Be The Same

It’s just another morning
Waking up after it’s all over
No time for warnings
My mind’s already been made up
I know that I will never be the same
But I’ll bite the bullet

I won’t lie, you’ve got time on your side
Cus it’s been so long
Memories piled up sky high
Make it hard to see anything other than what we used to be

Now I understand
What I want from you
I will never get
What I need to do is deal with it

I left my freedom on the sidelines
One day I’ll give my heart away again
It’s okay not to want me all the same
But don’t leave me hanging & believing
In you there was a reason worth believing
But when it keeps on changing that’s reason to worry
Got feelings so deep, that I could fall for you forever if I chose

Now I understand
What I want from you
I will never get
What I need to do is get over it

I’ve run out of words
I can’t win, but at least I won’t lose my mind without you
Given half a chance you’d find your way back
So tonight I’m cutting the lights & closing the doors
It’s a shot in the dark, but that’s just what I needed

Now I understand
What I want from you
I will never get
What I need to do is deal with it
Because I know that
Without you I’ll be the same

It’s just another morning
I’ll be the same, I’ll be the same

This is a “sequel” or companion piece to “At A Cost”.

The Other End of The Line

I won’t tell nobody
Night after night I watch the stars alone
I’ve loved you from a distance
While listening to your voice on the other end of the line
Took my time taking in everything you’ve said
Cus I don’t know when I’ll see you again
And these conversations are too far & few
to fill me all the way so that I can make it through the days
And I don’t know what to say

I must apologize
You’ve got me making promises that I can’t keep
Every embrace is a dream & as soon as you leave, I’m awake
I can’t promise you forever
But I promise that I’m right here, right now & I’m not going anywhere without you
I know that I’m probably holding on to something that I can’t keep
And I don’t know what to say

I’ll show you that I’ve missed you, just in case you can’t see it
I’m stronger than depression & I’m braver than loneliness
And I don’t know what I’ve gotta say
My love belongs to you
Take your time, I’ve had plenty

What Are You Waiting For?

I’m waiting for my life to begin. I’m waiting for my life to begin with you. I once wrote that “You are the big bang at the end of my days”, and I meant it. We have something special; it has been tried & tested. Maybe I’m wrong, but maybe I’m right. Right about you, right about us & right to feel the way that I do. I know that we will always have something standing in our way, but that should not stop us. You once asked me to promise that I’d never leave you alone, and I didn’t really know how to respond to that. I can’t promise you that, but I can promise you that I am here now, just like I have always tried to be.

We’ve been through this before, but with blinds on. I get it, we only see what we want to see & we hear what we want to hear. If I’m wrong just let me know, I can deal with that. I’d rather know that I was wrong than to not know where I stand with everything. So go ahead and break my heart if you have to, you wouldn’t be the first & you probably won’t be the last. I’m sorry, but I’d rather lose sleep over you because I know how you feel, instead of losing time over a game of infatuation.

I’m not asking you to drop everything for me right now. I just need to know what am I waiting for, give me something to go on. I’m drawing on words & painting pictures, just so you can see where I’m coming from. I’ve tried to show you how I feel, maybe I need to try a different tactic & be direct.
