brick street – unfinished song – 8/17

i used to feel blessed just to be in your company. everything you set eyes on was holy ground to me, but now that you’ve turned your back and i’ve grown up i see that holy ground is just cobblestones ‘neath my feet.

i’ll take the blame (unfinished song)

empty words come easier than the real ones- maybe that’s why the cost is cheap. but just like me they’re not as strong, no, they can’t hold the weight of what i mean.

oh, tell me the truth. it can’t be as hard as they say, at least i know that it can’t hurt. oh, give me the truth; as clean and simple as it’s name. oh, tell me the truth and i’ll take the blame.

it’s been so long since we both looked up and saw that big old moon shining bright. all too soon, we’d be seeing different skies; had our backs turned all this time. but on a whim i glance behind to see you were long gone- oh, we were still singing, just very different songs.

oh, tell me the truth. it can’t be as hard as they say, at least i know that it can’t hurt. oh, give me the truth; as clean and simple as it’s name. oh, tell me the truth and i’ll take the blame.

 

wasting all of my time (unfinished song)

i’m not sure what to say cause i’m not sure how i feel. it feels right next to you, but i know you won’t steal me away- and that’s okay, that’s fine with me. it’s honestly alright, oh i don’t mind wasting all of my time on you.

if i could put it into words, it’d be the way you laugh. oh, the smile in your eyes, it’s the best look they’ve ever had, and it’s all that i can do just to wonder what’s behind. but no matter what i find, oh i don’t mind wasting all of my time on you.

hopeless (unfinished song)

i’m thinking maybe in five years from now, we’ll have it figured out, expecting i learn to follow my own directions. they always said they’d lead exactly to where i wanted to be, but i was too blind to pay attention. and then there you were, hiding the sunrise in your smile, and leaving me feeling like a child with too many words to say:

i want to talk to you all day, want to make you want to stay, want to give you all i have and say i never need it back. i want to see this to the end, want to be your best friend, want to work to make it work when things seem hopeless. oh, when its hopeless. hopeless, oh, i’m helpless and hopeless: hopeless in love with you.
