There were words he seemed to say, and we, as children, listened.
For 15 years, he seemed to preach falsehoods, and we, as children, listened.
He insisted perfection.. promised a name, righteous and deserving of only flawlessness.
A father, your father, who raised up two fools, to himself a wonderful thing.
But I strayed from that path, did I not? And while you still wallow in doubt...
I've witnessed my failure to believe in only success, a lesson to be learned.
I've experienced a humbling, now it's your turn.
I threw up my love for you on the side of the road,
An agonizing blend of
Last nights dinner and this mornings regret,
I hope lightening strikes your car
I could never comprehend direction,
My compass always pointed to you,
Maybe it was broken,
Maybe it was a cardinal mistake,
Maybe I wasnt supposed to turn right when I meant to turn left,
All I know is that
The day you left
Things felt far from right.
And who the hell was I?
I was a soft girl in armor sheets
hoping to be the one you'd seek.
I was gently crafted tea
just the right amount of bitter
- and sweet.
I was all dreams and no reality
my mind in constant flow
my life an artful mess
I was too much dreamy
and not enough girl
I was too much guarded
and not enough frail.
I am enough now.
I am enough for me,
-and now I see
how I fell for all of you,
and you fell
for half of me.
I wanted this and i chose it
I didn't take him when he was mine
I laughed at his face and turned away
I broke him and i was fine
He is feeling much better now
He's the laughter in a big crowd
He learnt from his past mistake
He likes girls that do appreciate
After all this time i simply couldn't forget
The boy who i would always regret
Sometimes i watch him from afar
Seeing how quickly he mended his scar
Now we both have someone in our lives
And even though I have to try
I simply can get him off my mind
Cause now I am the one, broken inside
Her heart is chipped and broken
she gave her all, and more
Words that went unspoken
what "I love you", is for
He's always been real dense
gotta spell out every line
No excuse or good defense
messed up real bad, this time
Repairs and amends
no option now, my friend
You spilled all her emotions
you've come to, the bitter end
That kind of stain, you'll never lose
as bleach and worse it seems
Tangled in your heart for now
forever lost, within your dreams
I can see those dandelions
and how they were dancing,
to the serene bliss of wind
though the dandelions
as to why
the wind did that.
I can hear the wind sighed
and blow a gentle soothe
to those dandelions.
why they would fall
for the ingratiating wind?
how ghost-quiet it tasted?
as I put the question mark
back at the wind,
and hold those flowers
to keep their hearts save.
stopped blowing at last,
leaving every petal on their own
without anymore promises.
all I can hear now is
the beautiful chorus of content
filling up as the wind,
I let these dandelions
on the whispering wind.
with their own anchors.
