In the Zone

I'm not a part of it all anymore,

the joy, laughter and happiness.

Gone is the confession,

reality has slipped beyond my grasp

but I should've known it wouldn't last.

I feel disillusioned and all I see are lemon trees.

I'm driving around and I'm driving too fast

and still I'm thinking that I knew it wouldn't last.

All I can see are the little things I failed at.

It's like their eyes follow me and it's like they can see,

my mistakes and all the things I wish I had done but I didn't.

It feels like I'm falling, falling all the way down.

It shouldn't have been this way,

but I hate you so much right now.

Maybe it's the pain that's eating me inside out

but what do I know what this is all about?

You took me by the heart and you took me by the hand,

so how am I supposed to understand?

I am not a part of your life anymore

no, it's all over now.

My confession is gone

and so are you

but I'm still striving for a 'something better'

and maybe that's why I'm writing this letter.

One day perhaps, when you read it,

please take me by the heart and take me by the hand.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

it's about a relationship that ended but you still love the person and want them back.
