“It’s not you,” You tell me.
But I can’t make you see that security is always fleeting. But I will not be. And I just want that to be enough.

I just want to be enough.

I think I’ve calmed your mind on this subject, now. I hope I have.
You’re so afraid of your security
That you accidentally take mine from me.

I felt secure in you until you changed your mind, repeatedly.

If you aren’t ready, please tell me.

Because I’m afraid to wait forever for you only to find that I’ll never be enough for you.

You’re worth the wait and everyone gets cold feet sometimes. I understand your mind a little better now.
Maybe if you were ******* me it’d be enough for you to want to marry me, and release your notion of security.

Maybe that’s what it takes. Maybe that’s why she was different.

I know this isn’t true, now, but. It was a hard night that night and I figure it deserves to be shared anyway.

Stirring the city streets is always relaxing.
Whether I'm on foot, or in a car, I move swift and watch.
I watch the spiders pull their strings and tighten and intertwine their intricate webs
Less so focused on any prey,
And more focused on not letting their webs plummet into a tangled mess below.
I walk and watch.
I drive and watch.
The street names become background noise
As I walk with scissors
Looking for the right spiders
To cut free.
I see your networks and I know how it works

Liking all the latest pics
From the keyboard of my device
Posting all the time
Push a button to make a dime
Gathering members from afar
I'm a star

Why did he have to reinvent the book
By typing right here, everything you need
He plugged us in, created social network for greed
The info guru of the whole **** world
That's why he had to reinvent the book

We feel your caution behind the firewall
Finding an app to help us all
It's paradise when your video goes viral
Accepting new friends you've never met
Want to make a bet?

Why did he have to reinvent the book
By typing right here, everything you need
He plugged us in, created social network for greed
The info guru of the whole **** world
That's why he had to reinvent the book

Making it feel more like a celebration
Spreading the likes and dislikes
To a whole new generation
More like New World Order of sanitisation

That's why he had to
That's why he had to
That's why he had to, reinvent the book.

This is my brain on drugs
This is my brain in love

The high is so good
To feel understood
To feel so secure by your touch

When I wake up and thank Jesus for another day
I feel guilty, as I wrestle
to keep thoughts of you at bay.

Tho I always win
You're my whiskey, my gin

And I reach for you after I pray.
I was just thinking about the science behind falling in love and hope it affects us on a chemical level.
Time moves so ******* slow
And life likes to hit me when I'm already low
But I know for sure that you're gonna be here
You're always gonna be here by my side.

Maybe life is moving too fast
Making me question if it'll even last
But I know for sure that you're gonna be here
You're always gonna be here by my side.

It's the way that you talk to me
Like I'm the fallen star you've been wishing on
The way that you hold me tight
And the way that you keep me strong
I know that true love exists
And it's looking me right in the eyes
The world would shatter and break
If we ever had to say our goodbyes.

Technicolor windbreaker
Stuck on them like a sticker
A toddler got from the doctor
And put on the rearview mirror before
Mom could stop it,
Makes them feel
Like something
Green.

Something
Right-er
But not quite
Right-est
A few steps short
Of righteousness
Higher than anyone could
Hope to fly on a half-pipe
To Heaven.
What is security?
For I never felt it
in the love of others
and in my own fibers and cells.
