I thought it was 'butterflies in my stomach'
I was so excited to be in a new place and try new things...
Two minutes later I threw up on the side of the street.
I thought I was shaking because you send shivers up and down my spine
Your hair, your eyes and that smile...
It was cold and I only had my T-shirt on that night
I though it was destiny that we, in this place together
Are bound by fate to be companions...
It was a coincidence and two different agendas
I thought I was having a picnic under the stars
Laying on my back, with the moon pouring down...
It was a street lamp and the concrete was cold and wet
I thought that you were a friend
You and I to the ends of the earth...
You were just a passerby, who taught me a lesson that I'd have rather not learnt
so early in life
I hear they say that pain is growth turned inside out
It better be true...
My body hurts like hell this morning, I hope that my spirit will grow from this
Drinking...a twisted mirage
