You asked the world “where’d the love go?”
You asked the world for mercy on your tired soul.
You asked and yet the world did not answer.

So you took the bricks it threw, and let it bury you
You can move a little
You still have some wiggle room
Yet you lay there still
Staring at the sun until night falls and the moon comes
Anticipating a miracle
Your bones are being crushed
Your body has been bruised
You still stay there immovable
Until a stranger comes and says to you
“Oh dear, why are you laying here?”
You think for a while and say
“I’ve got no choice these bricks won’t move so here’s where I’ll stay.”
The stranger looks perplexed and exclaims “Surely that may be that these bricks are upon your chest, but child your arms and legs are free!”
“Yes sir that is true, but they are too heavy to move aside” you reply.
“How would you know if you haven’t even tried?”


Just Friends

You were there when no one else was
You caught me at just the right time
Waited for the perfect moment
Just like a robber ready to commit a crime
I never thought it’d be me
The one too stupid to see
That friendship isn’t what it used to be

We were ‘friends’, isn’t that right?
The kind of friends that spoke late into the night
The sort of friends that love would never find
It was great, it was all fine
Until you started messing with my mind
You drew close to me
But still far away
Oh the games you knew how to play
You must’ve done your homework
To find the right bate to get me hooked
I knew it by the way you looked
Friends don’t look at each other like this…
I’m no easy catch
Yet you got me and you got me good
Making me question where we stood

Your eyes were the ocean dragging me in with the current
Pushing me away with every tide
One hell of a rollercoaster ride
Your kiss was the calm after the storm
The only thing scarier than the taste of poison on your lips was the comfort of home in your embrace

We weren’t friends let’s face it
I was a placeholder to fill your lonely
I was a shoulder on which you could lean
Another girl to boost your self-esteem
