Play the piano
As you let those hands
slide from one key to another
Let the raging emotions
Echo in the room
Until that final note subsides

--

Smile
Even though you're drowning
I'll save you
Reach out your hand
I'll be your lifeline
I'll be there
Dont worry
I wont let you go
Promise

---

Maybe if you tried
To love him
The way she did
Maybe he wouldn't
Be looking for someone
Better than you

---

Look into his eyes
You can see the beauty
Of the unknown
The longing he has
For something
He can never have
You will see--
Yourself

---

It's 1am
I'm still thinking about
What could have been
What I could have held
and What i could have done
For you to stay
Forever

---

Do not give me
flowers and chocolates
They cant suppress my desire
to hold you tight
and tell you
"you're mine"
while we lay under the stars

---

It's a special day
For you and I
As you get ready
For the ringing bells
Of the church
And I,
Get ready for my
First day at work

---

When I saw your name
I no longer felt the pain
I couldn't remember the happiness
I won't go back to the past
And I was sure
I was over you

---

People are like puppets
We can constantly deny it
But there are strings
Attached to our souls
Manipulating us to do what must be done


---

If I were given a chance
To turn back time
I won't change my past
Instead, I'll visit myself
Drop a note with the lottery's
Winning numbers

---

We're not friends
We're more than that
You're just too arrogant
To acknowledge that fact
Because of that,
You lost me in the sea
Of sorrow


---

My vision started to blur
When you told me
You wanted to leave
I never really enjoyed
Smoking and drinking
But it's all I could
Think about

---

Maybe you're right
We've grown too different
To understand each other
We've drifted apart
From the neutral ground
We used to call home

---

If you saw me in a different light
Would you take the risk
Of falling in love with me
Even though it probably
won't end right
Would you?

---

You're going to slip
Through my fingers
Like you always do
But today's different
I'm going to let you go
Without hesitation or regret
