The tragedy is there's a prison in my mind all the thoughts that lurk there are ones I wish were never mine they etch into my heart the scars I wear so bright
They whisper wicked stories of things that never happened or maybe things that did things that shouldn't create ripples in the current in my life but here I lay in bed stuck awake at night eyes cutting blankly through the nothingness of my cold and dark bedroom
You appear faceless in my every dream following in the footsteps I've left somberly in the snow
I envision the warmth of your smile yet, as I turn my head to see as I turn the page in my heart to love again the words are left unwritten wind sweeping away your fleeting smile the spectral figure of you following in the footsteps I've left somberly in the snow
The spectral figure of you softly fades to gray leaving me to this labyrinth in which I wander alone seeking for eternity the answers to "what went wrong?".
I'm going to be as straightforward as my thoughts. This was poetic at first but now I just need to get it out, and I'm not sure if we're at that point in our relationship yet. I wish we were older. I wish I could come home from work and see you there waiting for me, and set down my bag, come over, and give you a kiss. I wish we could lay down with each other and relax after a hard day and just rant to each other as we watch TV, eating whatever we have in our pantry and holding hands. I wish we could fall asleep with each other, nothing else. Just us, laying in bed, without a worry in the world, except for my arm falling asleep before I do. I wish all of this and so much more, but will we be able to achieve it? Would our relationship have been the same if we would have met 10 years from now? How long will it take? How long will it take? How long will it take? I've never been closer to you but yet I feel so far. I just want to fall asleep with you. We promised each other it would happen someday so I know it's gonna happen. And I won't stop loving you until it does. I just want to fall asleep with you.
