Love Song Drama

Somewhere the one I wanna be with's, with somebody else

Oh God I wanna be that someone that you're with

And I can talk about it all day long 'til I run out of breath

But I still wanna be that someone that you're with

I walk around with you in everything I see

Then I clearly hear the message Alan Jackson told me

Don't be falling in love as she's walking away

your heart won't tell your mind to tell your mouth what it should say

May have lost this battle, live to fight another day

Don't be falling in love as she's walking away

So I run to the car trying to ease my mind to the radio

But then the truth of my heart is explained a Hero

My heart's a stereo, It beats for you, so listen close

Hear my thoughts in every note, Make me your radio

And turn me up when you feel low, This melody was meant for you

Just sing along to my stereo

But this is crazy, so then I turn the Pandora on

No ease for my mind at the end of Vertical Horizon

Please don't think I being narcissistic

But the honesty of my heart makes me think this

I am everything you want, I am everything you need

I am everything inside of you, that you wish you could be

I say all the right things, at exactly the right time

But I mean nothing to you and I don't know why

Real talk I know why, I was a boy afraid to take a risk for love

I didn't understand in this battle I needed gloves

Phenobarbital and alcohol these two surely will do

To knock me out keep me down at least a day or two

When I'm awake I can taste how bitter I've become

It's more than I can bear somedays I pray someone will blow me away

Make it quick but let it burn so I can feel my life fade

It was a beautiful let down, when I crashed and burned

When I found myself alone unknown and hurt

The day I knew that all the riches this world had

to offer me would never do

So I have tried to pray that my Heart heals

But on my heart M5 speaks to me what real

But I cannot forget

Refuse to regret

So glad I met you and

Take my breath away

Make everyday worth all of the pain that I have gone through

You can lie with your mouth and even your mind

But the heart you cannot... Now keep this in mind

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
