Nothing to Lose

by ..::Angel of your darkness::..   Jan 4, 2009


This is a song I wrote about someone I know

You laugh like nothing matters
And sing like its all okay
Well I bet there's more to you than that

You drink like it's the only way to be
And sit back and watch the world go by
Well I bet there's reasons for that

Prechorus
I've watched your hands strum the strings of that guitar
And I've seen that look in your eyes
Only to watch it die behind your smile

chorus
I never thought I'd reach a wall as strong as mine
But honey your impenetrable
Don't you know it's better to feel something
Than nothing at all
I thought you were smarter than that

You walk away from everything you have to try for
And no indecision crosses your face
Well I bet you've lost more than you've gained

I watched you walk away from me
And I'm not one to follow
But I followed you

Prechorus
Because I've watched your hands strum the strings of that guitar
And I've seen that look in your eyes
Only to watch it die behind your smile

chorus
I never thought I'd reach a wall as strong as mine
But honey your impenetrable
Don't you know it's better to feel something
Than nothing at all
Maybe you'll learn the hard way

Don't you know you have to fall to fly
And laughter isn't appreciated until you learn to cry
Well I bet you've never even tried

Prechorus
Because I've watched your hands strum the strings of that guitar
And I've seen that look in your eyes
Only to watch it die behind your smile
I just wish you could see
There's so much more to you than that

    I can relate to this...

    Such a sad song about him... Yet a frustrating place for you to be in, as its you that sees through the mask... That he so Desperately tries to stay hidden behind.
    If he'd only let you in, he'd see that he is adored,
    For everything that he is... And if his where no longer
    Blinded, he'd see how happy he could be.

    I'd love to hear this played
    Well done, great write :)
