How can i stop? To be too obessed, This urging flames, That keeps on coming back, Against my throat, Ended up nothing much to say, When love starts at bravery, But i'm cowardly afraid, And i'm might die, Not saying what i want to say, But i hope you'd know...
i shoulda woulda coulda stayed and fought your screams grew too angry your temper grew too hot you brandished cruel mistakes made like serrated knives i fled and hid knees buckling at this domestic strife i swore i'd grow the strength to come back inside but never did my backbone grow my resolve just up and died i wish i was more powerful and clung to you so tight but i just got into my truck and drove away that night
A simple rhyme scheme to express those moments when you fail to push through the pain and strife and tell someone what they mean to you, to say "I'm sorry", and to let them take out their frustrations with you.
Am I a coward? Or am I strong? The pain that has towered Dealt with for so long
Yet, I'm still here Is it because fear?
I've wanted to die I can't help but wonder why Why haven't I?
Do I persevere? Life, do I hold dear?
Or am I afraid? Of being laid Down in a tomb? Is it worse than my room?
So am I a coward? Am I so weak? Or am I strong In the face of a life soured? I can't help but think About my song
The song of my life Could it sing strength? Somehow my knife Shining at length Doesn't seem to believe I'll be remembered that way So I would conceive Strength isn't what people would say When describing me So cowardly then Is what I must be For not bringing my end
And I still don't know If I'll ever go Will I ever confide In my suicide?
Is suicide cowardly, or an act of strength? Is living on? Could both be either? Which am I? I can't bring myself to believe the better. So then, am I a coward for living, or would I be a coward for dying?
Why couldn't you just love me back Instead you left me to drown I am alone in this when i know I'm not Why couldn't you just say you love me.
That's all I needed hear. I knew there was no* Promise of forever even though I hoped. All I needed was for you to just say you love me instead you left me to drown
You ran-Coward, like a child running from a clown. You let me see the heavens and now I'm free-falling down, down, deeper than the ground. Why couldn't you just love me back why did you leave me to drown I am alone in this when I know that I'm not.
