Just a Kid
I'm just a kid,
I don't know life.
All I know is that,
I've got to get it right.

Perhaps its the road,
Maybe a sharp bend.
But there's a reward,
Waiting at the end.

Sometimes the path leads you astray,
But that's OK.
You'll live to another day.
Let the demons go away.

I'll learn as I go,
The journey is enough.
Hopefully I'll have a chance,
To find true love.

To Fade
Max Vale May 13
It's a long road,
And I'm on my own.
I'm scared of the things,
That I don't know.

As the night comes,
I look up to the sky.
I send a prayer,
Hoping my dreams won't die.

I wish my monsters will leave,
And the demons will go away.
I'm just begging,
For the darkness to fade.

Why Did She Leave?
Max Vale May 8
She told me she loved me,
Loved her like a princess from Disney.
Still wondering why she tricked me,
Why the **** did she leave me?

Come Through

I'm lost in my imagination,
All my thoughts are thinking of you.
I've exhausted all my patience,
Why don't you come on through?

Look for the light.

Look what more,
I've gained.

I Love You So Bad
Max Vale Mar 8
Moved out of town,
Went looking for you.
Where are you now?
You were gone too soon.
The past was then,
I made a mistake.
I wanna hold you again,
I wanna see your face.
I searched day and night,
You've been gone for so long.
Gotta keep it tight,
I gotta stay strong.
Nothing but you,
Can heal my heart.
You not being here,
Tears it apart.
The memories we had,
They'll never be gone.
I'll never forget,
Your favorite song.
It plays in my heart,
It echoes in my head.
I'll never give up,
Until I'm dead.
When I find you,
I'll hold you close.
I'll whisper in your ear,
"I'll never let you go".
Cuz -

I love you so bad

Sorry You Lost Me
Max Vale Mar 1
I don't wanna fall asleep,
I don't wanna shut my eyes.
Because every time I close them,
All I think about is lies.
The promises you made,
You said you loved me too.
But now you're gone our memories will fade,
Like all the love I had for you.
But I want to fall into bed,
After a very long day.
I want to feel your touch again,
Saying it'll all be OK.
Now I'm sad you're gone,
You never said goodbye.
And like all my dreams,
They'll surely fade and die.
But now we're done,
I hope you'll finally see.
There was no need to run,
I'm sorry you lost me.

Empty Sadness
Max Vale Feb 21
It hurts to me,
The way you smile.
Your eyes are full of empty sadness,
Because you haven't been loved in a while.

Forget about the wolves,
That chased you today.
Just remember to hold on,
Tomorrow will be OK.

Closed Minds

Closed minds are like,
A broken down car.
With an attitude like that,
You ain't gonna go far.

Left on Read
Max Vale Jan 17
Don't you call me when you're alone,
Don't you dare pick up the phone.
Just to leave me on read,
And wake up in somebody else's bed.
Max Vale Jan 2
This place called paradise,
Is where I want to be.
The limit is the sky,
For you and me.

Nothing can touch us,
The world is at our feet.
Can't you finally see?
It was meant to be?

You know she's gonna break your heart,
You know she's gonna love you and leave you again.
You know she's gonna take you apart,
So why did you fall for it again?
You know he gave you his heart,
You know you're just gonna leave him again.
You know you're going break him apart,
So why did you leave him again?

Afraid of Ghosts

People call me crazy,
For being afraid of ghosts.
But their shadows haunt me lately,
They find their way to my soul.

On Her Way

When she's gone,
She'll be on her way.
And like my dreams,
She'll slowly fade away.

Finish In Last
Max Vale Oct 2019
When I first saw her,
She shone like a star.
A blistering beauty,
That came from afar.
She barely noticed,
How hard I tried.
She never knew,
How much I cried.
I wish I was good enough,
Good enough for her.
But I was never good enough,
Not enough for her.
She never saw me in that way,
Only as a friend.
No matter how hard I try,
Always a dead end.
My friends,
They tried to help.
Little do they know,
How I didn't want their help.
She saw me one time,
Gave me a smile.
I wished I could say,
That she stayed a while.
Maybe I did,
Linger on too long.
Probably because,
I wasn't that strong.
I tried my best,
But it wasn't meant to be.
I should have,
Spent more time on me.
Perhaps in the future,
I would try again.
Maybe in a different life,
We're together amen.
But in reality,
I have to accept what's harsh.
Sometimes in life,
We finish in last.
We don't always win all of our races in life. Sometimes we have to accept we finish in last and that's alright. Maybe in a different life we were meant to be. But not in this one.
Remember, if you really love her,
You'd let her go.

Sometimes in life,
We have to take the hard way.
But when you find love,
You'll be cruising on the highway.

