I Think Too Many Things #2

by Ironic Allure   Jul 1, 2007


Bring out all the storm clouds you forgot to leave behind,
we'll burn down the sunlight until it gets dark,
they're not pretty patterns on my window pane, but this one is all for you.
i forgot to tell you many things, many things along the way,
and now too much time has been spent on closing these doors,
i understand if there's not a liable ear anymore.
but i think there's still some decency reserved inside those veins,
and i want to do my very best for you now,
since nobody ever warned you and i never meant to let you in;
I'm sorry that you caught me just a little off guard.
there's a blue word in my heart and if you could just spare me a minute,
i swear right now boy, i swear i could fix it.
just keep me away from all signs and distractions,
and forget everything you thought you knew,
I'll turn off the world and prepare you for this.
yeah, i did notice your eyes swallowed up all their sight,
so perhaps i was wrong when i thought you were right,
but please breathe for a second and enjoy the slow motion,
when the world stops spinning you'll have had enough.
and you ask me again if I'm coming back to bed,
fighting fire with fire just fuhcks with your head
so don't charcoal your fingers, just find that smile.
and don't make excuses, I'm just quick to recover,
let's not pretend like I'm much more than any other,
those eyes see straight through me and I've lost it in you,
and if i have to stretch this out, you know that i will.
stop stumbling and talking around windows that,
you can't open, you can't close and you can't jump through.
this isn't protection it's an attempt at control,
but I'm a changer and you can't depend on the wind,
so let's not pretend that we're something anymore,
you weren't the first or last or the worst,
because i didn't see you looking when you thought i messed up.
