Liquor of Lament: My Glass is Half Full
Verse 6: I've given up love countless times
I needed to pay up for my heartbroken crimes
I already repented for my sins that made my high hopes paper-thin
Don't you feel that envy from deep within?
Searching around, wondering where you've been
Wander with me in the forest of faith and hear me out if you are all ears
Trying our best to pass the test that we detest
Innocence clothed us before we lost it all through smiles and tears
Years later, we're still together, even when we rest...even though I act like a pest...
I'm impressed that you dealt with me so easily
I'm a smarter hard worker ever since you set me free
I'm a survivor
I'm so much wiser
I'm a giver, not a taker
I'm not a heartbreaker or a forsaker
I'm a creator of healing grace unlike any other, so much joyful fruit to gather
Positive auras is what I get from the wisdom of our mighty Father
Verse 7: I'm only human, so I'll be making my mistakes
I'm a lonely man, so I'll be praying for chances to belong
I'm only human, so I'll be drinking the liquor of lament
I'm a dog without an owner, so I'm writing this sad, yet from-the-heart song
All my life, I've sharpened the knife of Shame
Shadows consume me and reflections haunt me...my past is a hideous name
My high spirits can't be tamed...I'm not the one to blame...
You came to me, you came to me and gave me wings to break free
In the darkness of my oblivion to illuminate me...
Never exiting this ecstasy next to sea
Verse 8: Closing my eyes for the remedy of rest I've yearned for
Posing like a model next to a camera...snap pictures and explore
You are my drug of delight and I want you more and more
You picked me off of the filthy floor
I lay in clouds of regretless love that I covet
I can't get enough of it...so glad we met
You made me wet with pleasures so swell
Our kisses and hugs ring a bell...you were a friend that treated me so well
You're my heaven and I'm your hell...you forgave me for being selfish I can tell
Never should've drank that liquor of lament
That liquor, liquor, liquor of lament...not broken, just bent
Verse 9: I made that mistake that I can't undo...
Now I'm left to repent for the wrong I didn't mean to do
I didn't mean to do
I'll blame it on my luv floo
You made me love you too
How could you?
I said hello to you; but in return, I get a goodbye of rue
I aimed for the stars, but instead, I hit the moon
Take your time as you and I sing a most familiar tune
We are young in heart still...
Don't you act like a deadly pill...
Stop pulling my heart strings
Your rage is like a bee that stings
I engage in the sensuality of my soul
You're my lightingale and my clever tool
You're the bleak poison that makes me weak
I'm avoiding another glass of fake gladness...I want to be sober and meek
So, don't speak...
I don't want to hear your prideful greediness
I don't want to hear your madness, your sadness, your lack of progress
Take all of me if I'm the boy you want
Take all of me if I'm the boy you need
Take all of me
Take all of me
Before time runs out
Before hope turns to doubt
Verse 10: Life is card game
Strife won't leave me be
My wild child heart needs to be tame
Oh I see, you don't love me
Our sex wasn't enough
I didn't give it to you rough
I tried to act smart and tough
But I'm dealing with some difficult stuff
Take a bite into me
I'm the good apple that's pleasant for the eyes to see
Lick me up and down
I'm the tattoo mark on your skin,
I'm your lover, your beloved kin...that covers up your sin
I'm the bandaid on your bullet wound of glory
I'm the tourniquet to your broken leg of inability
You're the seed that planted itself in me
You're the greed that took away my humble me, you see?
Verse 11: Be considerate and keen for once in your life
Why do your harsh words cut like a jagged knife?
Oh no, I can't hold on to this anger, boiling in my blood
Oh no, your paradise was spent on someone better than me...what's up with that, bud?
Pin me down with your heavy load of appealing pleasure beyond measure
No kidding, you are the best compared to the rest that's for sure
My heads under the surface of hopelessness Your head is in the clouds of solace
What's wrong with that picture?
You don't appreciate the hardships that I endure
Your loyalty and patience is what I need
Your adoration is beyond sensation...I'm your top-notch weed
Verse 12: Your magical touch is too much to bear...you're the golden armor I wear
You're the surreal song on the radio - turn it up a hair
Everyone stops and stares at us as we run up the stairs
You are my dream of reality that I dreamt of During nostalgic nights without you by my side
You are the white dove of peace and pure love
Abide by my side, my darling devil...where do you hide?
Please don't hide...
Take me on a bumpy ride
Bridge: I'm the valley and you're the mountain
You're the flourishing flowers and I'm the fretful fountain
You're my muse that rings in my head so true...you're the happy blues
You're my black and white checkered rose in the field of gracious good news
The world of woe seems to beat me down
With mood swings and tragedy that burns on...
I'm a clown, wearing a frown
I'm the dusk before nightfall and you're the dazzling dawn
I make out with my mesmerizing sunrise right before my eyes,
Right before my eyes, yeah
Reminds me of you on your happy-go-lucky days
I'm sorry that we went our separate ways...oh, our own separate ways
Now, I'm gulping up liquor of lament
Liquor, liquor, liquor of lament
A guilt that overflows
Clearly, my shame shows
The wicked wind surely blows
When you and I express our highs and lows
Ooooh ooooh ooooh...
Ooooh ooooh ooooh...
Our highs and lows
(Spoken) You walked out that door
You left me with the one you adore
You pity yourself, but I ain't buying your product of insecurity
You belittle me with your rebellious spirit of nothing close to empathy
You're a rebel and a liar
I'm the hero and a warrior
Don't put a label on me
Because I will burst in flames of anger and hostility
I resent the person I've become
Now, I'm feeling empty and numb
Catch me as I fall and make me feel whole as well
Attach me to your passionate heart of titanium...can't help but be under your spell
