Steal My Voice

Folder: 
2016

I’ve always wanted to write

a song about a perfect world

but I don’t want to replace reality

 

I’ve always wanted to sing

a rhyme about a you-and-I

that would explode shooting stars

 

I’ve always wanted to love

in a life that mirrors my dreams

but now I sit and think too hard

 

And in a beautiful world I would stop and stare

And in my dream life you would take my hand

And in a perfect song you would steal my voice

And the song would go like this

 

I’ve always wanted to become

everything I imagine,

everything I bleed on paper

 

I’ve always wanted to run

free of the strings binding me lonely

tearing me apart

 

I’ve always wanted to pretend

we’re everything I wished we’d be

so I cry over shavings you toss me

 

But in a beautiful world I would catch you ten times

And in my dream life you would chase after me

And in a perfect song you would steal my voice

And the song would go like this

 

And you know you’ll never understand

why you can make me cry

just reaching half a chance at you

 

When you steal my breath

you steal my song

but it still finds a way to pour out of me

 

because you’ve stolen the words

that belong to you

as I write them from inside your soul

 

And in a beautiful world I would make you believe

And in my dream life you would be able to fix me

And in a perfect song you would steal my voice

And the song would go like this
