Give Me A Reason

Standard

Give me a reason

Like leaves in the seasons

To change, for you

It’s been a long hard winter

I’m prepared to wither away

But you say you don’t want me to

Oh, you want me to stay

But oh, I don’t want to stand still

Just give me a reason

You beg and you’re pleading

For me

But you have nothing to give

Winter has ended

I don’t want to get left stranded

Watching you walk away

Oh no, no, no, no

Just give me a reason to stay.

To Be New

Standard

Your rays of heat

Melt the snow from me

Spring came too late

But I cannot wait-

I need to breathe

My lungs aren’t working…

I am still cold…

I need to come alive

I need to come to life

I need to…

I need you…

To lift me up

Into the sun

And watch me bloom

Until the

Moon wans

Like a lonely swan

I bow my head in shame

The light’s been gone

For so damn long

That it hurts

When you look my way…

I am still cold…

I need to be alive

I need the warmth inside

I need to feel

I need to heal

These blackened wounds

That prevent me to bloom

I will mend them

Soon I’ll have no excuse

For my selfish ties

When day does come

And spring has begun

I will know

To say goodbye

I need to say goodbye

I need to come to life

I need to…

I need to…

I need to feel the heart

Beating at the core

Of the earth

And I will be new

I will be new

Again.

I’ll Move On

Standard

Raining on the inside
Sunshine on the out
Gotta put a smile on
To hide the clouds
No I won’t let you see me cry
No you can’t have my heart this time.
There’s a tornado in myΒ rib cage
Lava fills my gut
Even though it hurts to breathe
I’ll move on
No I won’t let you see me fall
No you can’t hurt me at all.
‘Cause it’s winter in my brain
But summer’s in the air
Even though it’s snowing,
Well I just don’t care
No I won’t let you see me break
No you won’t bring me down today
No you won’t bring me down today
No you won’t bring me down today.

 

Summer, summer what to this year?

Standard

Summer, summer

Here I come

Light you up with a torch

Summer, summer

Here you are

Swinging on my back porch.

Summer, summer

Don’t you leave

I can’t take the chilly breeze.

Summer, summer

Stay forever

We don’t need that cool December.

 

Anyways now that I got that out of the way ;]. What am I going to be up to? Not much ;\ but I am working on a few songs I wrote the summer before my sophomore year of HS. I plan to re-write them and play them on my guitar…? What? Yes. Maybe. It’s been awhile so we’ll see. Other than that I have been nominated for another blog award! More about that coming soon ;] promise! And that’s all for now folks, see ya on the bloggin’ streets.

Tendencies

Standard

I have tendencies to push people away

When they only want to love me.

I have tendencies to spit fire

When I taste gasoline.

I have tendencies to shift my moods

Like the weather or phases of the moon.

I have tendencies to be unpredictable

Like a storm at sea

I have tendencies to soar

Like a spring breeze.

I have tendencies I cannot help

Because I am just being me.
