“No, no. just a lonely thing. Sometimes the world you create on the page seems more friendly than the lives in the world you actually live in.


You put your foot on my chest,
You clench your fist 'round my heart
You make me feel suppressed,
Like we never had a start.
You're always holding me down
With one more of list of rules
I feel like a clown
When I try to impress you.

CHORUS:
Always wrong, but wait I'm right
You're always coming home too late at night
Don't have to explain yourself to me
I know now you're just not right for me.

You call out to me
Begging like a movie
You say it's been a year,
I say you're still not home.
You want one more chance,
But not tonight,
I'm the crazy one for not looking at the time.

CHORUS

You say I blame you
For all that's wrong in my life
I say I do love you
But you only make me cry
I keep running up
You always stop me short
Saying I'm far too eager
And not a good sport.

CHORUS

"But I'm running for you!"
I start to say
"Back and forth like a clown every day!"
You hold up your hand and tell me to stop
We're not a movie,
So I don't pretend to be strong
I'm begging you to just wake up and move on
Take me to dances
We'll fall back in love.
But then I realize that's not enough
So I stand up slow, you start to look stunned.

I brush myself off,
Wipe down my eyes
And I sang you this song
To tell you goodbye.

♥ I've made mistakes in my life. i've let people take advantage of me, and i accepted way less than i deserve. But, i've learned from my bad choices, and even though there are some things i can never get back and people who will never be sorry. i'll know better next time and i wont settle for anything less than i deserve. ♥

This Is good!

I Love IT!
