This can’t be life
I had to think twice
You said that we would be forever
That you would never leave
Well how come now it’s just me
I think these walls are starting to cry
Who knew the sun could die
There’s no light, only dark
No cool breeze, only slow rain
Happiness is temporary, forever is pain

Growing up she wanted everything
She realized that sometimes you get nothing
Blessed and cursed her feelings ran deep
Talking so deep it’s hard to sleep
Hates to speak but knows what’s brewing
Holding on to what some would consider nothing
She takes it all so you don’t have to feel
Hardest fruit you’d ever peel
The pain runs throughout her heart like blood through veins
She hates to get wet but loves when it rains
She thought she lost you, well it felt like it
You tell her that the feelings are wrong
It’s all in her dome
She should be more tranquil
Maybe don’t wear that shirt
That style just won’t work
You don’t know but you’ve proved her point
But her feelings were wrong because she didn’t lose you she lost herself

It's cool
I'm fine

These things I say,
I usually don't mean
They're usually just a blanket,
A blanket I toss over my heart
It's doesn't help me feel better,
But it helps you
So you can believe you're not breaking my heart,
Shattering my very existence with words that you probably see as nothing
But see I'm too messed up for that to be true
Maybe it's the pain of my absent father
Maybe it's the pain of feeling alone
Maybe it's the pain of not knowing why I'm here
Maybe I can't be who you want me to be...

Late night,
In the dark,
Matters of the heart weigh heavily on me
Thoughts of losing you makes me feel empty
I'm usually more stable, please excuse me
You just seem too important to ever love me...

Wanting everything but enemies
Materials mean nothing when you ain't got your brother
What happened to loving one another
You focus on grammar just to escape the message
Having tough conversations with yourself cause no one else will listen
Maybe you don't want them to
Maybe you're better off fixing it on your own
Maybe you're just young you'll figure it out once you're grown
Plot twist, that doesn't happen
You're still lost, steady looking at the map
You flip it, maybe it's the wrong way
Or maybe it's you that's got this whole thing wrong
Life's not going to wait
You better figure it out soon
Look in front, it's your classmates everybody's ahead of you

There's a pain in my heart,
Because it's almost dark,
And I know I won't be laying next to you
Why couldn't I just do right by you...

He is incredibly him
The best him, he could possibly be
He brings out the best him in me

Looking in the mirror, seeing him behind me
In this moment I feel love is real

It's so easy to take
He chooses to give
On my own I'm just alive
He helps me live
