I’m sleeping just fine
while I’m probably on your mind
still keeping you up.
And you’re mad at yourself
for giving a damn
now that I’m gone.
And you’re mad at yourself
for not giving enough of a damn
back when I would have given you
my whole world
if that’s what you wanted.
But now I don’t care about what you want
You can tell it all to the ghost of mine
that still haunts when you can’t sleep.
I’m not asking you to be my shinning knight
but you should treat me better and start acting right.
I don’t need saving, in fact I do just fine on my own
So if you want me in your life then you need to grow up.
I could be good for you if you let me
but you’re too scared I’ll end up being your weakness.
Maybe one day I’ll finally get good at getting over you
But until then I’ll have another drink while I listen to another song that reminds me of you
I’ll drive by your house again and read through old phone conversations
Oh cause one day you wont cross my mind
But until then I’m still at this bar, stuck on you
I imagine hearing your name and not giving it a second thought
There will be no floods of memories that have to be fought
No ache in my heart nor tears in my eyes
You’ll be gone and I’ll have moved on
But until then I’m still at this bar, stuck on you.
There is a hint of you in every poem of mine
the faintest honey peach wine still on my tongue from each line.
It was never my intent to put you there, you show up uninvited.
Neither of us had planned to stick around but Winter has gone
And come again and I’m still here sipping on you tucked into desire’s cozy fire.
When I was young I dreamed of reaching the moon
and I dreamed of saving the world.
I dreamed of becoming the best me I could be
but chasing dreams is harder than it seems
because disappointment and doubt appear to be the only things in route.
But I’m strong and I’ll survive
and only Love can keep the heart alive.
I’m driving down the road that leads to your house
But I turn left because someone else
Now lays on my side of the bed.
I wish you both the best
but I can’t help myself from
Wishing I could see your face again
And Wishing we could head back to your place
And wishing you found home in my arms.
I know heartbreak touches near the same volume as stars
but the ruin he left me in
makes raging tornados seem like
just a breeze in the wind.
Maybe you were meant for a woman like Mother Nature.
I hope it works out for you
And that she’s the love of your life.
But if there’s a chance for me
Just know I’m waiting on your call.
If love falls through
I’ll be there to catch you.
I miss you all the time
Can never get you off my mind
I’d come back to you in a heartbeat
If you ever opened your arms again.
And he’s calling my phone again
but I can’t tell him that I wish
He was you instead.
He holds me tight
and I wonder if he’ll love me past tonight.
I fill my head with nonsense
Wishing we could be
More than just a you and a me.
I’ll let you keep the upper hand
if it makes you feel secure enough
to keep me around.
I know you’re scared to be vulnerable
but baby, I’ll hold you gently.
Just when I start to pull you close
Is when it starts to end.
It feels like irony
or heaven just in need of a laugh.
I need a man who will open his arms to me
and finally put this dating misery to an end.
