Your eyes used to shine

you never did see
But now they’re cold and hard

but now we’re separated
You used to be mine

But now your heart is barred

we try but we can’t stay together
I used to love your voice

we’re like oil and water
Calling to say goodnight
But now all we do is fight
and I don’t see the light

c. we used to belong together
like seashells in the sand
on the beach were we used to walk
hand in hand
perfect sync, two peas in a pod
but now we don’t mix
like oil and water

I used to listen to you
You used to listen to me
But now we can’t agree
And you get angry
How did this battle begin
When did you stop loving me
When did I stop loving you

Nothing is going right
And maybe I’m starting to see the light

We tried so hard to make it right!
Sometimes things become clear in the dark
Of the night
No matter how we try to make it work
We separate again!

(softer:) we used to belong together
Seashells in the sand
You were my treasure
Thought we belonged together
(normal) we used to belong together
Seashells in the sand
The beach where we used to walk
Hand in hand
Perfect harmony
Two people more alike
you never did see
but now we’re separated
we try but we can’t stay together
we’re like oil and water

This is very pretty and well written, or sung :D

"No camera could catch the look in her eyes and the feeling in her heart when she looks at him."
"I love how you make me laugh when I don't even want to smile."
"If I had to chose between you and breathing, I would chose you and then I would use my last breath to tell you "I love you."
"And he asked “Is everything okay?” and she blinked away the tears and said, “Yeah, I’m totally happy for you.”
"In Kindergarten we learned about cooties, in middle school we learned about relationships, and in high school we learned the definition of heartbreak."
"Sometimes when I say “oh I’m fine” I just want you to look me in the eyes and say “tell the truth.”
“He looked at me and said “do you ever feel like you’re working for something you’re never going to get? A shoot + miss kind of deal. Like no matter what, you just can’t have it, but that makes you fight for it just a little bit more?” I looked at him, stared at him for just a second and said “everyday.”
"Never say I love you if you don’t really care. Never talk about feelings if they aren’t really there. Never touch a life if you mean to break a heart. Never say you’re going to if you’re not planning to start. Never look me in the eye when all you do is lie. Never say hello is all you mean is good-bye."
"We don’t talk anymore and I don’t understand why. It’s like you gave me wings and told me it was illegal to fly."
"My friends and I are the kind when a house burns down; we’re roasting marshmallows and crushing on the firemen."
