maybe I didn't love you after all, maybe I just wanted to play the role, I don't think I loved the feeling either, but what is it that I loved, I keep wondering what it is that I've given so much of me, only to be left empty, I'm not sure exactly, if it is for ****, if it is for desire, or if it for amusement, I'm not sure really.
I never tried to be what I thought that I should be Never did achieve anything I could achieve I never tried to see what it was you saw in me Nor did I believe everything I should believe
I never had the chance to ask "Would you like to dance?" To feel your lips in an eclipse or even steal a glance I never said goodbye to you, we never said hello I never tried to live a life and now I have to go
I do not come to you with the usual platitudes Things you have heard numerous times before Though perhaps my arrogance stretches far and these words have reached your ears many a time. How am I to know.
I would ask you, to save me. There is no need to take any action, just keep shining. You taught me, or rather, finalised the lesson - when my fathers should have - that you can be as fantastical as you want to be. You do not grow old, your body does.
Thank you for reminding me that I'm still growing and that there is Hope for me.
But if your light were to go - I suppose I would still live - but life would be so much darker.
Thank you for smiling when you can - I of all people know there are rainy days.
I'll play the tinker toy, You play your game. Use me, abuse me. For boredom, I'll take blame. Emotional backboard My role and my place. I'll keep you happy Til you forget my face. My role as your keeper, One of tarnished brass, Is full of rewards Seldom worth all the gas. And please hear me beg you, A toy of my own, To fill in the space, That you just leave unsewn.
