Treasure Island

Jared Bradford

Repetition


I can say so much
How I feel, what I do
But my feelings aren't the same
When I am without you

I see all my friends
Up and Go, happy, restless
I try to paint a picture of love
And it seems impossible to sketch this

And they have their problems
I give advice on how to be
So much that I go home
Theres none left for me

It's so hard to
Keep my mental filter
When danger comes my way
I go straight for shelter

But no, no more
I won't be done down
I'm going to get up and go
Put a smile to my frown

I can ramble on and on
About what to do or say
What matters is when I take action
Cause that will be the day

The day I stop hiding
The day I start shining
To be all I can be
My life would be defining

I'd belong in a dictionary
Next to definition
The only road to greatness
Is the act of repetition

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
