i’ve got your picture in a frame we share memories and a middle name and i remember how you’d say one little word and it would cut away everything are you looking down at us now your family, that empty house on tanya lynn drive at the table you would sit or you basement desk with a lamp lit filling the margins of your bible notes of how his holy fire would burn away

I wrote your name on the back of my mind, so you’d stay around. But when this tree falls, I won’t be outside. I cant stand the sound. This mess i’ve made is too much to bear sometimes. And the trust i break... well, it leaves me scared when I’m fine. I’ll just keep my head up like you told me to. There’s no such thing as getting old. Not yet, no. Young love, the spirit inside of me... keep my garden green. I call you mad from the shadows, too dark to see the chance i have to let go, to be set free Across my back pile my days, and it shows. As they stack, I feel the pain, but you don’t. You said, “Keep your head up like I told you to. There’s no such thing as getting old. Not yet, no. Young love, the spirit inside of you... keep your garden green.” Maybe abstract, but what’s a setback? Let it pour all over you. We hold the reigns. It’s true, we do.

i can’t quite form the words to say what’s on my mind things were so clear yesterday when my thoughts were a different kind and its hard to forgive my self when i can’t follow through it feels like i’m all tied up and i can barely move i just want to feel something different from this pain could you cut me down, i’m tangled up in my brain tell me something good, sing me some cheerful melody wake me up, shake me up, make my heart beat i know myself a little better than anybody else but some times when i start to slide i need a little help so could you remind me, please how to get back to that place where the sun is shining and there's a smile on my face you know i’ll be there for you when times get tough i’ll help you get back on your feet right now i really need a pick-me-up something to make my heart beat and now i’m feeling something different from that pain you cut me down, out of the tangles in my brain told me something good, sang me that cheerful melody woke me up, shook me up, made my heart beat

well sometimes you cross my mind i can’t get you out of my head i can’t think straight anymore these hollow fantasies echoes of some deep desire have all washed up on my shore and it’s hopeless to fight it, ive tried too easy to keep this dream alive i’m ready to run away from you when my heart’s been emptied out and i have wasted it all i won’t have you to blame i got caught up again in lovesick fairytales but real life isn’t the same and it’s fruitless to live this way i remember better days i’m ready to turn and run away from you i saw this coming, i’ve been here before i’ve made the same mistake twice but wouldn’t it be nice if my dream came true with you there i go again playing games i’ll never win i’ve really gotta run away from you

too weak blue days can’t speak a thick haze then a shout a reaction to the doubt the subtraction to alleviate the pain we’ll become abbreviations quick spin tough grit pulled in hard hit a shout a reaction to the doubt the infraction we’ll annihilate the rain and become abbreviations taking the cheap shot too small a game swim to the deep end, forget our names then a shout a reaction to the doubt the subtraction to alleviate the pain to become abbreviations a shout a reaction to the doubt the infraction we’ll annihilate the rain and become abbreviations

good morning, it’s cold outside, how did you sleep late for the bus, i see your breath, wait up for me i’ve been trying to lose you, one kiss away too tired to fool you, i bend and break i bend and break my homework is left undone, no dog to blame distractions... I wish you were one to take my name illusions, delusions my freedom is coming soon seduction, confusion i bend and i break for you
