It is too hard,
why should I try?
to go that extra mile,
when the opportunity will fly on by.
There is too big of a cost,
why should I leap?
what if we end up lost?
and the devil has my soul to keep.
Tell yourself these words everyday,
and life passes you by,
and you sit and play.
Let these words sit in your head,
as you sit alone,
lying in your bed.
But there are others who will not be like you,
others who are like lions,
the kings to break out of this zoo.
There are others who are not like you,
they say I can when they should not,
and do not give it a second thought.
Those are the men who will stand atop a mountain,
looking down upon you,
and pissing in your drinking fountain.
Those are the men who will succeed because they believed,
while you sat and gave every excuse you could bleed.
It were Christmas
Because I love the frenzy
And excuses it brings.
It's a beautiful
Excuse to not do
The rubbish things
In life that we spend
Our lives doing.
The fairy lights
Entwined in the trees
With the buzz
I wish it were
It brings the beautiful
Excuse to love
Just as we love
The icy daisies
Of spring I love
The warm branches
Of bare Christmas Trees
I wish it were Christmas
Because I want to
Hang the rosewood
And see the glitter of sequin
Bunting strung happily
About the bedrooms.
I love the beautiful
In the gifts bought
And how love is sieved
Through in the snow.
I’m done with the disappointment
With the heartache and tears
I’m done with the promises
Always postponed, never fulfilled
I'm finished with the "I love you"s
With the confusion between truths and sweet nothings
I’m spent with the let downs
With the excuses and "I’m sorry”s
I say I am finished with the romance
With the kisses and heartbreaks
Yet my every wish it to have such
To be wrapped in a lovers arms; to be loved
I say I am done with the disappointment
With the heartache and the tears
But I have yet to give it up
Nor do I honestly want to.
" i'm just tired,"
" its been a long day,"
" i'm stressed,"
they are all excuses I use every single day
people will look past my excuses,
then, what will I say?
i'm not tired, i'm depressed
it hasn't been a long day, its been an endless one
i'm not sick, i'm just dying inside
when will the excuses end?
when can I stop lying?
I've already stopped fighting
you can make excuses for almost everything
but not when your dead
I picked up smoking when I was 16 because I could.
I threw excuses at myself like daggers around ladies in circus sideshow acts.
“I enjoy so few things in life, I might as well let myself have a damn cigarette.”
I told myself they were excuses, at least.
I've got piles of excuses
Just waiting in line
Of my favorite to use
I've perfected with time
From I had no idea
To the suns in my eyes
It's my allergies
That make it look like I cry
Or that dog of yours
Made all this mess
And I'd love to go out
If I wasn't already undressed
I used to do that
Before I threw out my back
I'd find your jokes funny
If I hadn't run out of laughs
I'd visit more often
If I had more time
These excuses are real
I swear I'm not lying
Would have done something
If that I had seen
Seems the older I get
The more my eyesight fails me
These are just a few of the excuses
Over the years I have saved
Never know when I'll need them
For a good excuse to be made
I guess executives like people major in excuses.
Everytime something drastic happens.
We know the comment or generalization is coming.
We know when gas prices arises.
That an excuse is coming our way.
Do they think we were born yesterday.
If a forest fire happens.
If rain never comes.
We know prices of fruit will be like a track runner.
Some just given.
We constantly aware of that late employee.
Where you're just waiting to hear that one news.
Traffic was bad.
Or something else given to cover up being late.
A honest days work for your boss.
Just to hear them say get out.
Because we filing bankruptcy's today.
We all can't say we hadn't used one.
Because we are only human.
Late for a date.
You better have a good reason.
And, we complain about the lateness of the seasons
Something we never get use too.
