Lying

January 7th, 2011

Lying in the middle of the road
Where Shadowcrest met Chesbro
It never felt so right
With all those people around
But I could only see you
And then you were gone
I never had you
I’d be lying if I said I never wanted you
Lying down when you’re pacing my room
On the phone with her
All I wanted was those words for me
But they would never be
I’d be lying if I said I never loved you
Lying in my bed
Our lips are slowly meeting
But your phone is buzzing
Because she’s texting you
And I wished your eyes were only for me
But they couldn’t see
I’d still be lying if I said I never wanted you to love me

Spiders

May 10th, 2010

I know the truth but I fall false
I’m tangled up in a web of illusion
And in my heart I fear I’ve lied
I’m hoping for a conclusion
I pray to be right
But know that I’m wrong
My fingers have been crossed
And I’ve known all along
These spiders know the truth
And it slips through the cracks
And I fall to the floor
With the truth that it lacks
All these tears full of lies
And this heart about to burst
I was thinking of myself
When I should’ve put you first
And the rain’s falling slowly
And I think they think I’m crazy
But I think I’m forgetting
Because this is all getting hazy
And when I wake up I’m gone
In an unfamiliar place
And the lies are all around
Written right across my face
And they all left me here
Because the rain left me showing
The truth is uncovered
And the spiders kept going
They opened my wounds
And left me to die
In a sticky little web
I built from this lie

Hello

March 9th, 2010

A kiss still lingers
On my cheek
Was once so strong
Now feels so weak
Set me up
To feel so high
Then disappear
With no goodbye
Time keeps moving
I feel so old
And though I feel numb
I still feel cold
The pain is real
The pain is fake
I fell in love?
Yeah, my mistake
I’m just a fool
I give my all
You’ll watch me trip
And take my fall
And I keep my hope
Even through all the lies
Because every hello
Is worth all the goodbyes
