First day of freshman year
I'm feeling excitement mixed with fear
After a few days
The fear begins to fade
But the excitement stays
Everything is so new
And there's so much to do
Brown-eyed boy of sixteen
Instant attraction like a movie scene
Being fourteen and having low self-e...
They aver to procure
an apathy for one is to stumble
upon another who engrosses your mind more. I, however,
have subsided with neither the affection of another chap
nor a hankering to accept felicity from
the one who aggrieved me....
The pain I used to hide
Is starting to go away
It's somewhere deep inside
But fading with every passing day
She's coming back
The girl who never dressed in black
The one who was always happy
Even when things are really crappy
Her only tears were ones of laughter
Had all the co...
You're the reason I don't speak
I'm passive and meek
Defenseless and weak
The tears flow like a creek
As I cry myself to sleep
Every day of every week
Watch as my heart bleeds
All you do is feed

Hanging onto every word
To act like fools
Breaking all the rules
To live in the moment
Always bliss and enjoyment
And never think about the end
Where does it all begin
How do you fall in

Even though I could tell
That it wasn't there anymore
I wanted us to still be well
But it was like a disease without a cure
The toxic relationship ate away at my core
I could see it in you too
Making it work was such a chore
There wasn't much else we could do
When it came to an...
I wish I could rewind
And turn back the time
To when the puzzle pieces always fit
And the right words seemed to rhyme
If only I could go back
To when my soul was lit
And wasn't filled with black
My heart nothing but a bottomless pit
To when I didn't wear
My heart on my sleeve ...
One good look was all it took
My heart melted like butter
He could read me like a book
And his presence was enough to make me stutter
I thought we would just be friends and nothing more
Until he told me that I was the one he adored
I'd had others, but none like him
Part of me wanted to...
