Labeled

August 20th, 2009

Beat me down with your stereotypes, but I can never confine myself. You can talk, and write, and pretend all you want, but only I will ever know the real me. You don’t know the truth, not even half of it, or even how I feel. You can’t tell me who I am, what I want, or what I’ve done. Repeat my words, but they change, stories change, and all I fear is drama starts. People change, and so do I, so I can’t hold on to your label or define myself anymore. Who I am has never been what I am, but no one gets the difference. If you can’t tell between them, what gives you the right to claim you know me well enough to stereotype me in the first place. In the mirror, I’ve watched myself change, and through my dreams, I’ve felt it. I can’t hold on anymore, I’ve broken my self-image, and all for some words that mixed up my intentions to smile. Facing my image and my dreams has lost me in all this confusion. I can’t hold on to who I was, and I can only hope that they understand. Seeing myself change has been one of the hardest parts, but holding onto my self-image of what I used to be makes it hard to accept the fact that I changed, and I have no identity. I’ll take my time before I try to confine, and I can only hope it turns out alright in the end. But if you can’t love me without a label, then what kind of love was that from the start.

Answer Me

April 27th, 2009

It started off like a math problem
Me plus you and the answer is unknown
Time went by and the equation was solved
And it’s going to end alone

It wasn’t me who solved it though
I wasn’t strong enough
It’s just the way it has to be
And I’m just not that tough

[Chorus:]
And when you hold my hand
You make it feel alright
The tears form in my eyes
And I don’t want to end tonight

Time keeps moving faster
And I’m spinning in confusion
All this time it was only me
Everything was an illusion

[Chorus:]
And when you hold my hand
You make it feel alright
The tears form in my eyes
And I don’t want to end tonight

I’ve never been so confused
I just don’t know what to do
I’ve never felt so afraid
I don’t want to lose you

[Chorus:]
And when you hold my hand
You make it feel alright
The tears form in my eyes
I just don’t want to end tonight
