Since Last Summer

Wordage!!

The words out of my mouth

This And More

 

(It’s over, we made it…don’t want to wake up, wake up…it’s all my fault, it’s all my fault…)

 

I was speaking slowly

But I was talking to you

And every word I spoke

Was thoughtful, kind and true

 

We never had much substance

Like pictures erased, redrawn

But in the fullness of time

I hope I’ll lose this scorn

 

(It’s over, we made it…don’t want to wake up, wake up…it’s all my fault, it’s all my fault…)

 

Could you learn to feel it

Could you learn to know

That everything is broken

But breaks, heals, regrows

 

I’ll soon erase this feeling

But it’s hard to erase regret

I do need that redrawn picture

Don’t ever let me forget

 

Everything’s changed

 

I saw a furnace in this distance, and it’s all that matters to me

I saw a fire burn into your eyes, and the person that you wanted to be

I’ll take a picture of this heartache, and carry it around with me

I could’ve sworn I saw a ghost last night, but maybe I’m just lost at sea…

 

…and now the sun rises, now your moon sets, but everything’s changing (thought I was better off dead), everything’s changing (thought I was better off dead), everything’s changed…

 

Unwritten Letters

 

Could you ever give me any good reasons not to write this letter

Please don’t lie and tell me things are getting better

I’m concerned by the way life now seems so like an illusion

I’m perplexed by the way you touched your hair and light the candle

Pull this thorn out of my side, don’t tell me things are getting better

And you still haven’t given me a reason not to write this letter

 

Leaves fall in autumn but it’s never enough

And I sat around, but you’re boring and stuff…

 

I could never leave you, but you’re just so far away

I would kiss away your tears, and yeah I wish that I could stay

I could never leave now, but you’re just too far

I would kiss away your tears, I remember driving in your car

 

But this statement of intent is intentionally obscure

And in the end aren’t we all just looking for something that makes us feel secure

I’m concerned by the disappearance of long standing apathy

I’m perplexed by the way her smile breaks my heart

Pull this thorn out of my side, don’t say things are getting better

And you still haven’t given me a reason not to write this letter

 

Leaves fall in autumn but it’s never enough

And I sat around, but you’re boring and stuff…

 

I could never leave you, but you’re just so far away

I would kiss away your tears, yeah I wish that I could stay

I could never leave now, but you’re just too far

I would kiss away your tears, I remember driving in your car

 

The Things You Said

 

Change has come and gone away, but I’d change it all if I could stay

If I could stay, if I could stay, a million words that I would say

Well I’d start with all the things we’d done; the days we’d shared, the songs we’d sung

And I’d end with what you’ve left to me: a broken heart, some memories

 

And the things you said

 

It’s what you want it to be, it’s what you hear and what you see

And what you see, and all you see, is a racing pulse, some melodies

I tried to clear the path ahead from broken branches, dreams we’d had

But the days are growing awful dark, and my world is being pulled apart

 

By the things you said

 

How can I win when I’m not trying?  But all this could be yours and mine

Your and mine, yours and mine; I hope there’s more that if I look, I’ll find

I see them talk, don’t hear a sound, but ask me now and I’ll come around

And it’s dumb I know but I feel regret, and I’m trying so hard not to forget

 

All the things you said

 

Talk To Me

 

I know this is so gentle and so sweet (you’re neat)

And acts as an insult, or a solitary invitation

I know you’re guessing which way to turn

You burn as ideas are passing, I just hope that this is lasting

I try to be everything I see before me, just cos what inside is scary

 

But it’s so unnecessary

 

What’s now gone once was mine, but it breaks my heart to see you crying…talk to me!

 

Are you trying to be someone you’re not? You’re lost

Philosophy comes too easily, yet means everything to me

I know you’ve been hurting for so long, you’re strong

I hope you know that you’re not the only one become

A person unique, and not one with ideas of dying, just because you’re tired of trying

 

But I’m tired of trying

 

What’s now gone once was mine, but it breaks my heart to see you crying…talk to me!

Always Been You

 

When you hear a song does it have meaning?

Does it reflect something already there?

And if it doesn’t can you still call it music?

Well, regardless it’s one less thing we can share

 

But it’s an echo of what I’ve been feeling

Like a letter  that takes you back in time

And I’d hope we could go on forever

Then find an ending with which we conclude

 

You’re so true, it’s always been you!

 

If the lights went out could you feel it?

If the sun went down would you even care?

If I told I never tried to worry,

Even tried to love every moment

 

Would you believe me? It’s true! It’s always been you!

 

But when our hearts were crossed did you mean it?

When our breaths embraced did you even care?

If we tried could we shower every starting point?

Or embrace every outcome?

 

We are one…there are none!

 

This is just the beginning, this is just the start

With silent eyes and broken hearts

 

We stumble forward, we stumble back

Then wonder what we’ve become…you’re outcome, my heartstrung, it’s always, it’s always been you

 

My Ideal

 

Say you don’t love me no more

Leave me asleep on the floor

Say you don’t need me no more

Take me out we’ll talk until dawn

 

Walk on beaches, dance on sand

Take me out and hold my hand

I would wait all year until it snowed, and then we’d do it all again

Fate waits, breaks, aches to intervene

 

…here comes the verse, let’s paint the scene…

 

We closed our eyes and escaped

I hope it’s not too late

No, it’s just a matter of time

When the stars all say it’s gonna be fine

 

Walk on beaches, dance on sand

Take me out and hold my hand

I would wait all year until it snowed, and then we’d do it all again

Tears break like waves part upon the shore

 

…but now I’m sure, it’s you I adore…

 

The Big Picture

 

I hope you know it’s dark tonight

But I can’t help but feel safe in your eyes

To blink would be to black me out

And you know that’s not what I’m about

 

It was night’s like that I was on top of the world

Thoughts coiled around this or that girl

But now I find it hard to sleep

When life means so much more than dreams

 

It only feels like it was yesterday, when we knew we were all the same

And I would search and search until I found that what was then, it still is now

If you asked me, I hope I would not hesitate, I’d always say that ‘I’m not like that anyway’

 

Now I’m done I’m back to life

Distance allows me to see it’s alright

Perspective’s like putting glasses back on

It allows you to see where you’re going wrong

 

And now I wish that I could hesitate, call it off or just frustrate

I’m in the depths of common sense, before I was just paddling in the shallow end

But love’s too complex to let you swim, before you know it’s dragged you in;

My answer stays the same: ‘I’m not like that anyway’

 

Cuddle up to your innocence, it’s something that comes free with privilege

But it’s all part of the big picture, life’s a sum of parts, of that I’m sure

And I cannot wait to tell you all, to describe that picture on the wall

So I’ll end it with a phrase: ‘I’m not like that anyway’.

 

The Last Journey

 

So what about some problems we’ve had less than most

I’ll forget about the bad times we’ve had, now the good ones are close

I know this existence is getting you down, but we’ve had so much to share

I’ve plotted out one last night for escaping all this mess, and I’m hoping on seeing you there

 

Now so much is changing, so much I can hardly grasp

But our memories are something only we have, that mean this’ll always last

Remember all those parties that we hated, oh the teenage misery of it all!

But now I’m frightened of the vastness of the distances out there, I’m scared by how far I could fall

 

It was always meant to be this way

No more thought over the words I’d say

 

So treasure what you’ve got because before you know it, it’s gone

There’ll be times when things go right for you, and as many that go wrong

I can still see all those friends and places that I used to know

They’re with me here on this, the last journey, the last one before we all go

 

It was always meant to be this way

No more thought over the words I’d say

I hope you know that I care

I hope you know that I’ll be there...
