relationship

Outsider

Folder: 
Band Lyrics

 

Verse 1:

Always on the outside, looking in.

I never knew love found me here.

Until you take me on,

Babe, I cannot do it without you.

For, you are my heaven.

Eternally your’s to keep,

You have my spirit.

Lead and guide me.

 

Chorus:

I am just an outsider looking in.

Do not judge me if you do not know me.

I have had my shares of issues and trauma.

Don’t break my trust

Once it is earned.

I can see no one but you.

Only you will do.

It’s you I see in my dreams

And in my future.

‘Cause I know, we’re better together.

‘Cause we’re better than ever.

 

Verse 2:

Since you were away,

Everything has changed.

Only the distance between you and I has increased.

Yet, it’s never enough.

I keep on wanting and needing you in my life.

But, now, it’s time to say our goodbyes.

For, this relationship of ours could have been something more

If only you’d given us a chance.

If only you’d make the first move.

If only you’d let me in.

If only you’d told me how you really felt for me.

You know me well

But, what is it that you feel?

 

Bridge:

If I already knew that 

You were mine to keep,

I wouldn’t have wasted time.

Now, it’s time for me to put myself into your hands.

Don’t let me go.

For, the grass is not greener on the other side.

I’ve been there without you

But without you, is something I cannot be or do.

‘Cause I know, we’re better together.

‘Cause we’re better than ever.

Always on the outside, looking in.

Reciprocated Love

Folder: 
Band Lyrics

 

Verse 1:

Even while I’m gone:

 Where’d you go?

When someone will take my place,

Wherever you will go, I will go there too.

 

Chorus:

 Whenever we’re alone,

Our song plays in the background.

You’re swimming in peace for so long

‘Cause I’m drowning in your tears.

 

Verse 2:

‘Cause babe, the possibilities are endless.

I surrender, I surrender my heart to you.

Been living a lie for much too long.

I’ll see you again once the stars fade away.

 

Bridge:

While waiting for you,

I see you again

In the parking lot…

It’s where we’re finally free

 

Last-Chorus:

 It’s just only my heart

Wipe those tears away.

I know that this is how you feel

Now that I realized what you feel,

I’ll reciprocate them for you.

Though, it’s a little too late.

Written in 2014. Will share more from 2014 since I wrote 50+ songs that year in a few months time

Simply Forgotten

Can I please stop thinking of you?

Leave my thoughts,

And take my insecurities 

 

What you left in your wake,

As you simply disappeared

 

No words

Nothing

I'm just left to wonder why

 

Fuck this inner ache

Fuck this forever pain

 

I wish you'd come back

Swoop me up

And tell me this is all a joke 

 

I wish I could hold you

Lay on you, or

You could lay on me

 

What did we even have?

Did any of it have meaning?

 

Here I am again

Rambling 

 

Fuck you for hurting me

Fuck you for the gut punch to my heart

 

Thank you for ruining a piece of me

As you remain silent

And I am simply forgotten

Siren From The Depths

Seeing behind your disguise

Facing the truth

Of the evil man you are

Of the turmoil you've caused

 

Your hands around my throat

Asphyxiation

My eyes pop open wide

Fingers feeling numb

 

Justice will be met

No longer are you free

Today is the day

Of judging your character

 

Sail away from your problems

Feel you owe me nothing 

Sense a bit of freedom

But always let a thought linger

 

Of the woman

Half fish

Who never stole your heart

But did steal your soul

 

For I am nothing

But powerful

As I lure you in

With a song

 

Hold onto the bow

But it won't save you 

Your final calling

Unreleased to freedom

Not Soon Forget

Folder: 
2018

She is

for better or worse

someone you will not soon forget.

She is trying to make me

someone like that too.

 

I stand in all her ways

I straighten my shoulders I cover my arms

I make my lips a muscle I know I can control

not like the mess the weeks after when I could still hear his footsteps under mine.

She makes me think in the good ways,

she keeps me from thinking the bad ways

it’s like I suddenly notice I have not thought about how much sleep I’m losing

any night I lie with her whispering.

 

When she asks a question I want to be able to answer without thinking

but thinking is not something I can leave by the roadside

especially when it comes to her

and as I walk by

she says

you thought I wouldn't notice that slaughterhouse inside your window.

You thought I wouldn’t notice how you were standing here with too many words

waiting to be pried open.

 

Oh, how I wish you wouldn’t notice.

 

How I wish I could make these memories only the past and not the present

but it is hard to pick up the pieces of yourself

and build them into something you never were.

The silence strains and bends and breaks

the distance more than a lifeline…

you are

someone I knew once.

California

Folder: 
Band Lyrics

ALBUM # 5 LYRICS

Track #1: California


Verse 1:
I’m ready to bury my secrets

If only for a chance on you.

This California weather

Has me falling for you.

 

Chorus:

Beaches in the winter,

Christmas in two mountains,

Snow on the mountains,

I want to kiss you tonight.

 

Verse 2:

Take my love,

Hold me tonight,

It’s not just the California weather

That has me falling for you.

 

Bridge:

It’s everything about you

That has me falling for you.

Yeah, it’s true love.

But, you got me singing

These songs of love to you.

 

Last-Chorus:

When the time comes,

I’ll find you.

Did you go faraway

Because you did not like me anymore?

I’m sorry it’s taken me so long

To realize it’s more than

The California weather

 

That has me loving you. 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

California weather symbolizes loving all sides to your significant other. Another "love" song that I started writing over a month ago but just finished today.

Solid

Folder: 
2018

All the tidal waves push past me.

I float off the ground

my steps are so heavy when there’s no one around

I have to keep making sure I am solid

 

I can’t stay rounded

when I’m forced into corners and suffocating

I smile at blank faces in the hallways

on days that I feel like a sixth grader

with nowhere to sit

and now here I am with my crooked teeth

expecting you all to believe me.

 

I hang the sun from my shoelaces

I say I say I say I still think the world is beautiful

I say I say I keep saying I’m fine

Repeat with me this punch line

we’ve all understood

when the hands creep in

and all the silence

comes knocking at our doors.

 

Before my blood is old and forgotten

I want to spill it glittering

onto your words and make me lighter,

feather enough to take flight.

 

And then our lips touch,

there are so many more places to sit,

so many audiences to follow my pen.

 

When my heart is bound to beat out of this living

I look out at the crowd

and they all have your smell,

your eyes,

your handwriting,

you touch me with hands that don’t sink through

and I am solid,

I am something,

I am yours,

we are home.

 

Now I am with you

and I won’t float off the ground anymore.

Our Song

Folder: 
Band Lyrics

Verse 1:

From coast to coast,

I still feel it in my bones.

Los Angeles to New York:
It’s time to move on.

 

Chorus:
While New York City is

Home in my bones….

Come on, babe:
Let’s start from here

 

Verse 2:

The call of the motherland

Of where I grew up:

These things connect us together.

It’s going to be a good life.

 

Bridge:

Can you help me

Find a way

To carry on again?

‘Cause Los Angeles is death to me.

 

Last-Chorus:

‘Cause the possibilities are endless.

We weren’t meant

To spend a lifetime waiting.

 

All I hear now is our song on the 101.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Song written in 2014. One of many. Dedicated to my New York friends. My Los Angeles friends have no idea where I've been, to be honest.
