I look at you and I don't want you 
Stopped needing your kiss and touch
Needed you to love me for me
Tried to get you to do your part
Make memories and cherish those made
Buried in depression
Covered in guilt and pain
Still I stayed
Looking for a way out
Wanting to be anywhere but here
Going across the bridge I want to drive off
Fly into the sky
Fall into the river below
'Til death do us part

    very heart felt. funny i should run accross this now. when it should mean so much to me personally. speek these words to me ; in person and i'll change. i'll make a bond stronger than any marriage could be. i'll join my soul with thee if you would but agree. but only be brave, speek these words to me.
