Water & Oil


Drown out the tension & not the spark.

Drown out the tension & not the spark.

What spoke out to you laid silent in me.
A voice washed out to sea.
We hear the loud waves of emotion crashing.
Drown out the tension & not the spark,
because whatever rises to the top is what we become.

Outside


Living life on the outside
What you see’s what you get
Nothing more & nothing less
Can’t let you in
Skin deep is where I end

Walk carefully on the surface
Don’t wanna crack, I’m not ready for that
Let me be
Alone, I am certain

I’m tired of coming up blank
Coming undone wasn’t part of the plan
But I want it, wanna be open
So open me up to a world I used to know
Used to know

Oh, outside, I can run
Run as fast as I can
Oh, Outside, you have to deal with what you get
Today is not like yesterday

Living life on the outside
Touch only what you can see
Nothing is what it seems
Can’t let you in

Living life on the outside
Looking out for anything
Nothing is what it seems
Should I let you in?
Skin deep is where I begin
Where I begin, again

Runaway


As long as there’s distance
There’s a chance to get away
A whisper isn’t the same from a thousand feet away
Give up your secrets
I won’t be another one of them
What do you want from me?

Ignore what I’m saying so you can continue feeling the same
Do not disturb a thing cus you like things just the way they are
Can’t touch you; don’t want you to break like porcelain
When you hit the ground running, I have to wonder whether you’re running from me or the pain?
Everybody’s got problems as long as they’ve got breath

Nobody’s got more reasons to stay gone than the heart that’s been wronged
Yet you keep me on the phone with promises of one on one quality time
Face to face dreams, oh what a shame
Wake up with the other side of the bed still empty all the same
Hate to bitch & moan, but I’m not trying to make a bitch moan
I’ve tried to beat it into your heart from the moment our song started playing
Even when it’s all over, you continue dancing around feelings like you’re trying to make it rain

You don’t want to be alone with me
It’s safer on the other side of the line
If you think this can last, you would be wrong
You can’t push my buttons & expect me to stay
My condolences to your consolation prizes
Nobody wants to lie to themselves just to keep you warm

As long as there’s distance
There’s a chance to get away
So I’ll get away to make up for the pain
Give someone good some good love
I won’t be afraid to get close & keep it that way
What could be better?
Ready, set, go!

Notes:
This is an unreleased entry from last year. I reworked it after finding it in my email.

Tragic & brilliant

Tragic & brilliant

Women & Opinions


Is this ALWAYS true?

Is this ALWAYS true?

This is true for a few women that I know. They ask me what I think & as soon as I give them an answer they say,

“Why would you say that!?”

“Well I’m not saying that you’re wrong, but you’re not right either.”

“I should ask _____. (Why am I asking you?)”

Which leads me to think that I really should just echo their sentiments to make them feel better, rather than actually wasting my time & energy putting thought into an honest response.

Sigh…

What do you want me to say?

If you just want to hear what you want, get a parrot or some cheerleaders. Don’t ask me what I think, because you might be surprised by what comes out of my mouth (and you might not like it).

If you want somebody to stroke your ego even when you’re in the wrong, choose carefully & don’t choose me.

“The truth will set you free… But it will probably piss you off first.”

I’m not saying that what I say is the absolute & undisputed “truth”, but it is my truth because that is what I believe in that moment based on what I have come to know. Sometimes I will play “devil’s advocate” & other times I will simply state something & leave it open to your interpretation.

We don’t have to agree on everything (or anything for that matter).

“Why won’t you lie to me? Lie to me, baby. Lie to me baby, one last time…” ~ George Nozuka, Lie To Me
