A Ghost Story

The light is making it hard to see
And this love makes it hard to breathe
I might be gone but still I worry
And you might be absent but are still part of this story
I loved you then and I love you now
And I always will, even when it’s not allowed

Songs on the Radio

Songs on the Radio

Through the music on the radio

I see your face and feel your soul

So much that I want to pick the phone back up

But we both agree enough is enough

It’s so hard to unfollow our dreams

To step behind the camera and stay behind the scenes

They say a picture is worth a thousand words

So imagine the hurt caused by seeing two birds

My wings were clipped

I lost my grip

It was hard to breathe

But that’s…

Lemon Drops

It’s not that you never left But that you kept my breath You taught me humiliation And the difference between hope and flirtation

Not Everything Has Changed

Not Everything Has Changed

You stood in front of me like a window into the past

So many questions but I was too afraid to ask

You held my heart like a lit cigarette

So many feelings I could no longer forget

I saw your face like it never aged

And I loved you like I did yesterday

A Million Miles Away

A Million Miles Away

On the mountain side

I’m here tonight

Let the sun melt the snow

Watch the water flow

The past is just a story

In its true colors, full of naive glory

So many chapters

With unexpected ever after’s

Always here a million miles away

I never loved anyone the way I loved you today

(it’s) About Time

Hello, I’m here

It’s been a few years

I was sad to see you go

But some things are made only for show

She sits alone in two states

She fights for him even if she knows it’s too late

She builds walls just to let him back in

She wants to start over but doesn’t know where to begin

She wants to write but the words don’t feel like her own

She hesitates to call a place home

Two midgets pull on regrets

A bruised heart that cannot forget

She wants to scream but she can’t find justification

She doesn’t…

Just Another Day In September

Just Another Day In September

Take away my hopes and dreams

Take away what you meant to me

Because I must leave you behind

So far away that you’ll be impossible to ever find

I must delete everything that I’ve been holding on to

It’ll be a hard accomplishment since not even time has been able to cover up the very thought of you

Forget the times when it all felt so innocent

When we were naked and you looked heaven sent

You made…

Cage the Elephant

The words I write fall meaninglessly of this page
As the words you once spoke start to show their age
There is no common ground left for either of us to stand
And I am growing weak and cannot keep up with my heart’s demands
For my love is eternal and shall never fade
But perhaps some monsters are best kept locked away

Love the Day

I sit alone
Staring at my phone
I see your face in black and white
And all these urges I must fight
Fuck you for being so damn beautiful
I need to find a way to make all this love usable
I feel so feeble in my attempt to forget the past
I let it all go but I fall too fast
I can no longer grasp this reality
Some things are not meant to be
I try to breathe but I start to hyperventilate
I see your…

A Messenger

It’s just a thought
What is real and what is not
Feelings go unexplained
Heartache surrounds with no blame
But still there’s love to be found
Even without tiptoeing around
Little pieces to the puzzle
It’s a picture I painted in a bubble
If I speak it’ll all come out strange
Even though we grow nothing will ever change
I see a picture and my heart melts
I fumble for words to explain what is felt

Postcards & Polaroids

Staring through my rearview

I keep searching for you

Switching lanes

But it all stays the same

You were like my cruise control

But cruising in a stolen car took its toll

I was just a footnote on your collapsing ever after

I thought I was your leading man but I was just another supporting actor

I couldn’t fix what was broken behind that smile

Every day for you I went that extra mile

So my hands…

Reruns of You

This love I have for you, it’s shameless

I could beat my head against a wall and it’s painless

I love you too selfishly to ever be your friend

I write you so many texts but I could never hit send

I watch you from a distance, never knowing what to say

Holding on to memories and any words you throw my way

I wish I knew how to write my way back into your heart

And I wish I knew the moment for you…

Just Another Thought Of You…

Just Another Thought Of You…

You’re a constellation of stars

I’m a consolation in your heart

I broke your façade

You left me flawed

We always would color outside the lines

We broke all the rules and now we’re paying for all our fines

And I love you still

And always will
