2 Line Simplicity
Before you I knew of nothing more worth the cry
Before you I knew of no harsher goodbye.
We go to the beach and stare into the ocean. We notice the waves and think of such tranquility . Why is it that we see such violence and think of it’s beauty? That’s the way I used to think of you..
Every time the waves would hit I’d close my eyes and think of you.
I’d think of your rough tide and the roar of your waters
and how still, I wanted to sit somewhere close and look into you.
I’d think of how I had jumped into you without knowing how deep and dark your ocean was
yet still, I trusted you.
How even when your biggest wave hit and you knocked me across the ocean floor,
I still stood up and went in again and again for more.
But within the strength of your high tide I found mine
and before I knew it I was able to find my own waters
and drift away from yours.
Give Me Back
Give me back what you once gave, then took away
And if you cant give that back
Then give me back what I gave to you, and you threw away
Because the choice has to be to walk completely together or walk completely alone
We can’t continue to walk two miles apart
Because what’ll happen is i’ll trip and fall, while you continue not to notice anything
But if we can walk completely together….
Then we may both trip
But we’ll be there to pick each other up
And if we choose to walk completely alone,
Then i’ll accept
But don’t forget to give ME back, to me
I know I shouldn’t
But it doesn’t mean that I don’t want to
I know its wrong
But it doesn’t mean that I want to be right
I know I shouldn’t crave your love
But I want to forget for one night
I want to forget the judgments forget the consequences
But if I take this risk, I can’t take it back
I know I’m the farthest from traditional
But I need to think things through
I shouldn’t say “Fuck all of the rules”
But they don’t apply to me and you
A Sea Change
I look out the window and wonder
How relaxing the ocean could be
A place where I could see stars from under
Just me and the sea
Living in this place gets too loud
Sometimes I can’t hear myself think
I feel as if I’m not living this life proud
My life is passing me by in a blink
I want to start over, become anew
Make new friends, make new memories
Become a person not always so blue
And maybe discover new therapies
Sometimes I imagine myself in a cute beach house
It has huge windows, and decorated in all white
I’m wearing a big sun hat and a flowy blouse
Making my way to the café so I can write
Why can’t I have all of this at home?
This desire is known as a Sea Change
Its normally when you start to feel so alone
That you decide you no longer want to stay
But it takes a lot of courage to leave
Its scary to start over, will I ever be brave enough?
Or maybe it’s just a fantasy, just another crazy dream
Another thing I “think” I want, another bluff
Maybe one day I could carry this one out
Finally, be adventurous, and take a true chance
I could truly live, instead of moping about
But for now, I’ll dream on…and live in another trance
