Sunlight trickles away,
and the street lamps quench the wondrous stars.
Tossing beneath the sheets,
I recall the sound of passing cars.
Venetians of shame
and all the spreads that were stained
never fail to cast shadows on me.
As I'm lying awake, I'm dreaming
about all of the things that I just can't say.
Yet that taste in my mouth reminds me
how I wish, how I long to take my life
back from you.
Your life keeps moving on
while my oxygen flips to the red.
They say it's all my fault
butterfly weed's bloomin' 'round my head.
Hey is this all real?
No, I don't know what to do!
I just want my own happy ending!
All my memories stand divided
"Who I am" pit against "Who I was before".
(I'm) spinnin' 'round and around. Please help me!
Every hand that I touch only reminds me of
I'm sleeping, I'm turning, I'm aching, I'm seething.
These lines I am treading are blurring into themselves.
Over and under, these weeds show their hunger.
They're piercing my shoulder.
It hurts, why can no one see?
That I've been trying, my heart keeps on crying.
Its beat keeps on climbing. I'm hoping to see the rain
snuff out the fire, the visions, the liars.
All this I desire, so that I can
Every step that I take will help me
overcome all this fear that has me in chains.
If I ever feel trapped or silenced,
close my eyes, know I'm loved, take a breath and
sing this verse.
