I'm like your Swear Jar. Whenever you mess up, And let naughty words slip, You toss a nickel in. And everytime you lie Everytime you cry over them Yet another nickel will go in.
I'm your Charity case. Filled with blind hopes and dreams. Living on faith that things will get better. Yet always knowing, No amount of nickels and tears Could clear the air Of the words you've said.
I'm like your punching bag. Catching all of your blows, Easing your pain Trying to bring you To tranquility again.
I'm your pillow. Soaking up your tears The only one Who's heard all of your fears. Day after day I bear your weight. Because. ..
YOU ARE MY CAGE. Making sure I can NEVER ESCAPE. TRAPPING me with your soft embraces. And PROMISES of what we'll do, With ALL THE NICKELS THAT WE'LL SAVE. I'M YOUR MISTAKE JAR. FILLED TO THE BRIM WITH ALL YOUR LIES. AND HOLDING ALL OUR FALSE HOPES AND DREAMS.
I'M YOUR SWEAR JAR. only wanted when your HURTING.
