Bring Your Alibis

You take these words upon me
Because you know the truth hurts
As the twilight dims what I see
But your lies hurt me worse

Feel the sin dripping from your lips
From every kiss
They told you
What I don’t know
Wont hurt me
But baby,
If I don’t know
You love
It’ll kill me
Feel me
Between your cold words
Feel me
Feel all of my hurt

Shying away from whats your life
Take my hands, my mind, my heart
Set this right
Or watch me fall apart
Shatter to pieces

Hiding inside your sketchy alibis
Because you can’t set this right
An alibi or just another lie
About your wanderings at night

So you take my hand
And hold it so close to your shame
You take my heart
And give it all your blame

I know I live for you
But how can I die for you
When you don’t know what you do to me
It’ll kill me
If you don’t love me

Twist your truth,
Twist my sorrows
A scene for your abuse
Laid for tomorrow
Im always waiting
For your eyes to scream
Im always waiting
For your eyes to scream
The truth
Of the lies
Bring your alibis
And I’ll bring mine
Until time
Has brought me back to truth

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
