The Back Burner

I heard you calling my name in an echoing whisper I saw a bird take wing in the whirling wind of disaster I put my weary head on your broad shoulders The moment we touched, I was broken boulders I thought I was latching on to someone so trustworthy and positive I assume you don't wanna resume with this relationship that made a wrong turn... I believe in love, but it has made me weak inside...as a result, it's fairly negative I bloom like a lily in spring in the pond of rain pain, still feeling rejection's burn and the ocean's emotions churn When is it my turn to shine on Like the break of dawn? The break of dawn is soon to be gone for good and this ominous sadness goes on and on and on I was le-e-eft in the back burner in ancient times I was astonished to hear the clever clock chimes I was alarmed by your sudden departure You were gone out of my life forever...and ever... I was messed with several times here and there There you go again, piling up in my mind... Feeling tattered and threadbare Threatened by your tone of voice...a gold I cannot find, A-a-and I've tried to search for you...the smoke making me blind Oooooh mmmm x3 I did more harm than good I guess I ain't good blood... Sick and tired of being misunderstood... You turned me off, snapping off the morning wood... Not really in the greatest mood... Set me free from your solitude that has made my barriers so much harder to fight off Upsetting me...don't stop resenting the evil deeds of mankind's society, you and I had enough! Life is getting too tough... Being in my skin is rough... I wasn't thinking straight I couldn't help but hesitate Am I too late to change? I need to turn around and count my change and find time to rearrange I was le-e-eft in the back burner in ancient times I was astonished to hear the clever clock chimes I was alarmed by your sudden departure You were gone out of my life forever...and ever... I was messed with several times here and there There you go again, piling up in my mind... Feeling tattered and threadbare Threatened by your tone of voice...a gold I cannot find, A-a-and I've tried to search for you...the smoke making me blind Oooooh mmmm x3 Oh bless my soul that's been split in two Although I loved you so, can't stop remembering what you do... What you did to me and the things you put me through, you know? You let the Shame show Rumor is spreading aglow You didn't even blow... My mind with your blessings that you bestow I'm shapeless like an octopus in the sea I'm relentless like the lion in hunting mode I'm restless like the owl in the night of vibrancy You punched in the code to bring me back to my one and only admirable abode...hold up, let me sing you this ode...from my hound heart, Wisdom from the old Left untold, but I am bold I am shivering, for it's too cold For you to say that your heart's already sold To another guy that can hold in so much pressure and can carry a large load I was le-e-eft in the back burner in ancient times I was astonished to hear the clever clock chimes I was alarmed by your sudden departure You were gone out of my life forever...and ever... I was messed with several times here and there There you go again, piling up in my mind... Feeling tattered and threadbare Threatened by your tone of voice...a gold I cannot find, A-a-and I've tried to search for you...the smoke making me blind Oooooh mmmm x3 The world of woe Is calling your name It would like to know If you should take the blame Shame...on you... You left me in the back burner The actions that you do The words were hot as a heater The past shan't be undo I wish you well in your future journeys I wish you luck to catch the blessed breeze Praying for you to have peace of mind We're only human and we're awfully blind, but He doesn't mind One bit I suppose Our time is coming to a close You are a rose that sprouts words of prose You are beautiful and I particular adore your nose Tell me if you need me If you want me badly Xoxo me all over Oxox me till it's over I was a bit of a loner But now, I have a social ***** Don't say it's all over Because you are the weeds and I the clover Pull them out and dig deep in the roots Then, you'll clearly see the filth that I shook off my cowboy boots I was le-e-eft in the back burner in ancient times I was astonished to hear the clever clock chimes I was alarmed by your sudden departure You were gone out of my life forever...and ever... I was messed with several times here and there There you go again, piling up in my mind... Feeling tattered and threadbare Threatened by your tone of voice...a gold I cannot find, A-a-and I've tried to search for you...the smoke making me blind Oooooh mmmm x3 Have you no shame? Have you no shame at all... Hunting me down like game You ignored my call...my xoxo call... End the lullabies of lamentation Mend the heart that's torn apart Don't offend me or I'll be raped by frustration Send me more than enough of your love...my finest, most precious...gracious art I see that you aren't impressed with me My feelings I expressed aren't important, I see? Amaze me Flare my soul My only plea Is to bang at my skull With your sensational bliss That will wipe away all loneliness To the bottom to the top, Don't stop touching me, oh please don't stop till I produce fruit like a crop I am like a shoe-shop, you have the option to shop and drop before you get caught by the cop I was le-e-eft in the back burner in ancient times I was astonished to hear the clever clock chimes I was alarmed by your sudden departure You were gone out of my life forever...and ever... I was messed with several times here and there There you go again, piling up in my mind... Feeling tattered and threadbare Threatened by your tone of voice...a gold I cannot find, A-a-and I've tried to search for you...the smoke making me blind Oooooh mmmm x3 Shooting me down while I gathered up Head in the dumps, but feet in the sky Giving up after giving in to failure...served to me in a wine cup My foolish brain spins around in circles and I don't know why I even try I even try
