The Thief

Some say I could have stopped this crime
but I swear it happened too fast
as I watched her escaping
escaping her past
just in time
just
in time

And some say she’s trespassed these walls before
but I swear she’s just looking for light
as I watched her steal this heart
steal this heart tonight
just once for
just
once more

Keeping a Night Sky Alive

Shooting stars keep a night sky alive
And calm dark waters are rippled by a feeding fish
With our back against the dewy grass, you whisper,
“They don’t last, so make a wish.”

They burn so bright, and then drop out of sight
I would spend a lifetime to take it all in
Maybe our fire’s done burning
And like those stars, we’ve fallen

Our past sings through swaying trees
And words break silence like a distant wind chime
Maybe this is only the beginning
And we will burn brighter in time

So, tonight I share my wish
To the girl with the broken smile
I’ll throw it all in the water
And ask her to stay a while

Pretend it never happened

Let me give you a knife
and my arm
and you can cut it for me
so you see the anger in my eyes.
You say mean things to me
but it doesn’t stop there
No, your words go deep inside
and stay with me forever.
Im taking this hard
but why shouldnt I?
I look at you with disgust
as I see you walk by.
The silence it kills me
but it’ll always be the same
But Id take silence
then have to replay those memories in my head
What did I do to deserve this?
Im sick of making excuses for you
So lets just leave,
Pretend it never happened.
Somebody pinch me
please tell me Im dreaming
Let me wake in the morning
and it’ll not be my reality.

Everything good goes away in the end

How can you know so much about me
and not bat an eye, but want to know more?
You know when Im mad and say all the right things
We fit so well together, but I dont wanna do this.
You dont wanna know how I feel
It would eat you up inside, tearing your soul from your body
Devouring it whole.
You know so much, but theres still so much more
Stick around, and maybe you will learn something
You’re gonna get tired of me soon
everyone always does.
Its such a disappointment that everything good
goes away in the end
