You Were Not Worth The Trouble
If our paths haven't crossed by now,
I'm sure they will soon.
I mean, you're all dressed up,
and sitting across the room.
Why did I come all this way tonight?
Surely it wasn't to watch the trees blow in the moonlight.
With the windows up, and the wind blowing in,
I smell your scent, I smell you and,
your house is packed with all your friends,
at least I'm one of them, am I one of them?
So the time's coming for us,
to finally head back.
And hey, maybe, just maybe,
I'll see you in class.
Why don't you stop by and say 'Hi' in the lunch ...
Thinking And Walking
Walking on train tracks,
noticing how my shadow is fat,
but at least I know it has my back,
no matter how bad I act,
at least it has my back.
Walking down the sidewalk,
listening to the birds talk,
stepping on worlds of chalk,
