drive

i can barely keep my eyes on the road
you’re really beautiful
i hope you know 
i hope you hear the song
we played on your birthday
when we kiss
or you think of me
and you want my time
my mind
sweet child o’ mine
for you i’ll drive
far away
we aren’t normal
or like the cool kids
money’s tight but i don’t mind
let’s just get out
and smoke behind a bar
get so high we’re numb
head’s beating like a drum
float through a cosmic time tunnel
try on a suit 
make my mom confused
i’m gay as hell, and she don’t mind
could steal your man if i tried
please don’t let me waste precious time
fuck you, fuck me, fuck everything
drove off a cliff into the sea
i wonder why she don’t like me
and why i broke my family
just stop cause i’m overriding
overworked computer crying and frying

goodbye, lonely friends

i used to walk behind you, 

just trying to catch up.

and then i walked beside you, 

eager to have so much.

then i walked before you,

and you were quite displeased.

you tripped me up and i fell,

with scrapes all on my knees.

i cried until he found me,

a charming, handsome prince.

while you kept on walking,

grief in your midst.

he put me back together,

i thought i'd made him mine.

but he had someone else

in the back of his mind.

goodbye faithful foes,

companions i used to know.

goodbye lonely friends,

who bring us to our end.

say goodbye to yesterday,

and tomorrow too, 

cause in the end you know i love you..

I’m Not Your Cinderella

I'm not your Cinderella,
I'm not pretty or skinny like her.

I'm not Princess Tiana.
She's motivated, and I'm obscure.

Im not basic like these princesses, yet I have my own magic.

But..If you get to know me, you'd realize I'm not plastic. 
 

I'm brave like Rapunzel,
Who fights men with kitchen tools

Or Moana and Meridith, 
who live the life they choose.

I'm not your average Princess,
who's scared to make a splash.

I'm a decent, humble balance,
And I'm alright with that.

Moonlit Avenue

On the moonlit avenue 
half shadows and silhouettes 
glide down shining pavement. 

On the moonlit avenue 
we glow like angels 
our eyes glimmer like stars. 

On the moonlit avenue 

waltz through the Milky Way 
and fly.

Lost


When your feeling lost
And you lose your love
And the whole wide world is against your soul
So you put on your masquerade
To blame them all
Despite the catastrophe 

The darkness consumes
And the light slowly falls
The world becomes worthless
Like your soul
It’s just how you feel
About it all

So you hide away
Behind your masquerade 
While the dark devours
All your words
And they slowly die
Despite the attempts you made

But your still here
Maybe that proves
There is still hope
After all?

Drifting Away

That mystical day in April
when you hugged me for the first time
it was magic
pure magic,
because maybe now you felt about me
the way I felt about you.
I felt your arms around me
and I
prayed my hopes were true.

But then we got pushed off
into orbit with the Moon.
And everything was nothing,
the world turned blue.
I was just
drifting away
drifting away
into an endless void,
so dark and dank.
I knew that you
did not love me
could not love me
so I was just
drifting away.

My life became a painting
I was using words to draw.
But then the rain came,
and the colors faded,
and my story was left in pieces,
falling on the floor
as if chopped
in two
by a saw.

Yeah, we got pushed off
into orbit with the Moon.
And everything was nothing,
the world turned blue.
I was just
drifting away

Who Are You?

Identity, such an interesting word.
It has a meaning, but so many antonyms that will never be heard.
I can't comprehend it, how can something so certain?
So understandable, yet it's such burden?

People lose their minds over who they want to be.
They take quizzes, read books, look over buzzfeed.
They sentence themselves to a lifetime a misery.
Only to be entangled in mindless intricacy.

But for who? For me or for you?
'Cause to be completely honest I don't give a crap what you do.
And for the people that do, that cririque and critize; they don't care about you they just waiting for your demise.
Don't bother with them, just take it from me.
Don't stand in a lake when there's a big vast sea.

