It's Just Like Breathing And Not Wanting To.

by Ironic Allure   Feb 15, 2009

This is just the way it goes, well it's all you've known or so i'm told,
So lie to me, feel less empty and hurry on home.
Blow up at the moon and find an excuse for all the mistakes that you have made,
And maybe you'll scream it all away someday.
We both know better but don't say a word because it's all very clear,
It's all changed and it's such a shame that
There'll never be enough to fix what was done here.
The wind of circumstance is blowing a breeze and it's fine with me,
It's not really fair, but it is what it is and i'm well aware that
These are your actions and this is my let down.
It's just the way it goes; well, it's all you've known,
So i hope the world's just as pretty with your back turned to it.
It seems such a waste but i'm so afraid to stick my neck out and wait
For just in case, or perhaps, or maybe i'm wrong.
But I'll still think of you, i'm quite sure i always will do,
Until the die i die, like you said, like you meant, like you thought it were true.
Just for now, let's slip away quietly like we were never around,
It's starting to hurt to find this just another lesson, these are your actions and
This is my let down.
