It’s another day

We lie awake in an empty grave

I can feel the past talk to me

The lasting smell of a memory

A conversation with a photograph

I tell her jokes and she laughs

She still looks at me the same

Because in my head nothing has to change

I do my best and try not to reach

I say it all as I hold my speech

I can see the stars in our skies

It’s the closest I get to looking into your eyes

He’s afraid to show her he still cares
She’s afraid he’ll vanish into thin air
They have both been here before
It’s a circle without any doors
One of them will break
Promises they will make
So they agree to meet in a cafe
He practices every word he will say
Only a fool would bother to show
But if he doesn’t than he will never know
In a room full of strangers
Two lovers estranged are threatened to become endangered
One of them must act
But the other must be able to react
A common goal
Without coming together two halves will never be whole

Often life doesn’t turn out like we plan

Just a few men with a bunch of Peter Pans

Too many girls playing games because of their mistakes

They find a good man but it’s not enough because of past heartache

We all just dick each other around

We hardly build up one another because we’re too busy putting each other down

Self-pity filled status updates crying out for attention

Click like and keep your mouth shut to avoid the tension

How can everyone always be right

And why is it the only road to peace starts with a fight

I don’t have to agree for us to get along

And two rights don’t fix a wrong

Beauty is found within

It’s not painted on while wearing slimmer jeans while you suck it in

The media paints their own opinion using fear as an illusion

It’s a form of prostitution

We sit behind our phones and judge

Everyone is quick to hate and afraid to love

We all need to learn to forgive

Because we are all going to die no matter how bad you want to live

Be thankful for what you have

It’s easy to make life but it’s another thing to be a mom and dad

When you have kids it’s no longer about you

It’s no one else’s job but yours to see them through

Too many people have their hands out

As we’re all slowly losing the meaning to what life is about

I want to go back to Saturday cartoons

When lunch was always served at noon

But I’m no longer a kid and it’s time for us to grow up

No more excuses because enough is enough

I took down your walls and let you rebuild

I took all I could and gave you something you could feel

Fragile moments I let slip through the cracks

All the quiet charades I would take back

I’d bury the love behind my pride just to be your friend

And be the one to be there with you by your side through thick and thin

I’d steal the courage behind the smile on your face

I’d love you all over again but this time with more grace

Tell me it all wasn’t a ruse and that life is just complicated

If we could go back would you try to escape it

Would you turndown my words in attempt to save your world

Even as strangers you’d still be my girl

All this time, the births and deaths can’t be erased

I stumble through the pain and my mistakes

And I don’t want to hurt anymore

But some doors weren’t made to be closed

My eyes fell upon you and there they shall forever stay

I wouldn’t want it any other way

I watch her grow through pictures
Reminding me how much I miss her
I was never any good at showing her affection
I want to speak but I’m afraid of the rejection
I write a text just to hit delete
I want to try but I feel so obsolete
I keep looking and can’t believe how much she has grown
For my lack of actions I must atone
But where do I start
When she’s too far away for me to reach her heart
Such a beautiful young lady she has grown to be
So much love I don’t allow her to see
It’s a form of abandonment
I want to fix it but I’m too inadequate
