Escapism

20171017_183733.jpg

You took my heart captive

And demanded a ransom

And I’ve been paying the price

Year after year

I’ve been praying to Christ

Hoping that He hears

I’m just saying my life

Is nothing but these tears

Bottled up inside

Toast to me

Cheers

And they’re spilling now

Drowning everything

But there’s a way out

Promise everything

Is ok now

Sigh of relief

mixed with a little bit of

sadness

Take a good girl

And try to turn her

into a savage

I know what I want

And I know that I

Could never have it

Heart’s still racing

Pounding by the second

And time’s a wasting

Been here all my life

And I’m tired of waiting

For the prefect guy

To come and save me

I’m drowning in this tide

Timeline

🌹

Timeless as a rose
The story of you and I
It was as if time
itself had froze
The moment
you caught my eye
Oh cliché I know
But time and space
Don’t lie
You’ve been running
through my mind
I’ve been trying to
jog your memory
Chasing that silver lining
Hoping that you’d
remember me

Crossroads

Red lights glare
Enter if you dare
The daydreamers stare
Empty as the air
Manic horns blare
Piercing the silent night
Are we almost there
I may be wrong
But I think you’re right
I’m feeling every care
That I’ve ever cared
Building up inside
Spilling through my eyes
Speak easy
but speak these lies
Are you ok
Yes I’m alright
