You Again


youagain1

I’m reaching in the dark for the light in you.

When the Sun goes out in your eyes I miss the you I’ve grown to love.
I get nervous when you’re gone.
I hear your voice, but you don’t feel the same.
Where did you go?

I’m reaching in the dark for the light in you.
Look at me when you feel out of touch.
Stay with me.
I will never let you go.

When your thoughts are not your own, know that you are not alone.
I don’t know all the answers, but you, I do know.
Find yourself in this quiet moment with me.
We’ve been here before in this familiar feeling.

You lost yourself in your search to find something you left behind.
I saw a glimmer of someone I used to know in your eyes.
A picture painted in our precious memories.
Never surrender who you are, don’t lose that spark.

Give me your pain until you know the meaning of love.
Rescue these fragile dreams and start again.
With or without directions find your way.
Come back, come back to me.

It’s alright, you’re alright.
It’s you again.

Masks (Pt. 4)

It’s too easy to get lost in what’s missing.
Slipping into deeper shades of grey with each mistake.
This won’t last with the world at our fingertips.

I recognize your life from your language.
You like your hell with a splash of Hennessey.
All the things you’ve done became you.

You want me to think of you differently as though I never knew your name.
We’re different breeds and it’s really starting to show.
Who do you think you are?

If yesterday doesn’t sit right with you move differently.
Get a handle on your truth and there’s nothing to think about.
Cancel all these complications.

When you’re M.I.A. it’s not the same.
All these pretenders imitating real talk.
If you want to be somebody, be yourself.

Understand your energy, live like it’s nobody’s business.
Show me something real, over and over again.
I want to see you.

Masks (Pt. 3)


image

You’re dangerous only when you’re misunderstood.
You want to cross the lines you know all too well.
Reflection shows what’s going on inside.

Hiding behind what you hate to admit.

The things we do to disguise our urges.
Getting caught up in drugs by any other name.
We’re either running to or from ourselves.

See through my demeanor and shades of grey.

You can’t react to what you don’t recognize.
Look deeper before you love the skin I’m in.
What the light tends to miss is what the dark can’t resist.

Freedom can be frightening, that’s why we want more.

All the things you’ve done become you, if you let them.
Introduce me to your truest identity.
All those secrets, take them off.

I want to see you.

Masks (Pt. 2)

Why would anyone want the truth when the lie is more entertaining?
Give the people what they want.
Smile through the storm.
Pain isn’t beautiful, it’s forgettable.

I can’t let it show.
Who I am is not who I’ve been.
But you only see what you want.

From the way I talk, to the way I move.

I wear my wrongs and leave the past where it belongs.
While my shortcomings are missing I’ll tell you everything you want to hear.
Reckless discovery overtake me.
I can’t stay the same.

See the pain, feel the pleasure.
Hiding behind a good time is more than meets the eye.
If I show you who I really am, you can’t tell nobody.
Turn the lights down low and I’ll let you in.

I’ll show you something real.
