HELLO AWKWARD, TAKE A BITE OUT OF THIS TENSION SANDWICH

Does it upset you that what you want is no longer what I want? 
That your urges make me smile?  (In a devious manner)
That watching you hold back, feeling that tension between us,
It just feels,

so

                                     damn

                                                                                        good?

Because I’ve found something so much
Better,
And I can look at you and just not care anymore.
Your eyes full of this lost passion,
Screaming to find it within me..

                                                 …yet again.

But this time, this time I have more than you, I have more than me.
Something I wouldn’t have believed.
It’s opened me up, made me realize so much more about me, about life.
I will not be taken advantage of
You can no longer hold me hostage, bound within your words..

                                                                                                …your lies.

I’m not sorry I’m happy
I’m not sorry you can’t use me
I’m not sorry I can’t use you

                                              but it’s that little bit of tension that held us together

                               I’m sorry for that

And I’m sorry its gone

I let go
I gave up

             On the little hope of being something,
             And with that the little friendship we had

…turned sour

I am sorry for that
And I am sorry that it is gone…

A Little Piece of Something

I started to write this weeks ago,
I couldn't finish, I'm sure you know.
So now I've sat down to try again.
It's gone through changes cus of what's happened.

I remember that first day I saw you,
You were walking towards me, I looked away.
I was feeling clumsy, lost for words to say.
All I heard were good things about you,
Good things you proved true.

I need you to know you're a little piece of something,
I can't live without.
I hold your memory so close inside me,
Feelings I never understood, till I was lonely.

I yearn for your voice, I long for your touch.
I burn for the heat in every kiss you gave to me.
I need to know you're close, I need to know you care.
But most of all, I just need to know you're there.

All the colour is fading away,
My life is fading to shades of gray.
My tears crash down and break apart,
But now my tears become my heart.

You showed me a little piece of something,
I never thought could be.
I found a little piece of something,
Growing between you and me.

I yearn for your voice, I long for your touch.
I burn for the heat in every kiss you gave to me.
I need to know you're close, I need to know you care.
But most of all, I just need to know you're there.

I'm falling alone, I'm finding nothing on my own.
I'm losing control, I'm losing it all.
I can smile and I can laugh,
But it's not the same as it could be.
Sure, you can smile and you can laugh,
But it's not as good as it should be,
If you were with me.

I yearn for your voice, I long for your touch.
I burn for the heat in every kiss you gave to me.
I need to know you're close, I need to know you care.
But most of all, I just need to know you're there.

You hold my heart and you're unaware,
I wish that you were always there.
You hold my heart and you're unaware,
I wish that you were always there.
I just need you to know how I feel, 
I just need you to know how I feel,
Understand, my feelings are real.

I yearn for your voice, I long for your touch.
I burn for the heat in every kiss you gave to me.
I yearn for your voice, I long for your touch.
I burn for the heat in every kiss you gave to me.
I need to know you're close, I need to know you care.
But most of all, I just need to know you're there.

Hey Old Pal, Nice To See Nothing's Changed

Failure is a step up, when it comes to you.
Broken titles, whispered pasts.
No one's memories can last.

Tell me your pride, your secrets you hide.
Take a breath, open your eyes.
No one else could handle your lies.

Tied myself up again, looking around for a friend.
Remember when I looked to you?
Never thought the truth could be so, true.

Wrapped up in this tragically happy life of yours.
If you could be quiet for a moment, maybe you'd see.
You're all you'll ever let yourself amount to be.

It's a messed up world when you look out the window,
But take a look in the mirror,
Make your world a little more clear.

What's in front of your heart, holding the beat from the start.
Love and peace, hate and pain?
You think it all feels the same.

Success is a step down when it comes to you.
You waste no time, straight for the end.
Fairy tales don't tell you the ever after, because they can only end in failure.

Just step back for a moment, don't look to hard.
You'll hate to see that your life has started to rot.
Remove your eyes and see with your soul, failure is easy to spot.

A Gentle Thought To Brush Your Mind

Who said eternity was long
?It’s like a bittersweet song.
Horrible disaster collapsing in air.
Think you could lose, and not care

I’m right there with you,
In this stale selfless place.
Look back, think about it,
How fake they made you feel,
But still, it was so real.
Look inside, who are you now?
Flaking away in yesterday.
You’re not as alone as you probably should be,
Haunting your dreams of the life you see.

Let me tease your mind,
A tender touch, so kind.
Now stop for a moment and think,
Were they worth all that ink?

Forget who you are, forget everything you’ve been.
Look out into the distance, capture your sin.
It’s as easy as you want, but harder than you thought, 
Don’t lock yourself up, in fear of getting caught.

I’ll take a moment and drop my sorrow in a jar,
Breathe in who I am, and see who you are.
If I looked to you, would I still feel your hate?
Or with every ounce inside my soul, could I recreate?

Alone in the Sky

A lonely star, up in the sky, that's all I see from the city tonight.
But then you came, and made it two, I couldn't believe I fell in love with you.
And when you left, I stood alone, a lonely star in the sky tonight.
I shine alone, I shine out bright, I am the truth in the sky tonight.
I need no help, I want no fight, I stand alone in the sky tonight.

It's been quite a week, this week it's been everything.
Up, down, turn around, take me off the ground.
I know who you are, but I am lost inside this part of you and me, who are we supposed to be.

