Love is Like That

 

Ain’t it funny how I used to be everything you wanted?

Now you don’t give me the time of day.

Tell me what you want me to say:

I’ve given up on our love.

Baby, I’ve had enough

Of being played by you.

Now you see the door

That you can walk through.

 

My love ain’t like that,

You can’t say that you need me,

Then you don’t want me.

You must be crazy

To do me like that.

In the Darkness

 

Deep in the darkness I’m always alone.
How did I get here what is to show?
I walk out of the darkness and into the light:
Never again will I suffer this plight.

I Don’t Need You

When we first met you were different

Made me smile every day

Now there’s teardrops and there’s hatred

More and more each day

You said I was your only

The one you need around

But then things turned out slowly

starting to burn down

 

Well I don’t need you:

I can’t believe I thought you were

The one for me,

And I, can’t wait ’til I’m over you

You’re just some useless hatred and misery.

Fall to Pieces

 

I looked away

Then I looked back at you

You tried to say things that you can’t undo

If I had my way

I’d never get over you

Today’s the day I pray that we make it through

Make it through the fall

Make it through it all

 

I don’t wanna fall to pieces

I just wanna sit and stare at you

I don’t wanna talk about it

And I don’t want a conversation

I just wanna cry in front of you

I don’t wanna talk about it

Cos I’m in love with you

 

You’re the only one I’d be with until the end

When I come undone

You bring me back again

Back under the stars

Back into your arms

 

I don’t wanna fall to pieces

I just wanna sit and stare at you

I don’t wanna talk about it

And I don’t want a conversation

I just wanna cry in front of you

I don’t wanna talk about it

Cos I’m in love with you

 

Wanna know who you are

Wanna know where to start

I wanna know what this means

Wanna know how you feel

Wanna know what is real

I wanna know everything

Everything

 

I don’t wanna fall to pieces

I just wanna sit and stare at you

I don’t wanna talk about it

And I don’t want a conversation

I just wanna cry in front of you

I don’t wanna talk about it

Cos I’m in love with you

I’m in love with you

not man enough

 

we are the kids that know how to rock

everybody knows us cos we own this spot

people try and act cool when they hang with us

but cool is not enough cos

we’re bout to make beats drop

you’re always trying to be ahead of us

but you best

keep

back

cos

you’re just not man enough

Fear

 

1.

Fear is the thought of being alone

Fear strikes us all and leaves us breathless

I sink to my knees alone

Letting the darkness swallow my soul

Alone to rot.

 

2.

I curl up in the darkness feeling alone.

I look up seeing nothing, I start to groan.

A light – I see it – I head towards the light

Never again I will suffer this plight.

People

 

I look all

around me, all

the people being

selfish, angry, rude,

Why can’t

people be kind

instead of always

being in a mood

people are everywhere

nagging, shouting, arguing.

With me

I just want to be

Home

left alone.

With me.

A Friendly Gesture

 

From scooter rides, to quiet drives along the rocky roads.

Or Madagascar madness, among the cinema rows;

He’s paid to do those flips and spins that wow’d so many crowds,

But should be careful where he lands, his feet should touch the ground.

Although he’s quiet, don’t be fooled, this guy likes to party.

But pass him some of those vodka shots, his heart would surely fail,

to withstand the sheer volume of alcohol that entails.

There’s so many words to describe this guy, but amazing springs to mind.

The life he dreams isn’t far to reach,

all it needs is time.