A sleepless lover

I’m just laying in my bed, but I can not fall asleep. I mean my mind is full of thoughts, but it’s not the only thing. my heart is pounding with these feelings that I don’t understand. But I mean people say it’s not normal, Well I mean it’s normal to love, Oh oh… But I guess not for me-


They tell me that girls shouldn’t like other girls, even though I'm not one. I’m just a person that is all, with feelings like no other. But I guess I'll just stay quiet so I don’t abasis myself. Oh…
Why can’t it just be normal for me?


I’m just a sleepless lover with feelings like no other, but I’m told they aren’t normal, so I’ll just dream about her instead. Oh oh. I wish I could tell her ( just tell her)


I'm just laying in my bed while it is past midnight, I just can't fall asleep as the tears roll down my face. Why is it so unfair? Oh oh… Why can't I just love someone…Oh oh
Can I just fall asleep now?

The Garden

I always hated cheesy love songs, and corny couple one liners.
Things like " We have a one of a kind bond" or "I can't wait to walk you down the aisle"
It always seemed weird to me, how they said those things so easily.
I didn't believe it, it seemed so niave.
That's why I can't belive, believe that I got deceived.

It may have her eyes.
It have been her hair.
I don't care, I'm still angry that gave in.
The scam of helpless love, and I'm still pissed that that I fell in.

In my garden of helpless mistakes, this one sits in the middle
Surrounded by the lavender, and as I wander, wander the cobble path.
I still wonder that, if I didn't fall for the scam.
Would I still be as happy as I am?

First love, I can't understand it.
To be quite honest, I can't stand it.
This seemed like foreign concept.
You find it on your first attempt, you take it, and you keep at your hearts content.

(Not) Okay

I wish you missed me 
The way I missed you
When I said I love you 
You said you loved me too
But I guess it wasn’t true

Sometimes I stay up late
And wonder if you ever think of me
I wish you could see
On the inside, I’m crying 
On the outside, I’m lying 
Because I’m not okay

I’m not saying what we had was perfect 
But I’m saying it wasn’t
And that made it perfect for me
But I guess not for you (not for you) 

Sometimes I stay up late
And wonder if you ever think of me
I wish you could see
On the inside, I’m crying 
On the outside, I’m lying 
Because I’m not okay (not okay) 

Do I want things to go back?
No, but 
I don’t want to feel this pain anymore (anymore) 
But all I can think about is 
You walking out that door 

Sometimes I stay up late
And wonder if you ever think of me
I wish you would (could) see

To The Girl With the Chocolate Eyes

A million chances
Seven tries 
I've fallen in love 
Fallen into your eyes
Off the shoulder jacket
I have never had it
So bad for anyone before 

To the girl with the chocolate eyes
Do you dream about me too 
Do you feel the same way about me
That I feel about you?
If I told you that I loved you, would you say you loved me too?
Or would you tell me something else and leave all my daydreams screwed?
I know you don't know you're beautiful
I wish that you could see
You are the most beautiful
You're the perfect girl for me

I've already told you I love you
But I don't know if you remember
It's been a long time since then
I think it was September
I told you again on Valentine's Day
But I was too scared to sign my name
I might tell you again, but maybe not

To the girl with the chocolate eyes
Do you dream about me too

YOU'RE A F***ING LIAR

just a small pissed-off song about me hating how the public treats its stars and someone who lied to me time and time again :)

A Death at Dawn (to the tune of Ashes by the Longest Johns)

Hear a gunshot break the city’s silence
The quiet night shattered with a burst of violence
Although they bleed out, they are truly at peace
Maybe when they’ve died, they can learn how to live

The life they had led was not one they’re proud of
As they’d killed and they’d endured devoid of all love
And no more can they care about their own life
Maybe when they’ve died, they can learn how to live

Perhaps they’d been happy once, a long time ago
But they grew up too fast and their end came too slow
Soon they were more afraid of life than of death
Maybe when they’ve died, they can learn how to live

They do not believe in a life after death
They hope that there’s nothing after their final breath
They don’t believe they deserve a second chance
But maybe when they’ve died, they can learn how to live

Death comes for them now at the end of the night
