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 ...
One Chance Tonight
Walking on glass, a wasted mass.
Step through time, don’t get stuck, entwined.
Throw thoughts farther than stones, stop pondering alone.
While feeling through braille, looking so pale,
when light’s darker than the dark veins in your heart.
The blood rush is ripping insides apart.
With no one, journey through flower beds, fall on stems.
Don’t recognize friends, when you couldn’t make it without them.