Lady Liberty
Max Vale Sep 2019
Yeah we call it history,
Our ancestor's misery,
True or false a mystery,
Throw in a bit of trickery,
That tasted bitterly,
When we are kept in captivity,
Bringing out the artillery,
Might just be simplicity,
Or maybe just stupidity,
Learn a bit of humility,
Sit on a rock tranquillity,
Inspiring **** creativity,
Everything is a possibility,
Whether we react with negativity,
Or take it literally,
Follow religion divinity,
Maybe we just need some responsibility,
Work together synergy,
To get to a place called victory,
Doing it all for Lady Liberty.
Tweaked :) wrong version published, my bad.

Been waiting for a long time,
Ever since I started to dare,
To dream that I'd be fine.
Waiting for you like a prayer.

Saw it in the distance,
Maybe I'll get it someday.
A light, a hope,  a dream.
So close but so far away

Things change and,
Relationships break and fall apart.
But that doesn't mean,
That I still don't want your heart.

Like a sparkling pearl.

Blame It On Me

When you're dying all alone,
And somebody's taken your glee.

For you to blame it on me.

Didn't mean to call you this time,
Maybe I was throwing a lifeline.
Could we have worked a second time,
Or am I dreaming in my mind?

Coast to Coast

I'l go wherever you go,
Follow you from coast to coast.
Throw everything out of the window,
To be with you when you need me the most.

All You Tell Are Lies
Max Vale Jun 2019
Cruising in some Off-White,
Waiting for the sunrise,
Eating some french fries,
Keeping my dull eyes,
Close to the skies,
This is our prize,
Our dizzying highs,
There is no surprise,
Don't wear a disguise,
When will we realise,
All you tell are lies?

Don't Say I Don't Love You
Max Vale Jun 2019
Calm down,
No need to go crazy.
It’s so easy for me to say,
The screams in your sleep they never fade.

We'll fight all the monsters,
We'll keep running.
Till we get out alive.
Swear to God won't let you die.

So take a deep breath,
And think about what you say.
Don't say I don't love you,
Because you know I do.

Take a Second & Stay
Max Vale May 2019
On the brink,
Of the morning.
If it's too cold,
Let me know.
Even the sky moans,
When it wants to be left alone.

Going so far away,
Like you're not coming back.
Like a rising cloud,
Don't forget you cry.
Like a black thorn rose,
Her beauty shows.

Riding along,
Towards sunset.
Pass the cliff,
Of no return.
Down towards the beach,
She's just out of reach.

Tides coming in,
Moon begins to rise.
White sail at sea,
Following the sun.
When you go everything turns to grey,
Don't leave me take a second and stay.

Maybe It'll Be OK

Maybe I'll feel sorrow,
Maybe it'll be OK.
Maybe when I wake up tomorrow,
I won't feel this way.

On these streets of California.

Get Up & Go Again
Max Vale Apr 2019
There was once a girl,
               Who taught me many things,
To love the earth,
                    And count my blessings.

Once I was broken,
                    Beyond repair.
   I laid on the floor,
                           Full of despair.

       She walked by me,
                 I thought she'd pick me up.
     But she said to me,
                          Get the hell up.

She didn't give me a hand,
              She didn't help me at all.
She just made sure I got back up,
                           That was all.

             So I sat there,
Sobbing and crying.
Like a little baby,
                                  Moaning and whining.

            She said to me,
Why do you cry little one?
                                 There are bigger battles,
To be fought and one.

               Hearing her words,
Made me get back on my feet.
               I said no more,
I disliked defeat.

               She smiled at me at last,
Knowing she'd taught me right.
     To never give up,
                           Without a fight.

      Reaching out her hand,
           Get up she said.
                        I took her hand,
                                              Got up and went again.
The most valuable lesson, I've ever learnt :)

In those perfect pools of blue.
When I look into your eyes,
There's no one as beautiful like you.

Why you gotta be so beautiful?
There's a sparkle in your eye.
Like a diamond in the sky,
You make me feel so alive.

Wishing To Be Free
Max Vale Mar 2019
It's a path we walk,
Whenever we feel alone.
When we don't want to talk,
But just want to go home.

When it rains,
It rains on me.
The wind pains,
It hurts to be me.

I hate the cold,
Yet it loves me.
It always loves to hold,
Tight, surrounding me.

I wish I was better,
That I didn't have to be me.
My life's so bitter,
I wish that I was free.
Its a cold world out there

I'll Come Home
Max Vale Feb 2019
Remember when I told you,
That there will always be hope.
Remember when I told you,
To hold onto the rope.

Remember when I told you,
The road was long.
Remember when I told you,
To please stay strong.

Remember when I told you,
You'd never be alone.
Remember that I've promised,
That'll I'll come home.
Im coming home

A maleficent beast.
