"The manner in which we live and that in which we ought to live are things so wide asunder that he who quits the one to betake himself in the other is more likely to destroy than to save himself." ~Niccolo Machiavelli

So let us find the balance.

On the days like today
When you feel so far away
I wonder how I came to be
Wonder how you made me see
That I have more worth than I know
And that I can chose to let it show
Yet somehow I let the masochist in me
Destroy all the good I had; everything serene
I lost all sense of self because I gave up on myself
I’m sorry I disappointed you; I’m sorry I lost

I’ve tipped the balance that’s so necessary in this messed up world
But I still want to try, want to hope; I’m just scared
I lost my way before and now I don’t know …. Anything

I need… something simple
I want… you
I see… how the world is, and how it should be
I feel… the rift between the two growing
I want something simple
I need you.

You taught me everything good
And I just turned away
I feel like the worst person in the world
And still you tell me I’m worth more
I don’t understand why you chose me
I never used to be so insecure why did I do this to myself
I just don’t get I did to get here, to lose all I worked towards

I tipped the balance that’s so necessary
Now I just hope I can find it again; I’m just scared
So I push every ounce of help away; except, you know… you

I need… simplicity
I want… you
I see… our growing rift
I feel… responsible
I want something simple
I need you … I think.

I take back my one regret in life
The one mistake that lead to every s*** faced thing I’ve dealt with
But I don’t take back my decision to turn to you
That was my best choice
You’re my best choice.
I need something simple…. Your smile
I want you… to help me through
I see the differences… I find a balance
I feel it growing… I thank you
I want something simple all the time
I guess that’s why I need you.
