Nevermore

Nevermore, nevermore
I have never loved you more
Than when I held you
At a distance
And built a wall between us
And rejected every plea
Asking for my company
No, Love
I will never love you more
Nevermore, nevermore

Dark

I’m afraid of the dark
But I turn the lights off
Cause I’d rather feel fear
Than know you’re not here
So I stand in the dark
And I walk around blind
With my arms open wide
My hands search through the air
Hoping they’ll find you there
But I should know better

What You See

It’s time to go to bed
But you can’t sleep
You try to rest your head
But the thoughts, they creep

All around on the floor
Crawling under the door
You thought you left them behind
They’re coming back for more

And you ball up your fists
You really hate nights like this
You scream into the sheets
You’re coming out at your seams

It seems you’ve fallen apart
It seems you’ve broken your heart
You can’t see past your own scars
You can’t see through the dark

You take a look in the mirror
Try to change what you see
You want to impress me
Be the one I want to meet

I want to meet who I’ve seen
Everyday of the week
Every month of the year
You see, I love you dear

I love the way that you blush
I love the way that you fuss
And when you look at me
I really love what I see

It seems I’ve fallen apart
It seems you’ve stolen my heart
I think you’re my missing part
You’re my light in the dark

Starstruck and Hopeless

Where do stars go when they die?
I watched one burst and ignite the sky
I felt the warmth leave me behind
In cold and dark and endless time

We both held hands as the light left our world
A starstruck boy and a hopeless girl
Standing alone in the void that was forged
We closed our eyes and began to move forward

We don’t need light to know what’s ahead
We follow our hearts and ignore our heads
Our steps are small, and our journey long
But together we’ll make it, together we’re strong

Do You Believe?

Do you believe if we stare at the sky
Eventually we’ll see God’s eye
Staring back in curious awe
At the love we made when he created us all

Do you think the angels sing
Behind the stars so we can’t see
The way they blush when they see us
Just like you did at the first show of lust

Or maybe that was you singing
Your instrument perfectly tuned
Pushing and pulling on my heart
As if I was the ocean and you were the moon

Do you believe if we stare into each others eyes
Eventually we’ll see the rest of our lives
Playing out like some elaborate scheme
As if God meant for you to be with me

Come Back To Me

I still sleep with my window open at night
I still secretly wish that you would come over here
And hold me the way you did that night
When your heartbeat flooded my ears

I still feel your impression on my pillow
I still see your phantom under my sheets
Your side of the bed is warmest place I know
Your smell is the smoothest sweet

I still pray with my eyes open
I still call your name while I’m asleep
If you see my window open
I love you, come back to me

To Be

I want to be good
Just enough to get by
Without any notice from you

I want to be simple
Not quite so abstract
That you keeping coming back

I want to be dull
Something borrowed and scratched
That you’ll throw in the trash

I want to be ugly
Someone no one would want
And whose thoughts would constantly taunt

But you won’t let me
You make me better than most
And you laugh at my jokes
You stand up and clap when everyone’s comatose

You say I’m a mystery
And that I’m hard to read
That sometimes you can’t tell
If it’s you that I need

You say that you love me
That I’m all that you see
And that you’ll wait for me
Until I figure out what I want to be

I want to be yours

If You Want Me To

I won’t leave
If you want me to stay
It was our hearts
That made us this way

We gave up the fight
Now we must pay the cost
Forever together
Til one heart is lost

You sleep in my arms
I creep in your heart
And make my bed there
So we’re never apart
