When I drink wild air,
I think of you
Swerving cars and yellow lights,
I think of you
The rings of smoke coming from the vape,
I think of you
Big fluffy white dogs and black jeeps,
I think of you
Febreeze and packed bowls,
I think of you
Losing at pool and being alone,
I think of you
Hating this place and wanting to escape,
I think of you
Wanting to feel numb,
I think of you
When I think of me,
I think of you.

I know its silly,
to say I'll see you in my dreams
but it's the truth;
I haven't held you in forever,
but my dreams bring me closer.

Nights spent thinking about you
all the wonderful things you make me feel...
Love. Safe. Joy. Hope. Wanted.
I love you.

Soon my love,
we'll share the space between our arms
singing those songs we've shared for so long.

you'll say you can't sing
but when you do I get lost
lost from my problems,
lost from my pain,
lost from my worries.
and then I get lost in you.

So bring on the night
that brings me to you.

I'm here again...
Lost at the thought of us together at 4 AM.
Stop me now...
Because I still keep all of our memories.

I've let you go...
A million times,
Yet I still manage to lose control.
Because everytime anyone mentions your name....
It all comes back.
Come back...
totally off topic but please listen to The 1975's new album IT'S REALLY GOOD

Love isn't something you trade, it's something you give.
don't get upset when someone doesn't love you back, you're just giving it to the wrong person.
Mr Quiet Nov 21
You love to fall for people that you know you barely even know,
Yet you get upset when you don't get all the cuddles because your brain is slow,
Ain't that funny though?
You fall only to feed your ego.

Miscommunication which lead you to feel feelings for someone you know isn't into your charm,
Now you're confused when she told you she don't want your affections 'cause she knows she don't want any harm.
You romanticize the feeling of your loneliness which creates this void for the hopeless romantic,
Which was all just you and your narcissistic conscience and now you've just redirected your own tactic.

Exaggerate your friend's intentions to convince yourself that they only want your love,
You only cared for them when they cared about you because them caring for themselves, for you, isn't enough.
Don't be surprised now that you're on your own,
You knew you were a snitch,
Because you crave for anyone's attention and affection 'cause you're too hollow to have yourself fixed.
i have no idea wut im writing about... Well i do but im not entirely sure.

Reminiscing all the times,
You slept on my shoulder and tried to be my side.
Hit me with nostalgic feels,
Because I see only memories when you're coming near.
I never thought this would happen,
I might try to sleep but it's still you stuck in my mind.
Can't help myself.

I don't want to wish to travel to back in time so we can be just friends,
I just hope that we can have better days that we can spend,
But it confuses me because I still want to hate you for what we did,
What I did also makes me want to hate me for what I've been.
And I can't put my emotions aside,
It's who I am,
A kinda funny guy with a poker face but exploding with tears within,
And if I could say one word that describes what I think about you,
I'd just like to say "Feels."

'Cause it feels like I'm alone,
'Cause it feels like you were my home,
'Cause it feels like you took me away,
Now I can't seem to escape,
You really made me feel this way.

Don't think that I'll be acting reckless,
I'm just letting out this mess so I can be myself for once without you making me feel all depressed,
And all hopeless,
I can't help but change my mind every time I think about you 'cause it changes all the time.
Oh NO I hate you,
Oh NOW I love you,
Oh just please keep your distance so I can put everything behind.
Because once you've left,
I felt my heart beat for myself for the first time in awhile.

And I don't want to confirm that I despise you,
Because I know there's a part of me that loves you,
But I hope you don't mind that I bury it away since all that feeling does is make me go insane.
And I really hope you feel the same way,
'Cause I'm losing myself.
And I can't think anymore.
I don't want to feel anymore.
gather your lilies and I'll hang them
from my exposed ribs;
I've always been good at ruining
the beautiful that blooms
because of you.

it's never too late to run.
it's better too scrape the husk
of connection than dream up
a wreckage forever sinking.

dried flowers makes the smell of rot
remind me of the morning sun
bringing out the red in your hair.

it's never too late to run.
it's better to taste the blood
than forget that it's there at all.

f#@€ that.

it's never too late to plunge
headfirst into the acceptance
of the failures of the head
when heart was what we needed.

gather your lilies and we'll hang them
in the windows in our memories
to remind us of the bigger picture
when rain clouds roll in.

it's never too late to love
what we hated once.

I've never felt homesick
even thousands of miles away

you're my home

Don't get coffee.

Don't kiss her.

Don't fall in love.

Don't think about her every moment.

Don't let those blue eyes entrance your soul like they have time and time again.

Don't let those lips poison your heart with the stinging venom of her snake-like heartstrings.

Don't do it again expecting something to change for the better with a happily ever after.

Don't convince yourself that you're done falling.

Don't, because you know you're doing it again.

Don't think for a second it's over.

Don't forget it's just starting again.

Fool yourself.

Fall in love.

Kiss her.

Get coffee.

This time.

The "last time".

Do it.
For the confused and in love. But hey, what's the difference?

I'm questioning everything and I got something to say,
Being heartbroken, secluded has made me completely insane,
But overall I felt dumb and then it all suddenly hit my brain,
Why did I let me break me when I know in the beginning you won't stay?

Hurting myself with doubt, always making me down, you didn't tear me down, I did it all by myself.
"But maybe I could've done something"
Maybe I should shut up and just be on my way,
You're done with me,
And I'm moving on,
End of the debate,
Yet I'm not done with this song.

I'm questioning everything that exists in my brain so it can exit and I can be me again.
Can I be me again from the time I was ten and so careless without me breaking hearts and losing friends?
Can you forgive me after all those bad events and hopefully we can talk about it using past tense?
But nevermind, I guess we are those past tenses.

Thinking about all the times we had fun and had a good laugh and had a good run,
Reminiscing times that ended our hearts,
From beating for one other,
'Cause now we're apart.

And now I am done,
Breaking myself 'cause now you're having fun with all your friends,
It's time for me to stop,
It's time for me to stop.

On and on again.
why do i keep thinking she'll come back, it gotta stop tbh
