Just Another Drink

February 23rd, 2011

Just one more sip
But somehow the bottle’s already gone
It never stays full for long
She lays in her room
She knows nothing’s okay
She knows she’s right
But it’s all wrong

Through a night’s sleep
The day disappears
It just disappears
It’s already gone

Just another drink
And another bottle
Things fall apart
The roots so deep
What you’ve come to be
Just another drink

So unforgiving
It won’t leave her glass
This isn’t her
It’s all just a blur
But I see so clear
The ending so near
Of my loss of faith

Another drop
And my heart stops
It can no longer feel

I’ve become so numb
I’m just too young
To know who you’ve become
Would you want that for me
To do as I see
To give up everything
For just another drink

Alone (With You)

January 19th, 2011

I dream of you
What if it’s true
What if we were meant to be
Just you and me
But it’s only a dream
And I wake up alone
And I’m still at home
And you’re gone
Your lips were so close
Now so far away
I don’t know where they went
I don’t know where they lay
I know you’ve seen me
I know you stare
But so far away
You’re never there
Do you think of me
The way that I do
Or am I alone
Are you alone too
I don’t know you
I only wish I did
You’re the kind of person
I just can’t forget
You’re engraved in my mind
I can always see you smile
And when you’re gone
It’s only for a while
Cause down the street
That’s where you stay
And though it’s close
You’re too far away

The Dark

January 7th, 2011

I flew across the room
Feeling something I’d never felt before
Lifted up
To have you walk out the door
In the dark
You showed me light
And being with you
Somehow felt so right
But the warmth was taken
And I was left alone
I didn’t like the feeling
Being on my own
I was in the dark
I was feeling so blind
And you were already gone
Without me in mind
