I look but I don't see
My family tries to get through
While my friends try to talk to me
My mind is lost
To a sea of despair
My mind
It's what all these mistakes have cost
I can't hear what they're saying
My mind is lost
I'm in a place of thought
Where no one can reach me
I'm hidden away
While everyone thinks I'm here

I've got a wild heart that won't commit
I carry it on my sleeve
Hoping I'll find the perfect fit
That's not true
I don't know what I want
I change when pain is a possibility
Choosing a different side of me to flaunt
It's a self inflicted torture
A cycle that's hard to end
Meeting someone new
Knowing that soon you'll let them see a change
To avoid pain
And start again

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Cold air on a summers night
Sweeps the room
To my delight
I lie here awake
Waiting on my child
Hoping that he is safe
Wishing his father was a better man
Wishing he would have stayed

In the beginning you meant nothing
Then so suddenly
You were everything
You were the air I breathed
The water that gives me life
Then just as suddenly
I was nothing
And you were still everything

I could tell tales
Of all that I have felt
Of the dreams tarnished
Of all the pain I've been dealt
I could tell them in great detail
Hoping that in telling them
This agony I feel would end
Only it does not
Every time I tell them
It is one more battle fought
My mind tells me to let go
While my heart forbids it
It would be easy to forget if my mind was on its own
If these feelings were ones my heart had never known
In the end these emotions keep the memories alive
As my mind begs for me to let go
And my heart says a steady no

Dreams of broken glass
I've had
Of children
Who to hell cannot pass
Of loves that never last
Here I am alive and well
Yet still in living hell
Where nothing stays true
I lie here
Always wishing I was with you
