You can distract me when
I'm older.
You can have all the
pieces of my heart.
I'm soaking up the sun,
trying to live out my dreams.
I'm taking it day by day,
not letting anyone stand
between her and I.

I know it's a crime.
I just can't let it go
yet.
I know I'm wasting
my time.
I guess it's just not
time for me to become
a prodigal son.

Someday I'll do it the
legal way.
I'll get down on my hands
and knees.
I'll ask her to claim my
heart.
Her father will give me
his blessing.
I won't stop until
I hear him say I'm clear
for take off.

I know it's a crime.
I just can't let it go
yet.
I know I'm wasting
my time.
I guess it's just not
time for me to become
a prodigal son.

Is it true what they say?
Will you leave the
lights on for me?
Will you come running
if I wanna come back
to you?
Will my brother throw
a fit at the sight of my
face?
Will he refuse to show
me grace?

I know it's a crime.
I just can't....
Not based on actual events. Although most of us probably know what it's like to sin at some point in our lives. We can certainly all relate to the feeling of being lost.
I'd take back all my words
that only made you hurt,
but I know that it
doesn't work.
So I'll just say all that
I can say. I'm sorry
I spoke that way.

Now the rest is up
to you. What are you
gonna do with me?

I'd go back in space and
time, try to make you
mine, but it'd
take too many lifetimes.
So I'll just dream how I
could've been with you.
I'm sorry my dreams
didn't come true.

Now the rest is up
to you. What are you
gonna do with me?

I'm sorry, Sydnee.
I couldn't be the guy
to sweep you off your
feet. I couldn't get to
know you better,
that's why I sent stupid
letters. Only one had
the truth, but I'd take
them both away from
you.

So I'll just say all
that I can say. I'm sorry
I spoke that way.

Now the rest is up to
you. What are you gonna
do with me?
In real life, I have no idea what her reaction was. I don't know if she was hurt by it, but if I could take it back I would.
I wish I'd hung on to you,
but I let you go.
I wish I could dig you out
of the trash,
and bring you close to
me.

I would continue with you,
where I left off.
I would create more out
of you,
and make a world of
laughter.

You fell down to the bottom,
and could not float.
The trash piled up on top
of you,
and I couldn't see you
anymore.

I know you'd continue,
if it was up to you.
It's all you have in the
world,
to find ways to make
us laugh.

I wish I'd hung...

I would continue...

I know you'd continue...
I threw away my humor. I used to post them on this site a few years ago. They're gone now.

Why did I let myself go
to waste?
I had to do what I had
to do, but I didn't do it.
Now I'm here stuck
in this cellar.
I'm rotting away,
turning to bone.

Where are you now that
I'm here?
You warned me cause you
had to warn me, but you didn't
stop me.
Now I'm here stuck
in this cellar.
I'm rotting away,
turning to bone.

It's not your fault.
I'll see you again.
No real life event inspired this one. I suppose you could say it was a combination of my imagination and watching shows like Criminal Minds.