La da da da, la da da di da da da da (x2)

Don't tell me you love me, Don't tell me you need me.
Don't tell me you miss me, it's fate babe, it's destiny.
Don't tell me I don't know why
It'll just make me cry (x3)
I can already see it all in your eyes.

La da da da, la da da di da da da da (x2)

I shine alone, I shine out bright, I am the truth in the sky tonight.
I need no help, I want no fight, I stand alone in the sky tonight.

La da da da, la da da di da da da da (x2)

Knot

I can feel you breathing down my neck,
I can see you staring right through me. 
Nothing but a knot you want to untie.
Get me loose, take me home, 
Just tell me I'll regret it, and I'll be there.

There's a knot in my mind telling me to rewind.
Take a step back, pretend it's a fact.
Can't have nothing without something. 
And it's hard to say that I've lost my way,
With this knot pulling me behind. 

I want to forget but still regret,
Every moment and every step.
Let loose, let go, bury myself in the snow.

I can smell you in the room.
I can hear you humming that tune.
Pull me out of the snow.
I'll regret that I've let go.
But I'll let the knot take control,
For there's never more than an empty hole.

Distant Whispers

I wrote a beautiful song about you, last night.
I wrote it on the edge of falling asleep,
But I lose it all, in my dreams.

Sitting on the edge of sleeping,
Losing everything in dreams.
I'll get inside I'll steal my heart,
Ferocious feelings wont tear me apart.

To think one thought to run away,
I'll lose it all if I stay.

I can't give up, I can't give in,
My life with you, I'm sure to win.

Lead, lead my down into your heart.
Hold, hold me close to your heart.
And we, we will never be apart...
Not at heart.

Sitting on the edge of sleep,
Losing everything in dreams.
waiting for the alarm to beep,
Let's wake up, wake up together.
Let's stay here, stay here together.

You can't stop, you can't stop, 
You can't stop me from catching him,
With my eyes.
You can't stop, you can't stop,
You can't stop him from reaching out,
And holding me.
You can't stop, you can't stop,
You can't stop us from loving, 
Each other.

Don't, don't lose my hand through this nighttime.
I'll stay, stay in your sight, lets make this our time.

Sitting on the edge of sleep,
Losing everything in dreams.
Waiting for the alarm to beep,
Let's wake up, wake up together.
Let's stay here, stay here forever.

To think one thought to run away,
I'll lose it all, if I stay...

The Pieces

Give me the moment, take it away.
It's not enough but that's okay.
It's getting better everyday,
When there's a chance you'll lose your way.

Remind me of when i wanted you.
Cuz sometimes I think, I still do.
Who are you, wherefore and why?
Find me a reason and maybe I'll try.

I'll try to find the pieces.
I'll try to put them together.
I'll try to find your heart.
I'll try to make it stronger.

Lay beside me, run away.
Take my hand babe, please stay.
It's getting better in every way,
When we're coming closer to our dying day.

Remind me of when you wanted me.
Cuz sometimes I think maybe you'll see.
Who am I, wherefore and why?
Find you a reason and maybe you'll try.

You'll try to find the pieces.
You'll try to put them together.
You'll try to find my heart.
You'll try to make it stronger.

Give me the moment, take it away.
Lay beside me, run away.
Take my hand babe, please stay.
It's not enough but that's okay.

Remind me of when I wanted you.
Cuz sometimes I think I still do.
Who am I, wherefore and why?
Find me a reason and maybe I'll try.

I'll try to find the pieces.
I'll try to put them together.
I'll try to find your heart.
I'll try to make it stronger.

Run Away

Call the sickness out from under you,
Tell the people what is really true.
Know the pain that you all might feel,
But see the comfort in the truth revealed.

Run away, baby, run away.
Tell the world another day.
Run away, darling, run away.
Take a chance at another day.

Call the pain out from inside you,
Tell it all that you’re strong too.
Don’t let the sorrow come over you,
When you know that they’re with you too.

Run away, baby, run away.
Get away from this awful place.
Run away, darling, run away.
In the chance you’ll miss the pain.

Call the strength that dwells in you,
Tell it that, its time for truth.
Bring out your love that helps you through,
It’s time for you to be happy too.

Run away baby, run away.
Its easier if you leave this place.
Run away, darling, run away.
Lose yourself by it all again.

Call the lies out from that part of you,
Time for everyone to hear the truth.
Don’t let the fear control you,
When you know what you need to do.

Run away, baby, don’t run away.
It’s harder now if you stay.
But don’t run away...

One More Touch Baby, Just One More Touch

I know what you’re thinking, and I know what you want.
We’re almost there, and we haven’t been caught.
This isn’t as obvious as you may think,
One more touch baby, and one more drink.

I’ll show you how you can make my heart pound.
I’ll take you somewhere, we’ll never be found.
I’ll make it so obvious that you can clutch.
One more touch baby, just one more touch.

It’s not what I intended, its not what I thought,
Hunnie you’re falling apart, you’re beginning to rot!
Just loosen your lips, and open your mind.
I can be so mean, yet still be kind.

It’s not hard now, you’re almost there,
I can see you looking, I can feel your stare.
Just hold on tight, don’t let go.
It will feel fast, but really it’s slow.

On more touch baby, just one more touch.
You’ll make the difference, so it’ll seem as such.
I’ll pull you in for one last kiss,
Thanks dear friend for a night of bliss.
