It’s You & Me (For The Last Time)


My heart tells me that you’re the only one.
That’s why I have to leave you alone.
You know what I mean if you’ve slept alone while thinking of someone.
How could you make me miss you like an addict craves a high?
I just had to tell you that this is our final goodbye.

To The Point


I’ve got nowhere for you to stay, but I can tell you where you can go.
You’ve got me speechless as I stop and wonder “what was I thinking?”.
I don’t know where to start, somebody tell me what I was tripping on before I fall too far.
Everything was all for nothing, now I know.
It just isn’t the same when I try to let my love out while my heart’s under arrest.
I’m past the point of turning back, I’ll let karma look out for me.

Last Night


Last night I realized that my world didn’t revolve around you.
Sure we were out of control, but I decided to stop puffing and pass on going another round with you.
I paid for your ways after we made plans and you wasted time that can’t be spent again.
I’m not all about you when I’ve got more going on with my eyes closed.
Now you’re one of the many instead of the one.
You can’t deny that you denied me of the thing I needed the most.
You.

No more talking behind closed doors from the opposite sides.
I ignored so many red alerts and warnings for you.
I stood my ground and took you down a few pegs for your own good.
You’re not the person I met all those years ago.
I know all about you now and nothing you say can change that.
To be honest you caused the fire in my bones and now I’m going to light the world up.
With or without you, I’m good.
Can you say the same, I don’t think so.

I kept your secrets to keep you close.
Looked the other way so I could keep looking you in the eye.
I lost myself in you, but not completely, I know that now that I’ve turned away.
Somewhere along the way I got tired of covering for you.
I was so focused on your needs that I forgot to pay attention to my own.
Always thought that you knew what you were doing.
But you had my head spinning when you put your wayward world in it.
Now worlds apart I’m heading for new avenues.

Done waiting & debating, talking myself into you.
I just wanted to be yours, not his or hers or theirs.
All of these regrets are nothing new, but the love I’m getting is.
Last night I had a good time and I did it all without you.
If I have my way, every day and night will be like last night.
Never thought that things would end up like this, but now I can’t wait to do this again.

Never in your wildest dreams could I have been the person that I got to be while I was out on the road with some good company.
My first time fears fell away as I got close to someone new.
They could hear the smile on my face as I got away from what I knew and fell into love anew.
My heart is still racing.
In the quiet afterthought of everything that we said and did, I realized that I did this for me.
This is what I was chasing after.
I’m more real than I’ve ever been.
Now that I’ve turned around and danced to this new song, I’m free.
I’m free.

Feel Something


Tell me what you want, just use your words.
Clever words and phrases lie buried beneath your silence, so let’s waste them on each other.
Show what’s hidden behind your defense.
Take what you want to take from the lines we make.
Take me with you.
Take me with you before I start to miss you.
Breaths apart with our beating hearts a sync is the only way I can live.

Take what you want of me, but don’t take me for a fool.
Sometimes I wish you would leave me.
Its so easy to give into the quitter in you and the bitter in me.
Shut your beautiful mouth around mine because I’m trying to think about what I say instead of saying what I think.
How did we get here?
Will you come with me to the future, there’s room for two?

There’s no question about it.
There was passion, there was laughter and then there was the morning after.
If you could care more would you dare to try?
You can find your way into me so easily, its like I was made for you.
Will you hide in me and stay for a while?
I hold you up above everyone else because I see what I want and its you.
There’s nothing left.

Its not always what we want, but how we want.
You say, be a man, look it up and think it over.
I’d take a beating for you, but not from you.
The only thing I’m guilty of, is building my dreams around you and yours and then wasting them on another.
My potential outweighs your expectations and it’s not healthy anymore.
I’m not sick of you yet, but the heart wears thin with time, I guess we weren’t impervious.
After all that’s said and done its our capacity for each other that has torn at the seams, with our hearts beating in delayed syncopation.
Is this the color of our love?

This is the love, the hurt, and the end of us as we knew it.
I don’t want to take that chance, so I cross my heart and hope to die.
When you love me I feel like someone else.
You’re still the best, more or less.
Don’t say another word, I don’t want to know otherwise.
It hurts to say it.
Here’s to a sorry you and a sorry me when the smoke clears.
There’s nothing left, roll the credits.
