Waiting For The Rain

September 13th, 2009

You say I don’t know you
But I’m sure I know you better
You’re staying in alone
Just to be under the weather
Pushing me away
But I know just who you are
You could take a step past me
But you’re taking this too far

[Chorus:]
Waiting for the rain
Cause you know it’s on its way
Just lock away the pain
There could be a better day
And all you want to do
Is sit around and cry
Stop waiting for the rain
If you want to stay dry

I know that something’s wrong
It shines clearly in your eyes
But your smile never fades
Even when it’s all a lie
Looking at you
Fills my heart in pain
Because I lost you
When you stepped into the rain

[Chorus:]
Waiting for the rain
Cause you know it’s on its way
Just lock away the pain
There could be a better day
And all you want to do
Is sit around and cry
Stop waiting for the rain
If you want to stay dry

Hear the thunder
Feel the lightning
Deep inside
This storms so frightening
And I acknowledge you’re brave
Acknowledge that you’re strong
But deep inside
This solution is so wrong

[Chorus:]
Waiting for the rain
Cause you know it’s on its way
Just lock away the pain
There could be a better day
And all you want to do
Is sit around and cry
Stop waiting for the rain
If you want to stay dry

Carry Me

August 13th, 2009

It all started out
As a simple request
Nothing intended
No interest
But it all got too deep
Thoughts began flowing
Carried away
I’m not sure where I’m going

[Chorus:]
I don’t know what to do
I’m so lost in my head
And I try to go forward
But backwards instead
And the clock keeps on ticking
Time keeps on moving
And I am so small
And I am still losing

My mind and my thoughts
They just won’t tag along
And for once I’m not confused
But for once it’s not wrong
And it’s only their opinions
But mine isn’t me
Then when I turn around
I don’t like what I see

[Chorus:]
I don’t know what to do
I’m so lost in my head
And I try to go forward
But backwards instead
And the clock keeps on ticking
Time keeps on moving
And I am so small
And I am still losing

And here I am
Just looking in the mirror
And who I thought I was
Is no longer here
It’s just me in the world
Not sure what to say
Because speaking my thoughts
I get carried away

[Chorus:]
I don’t know what to do
I’m so lost in my head
And I try to go forward
But backwards instead
And the clock keeps on ticking
Time keeps on moving
And I am so small
And I am still losing

Please just pull me back
To who I once knew
I can’t keep on going
Just knowing it’s you
You didn’t say much
Or nothing at all
But here I am
Will you catch me when I fall
