Promise me,
Promise me that one day she'll be nothing but just a distant memory
Another " i used to know her", another demon that lasted in my life not longer than a summary

Lie to me,
If you can't promise me then please dare lie to me
Call this an infatuation, a passing feeling soon as my heart finds its perfect fitting

I hate this zone, in this zone she claims to be my friend
I hate this friend, this friend dared place me in a zone
I hate this friend zone, can't she at least be more than just my friend in a zone
In here she says she loves me, in here she shares with me all her ****, in here she's in here with me and it feels lovely
"She's mine, truly she's mine", my heart sings full of conviction
Like she's built only for the sole purpose of my heart's demolition, demolish it she does
" you're the best friend a girl could ever ask for", with these words demolish it she does!!!
Is it because you enjoy the pain,
look at you, fragile and withered
What it is that you expect to gain
won't you please take a breather
Or better yet jus' let go of your breath
'cause whether you live or die, either way for you it's still suicide
Graciously sentence yourself to death,
maybe live better in the afterlife you actually might

And only then when you are gone might they remember to remember,
Remember to remember that you were more than jus' a tree standing by the roadside
Take ye for granted nothing,,,

Why am I laughing,
god knows this ain't funny
Is to hide from crying,
to keep my face from turning gloomy

Why are you crying,
No don't apologise, you've not yet tested true"sorry"
Yes walk away, leave me here emotionally dying,
Walk away towards your lonely,

Why am I laughing,
god knows this ain't funny
Giving up the right to be my Mrs. Right
I swear we could have been happy
Take you back to be the one I never might
oh! wait you just smiled, proud of our ending???

No,
my dream is not to one day stand in the midst of the oval office,
Have tea with the President, ask him if he caught the game last night
Neither is it to drive the latest Mercedes,
Though I know one day I actually might

My dream?,
My dream is to one day kiss her in reality better than I did in my dream

"This is who you are",
Daily I scream these words to the mirror
Without this facade, the world will become witness to your horror
Now go out there, smile and wave
To charity give even your soul
And the monster you truly are will remain your secret even to the grave

"This is who you are",
The mirror never fails to scream back
The words it says I dare not repeat

'Hypothetically', when I first said "hi" to you, I was looking for more than a greeting
When I asked you for your name, I was looking for more than to know you

When I asked for us to be friends, deep down to be more than friends I was wishing
When I introduced you to my friend and you instantly fell for him, hatred within my heart towards love slowly grew

'Hypothetically'
One man band rockstar
Well, that's what you think you are
Your favourite instrument, the guitar
String pulling has always been your heart's desire
Tell me...
How does it feel to be at the puppet'-end
of those strings for a change
Oh, how sweet love exerts its revenge!

The red of your eyes tells me you've been drinking
You fool, no amount of whiskey can drown what you're feeling
To stretch out my hand I'm wishing so as to keep you from sinking,
However at the top of mine voice, to shout "KARMA" feels more appealing

Not that for you I feel no sympathy,
No, trust me truly I do
Jus' that I'm constantly reminded of your once upon a time lack of empathy
The destruction that came to others by your own hand, do you have a clue?
