We aren't kids anymore

I don't need this,
I don't need this,
what is this?
no I won't do this.
I won't I won't I won't.
yet we aren't kids anymore.

I can't do this.
I don't know how.
I can't have this
warmth or passion.
With eyes fly sparks.
I know you too well,
You will do this.
We aren't kids anymore.

My hearts beats against
my sanity, a bird in a ribcage.
a rose woven to my scalp,
a promise I let slip.
where did it leak from?
from me.
I want this but
I can't have this.
but we aren't kids anymore.
and right now I want
you more then life.
don't go...
I want you.
don't let this break and
shatter like my will.
My heart is a flightless
bird without you.
a cold body without your
ocean of joy.
yes, we aren't kids anymore,
let fall that innocence,
it's about time to grow.
life is a rough and tumbling
journey on a boat,
but at least it'll be one with you.
We aren't kids no more.
