Temporary

Draw Your Pen

Life’s too short. Life’s too short.

The time to pursue your dreams is right now.

Life’s too short. Life’s too short.

There’s no waiting. It’s time to go.

 

What’s wrong? What’s the matter?

Are you alright? Please talk to me, okay?

 

Did you lose your home again?

Are your parents disowning you?

I’m here for you only if you let me in.

 

I cannot guide you, but I will be along for the ride.

They cannot put strings on you forever

If you find the scissors to cut them.

Your passions are only for you to decide.

 

Life on Earth could end tomorrow so why the fuck are you wasting your time?

You were born for adventure so you might as well draw your pen.

 

Life’s too short. Life’s too short.

The time to pursue your dreams is right now.

Life’s too short. Life’s too short.

There’s no waiting. It’s time to go.

 

There’s one thing that you need to know;

It’s to always keep an open mind.

You will possess such beautiful magic

If you would only take a chance.

 

The universe is so much bigger than we realize.

The sun will not last forever. It’s just a fireball that can burn out.

Marine life is going extinct and it’s all our fault.

 

Life on Earth could end tomorrow so why the fuck are you wasting your time?

You were born for adventure so you might as well draw your pen.

 

Life’s too short. Life’s too short.

The time to pursue your dreams is right now.

Life’s too short. Life’s too short.

There’s no waiting. It’s time to go.

 

Temporary Love

Wistful memories of you seep into my mind as the tones of this song enter my ears. Once we were the drums of love, strumming for what seemed would be an eternity.
How wicked that this fairytale we once had is ending, when I once thought you'd be my prince charming forever.
Every morning you were the first breath I took, the first thing I saw, the first though that came into my mind, yet as the love you've given me has slipped away so has my memory of you.
I was once your prized posession, and now I'm your ragged doll. I'm torn, broken, and used under your hands- unsure of what love even means anymore.
I was never given that fateful, coveted chance, and now not only is my heart gone, but yours is torn as well. How could you love her when you were supposed to love me? How can you love her when I was supposed to be eternity?
Now with each glance I throw your way, I must remind myself it's not genuine. We were supposed to be a family, but now it's just a lie. We were once collaborated, but you exiled me from your world to bloom into the party animal you were destined to become.
You're a lustful beast I pity, yet I stand here with you heart: it's broken yet pretty. Pretty because I hope that I might be able to repair it.
I want you, I need you. This is your final chance, yet you push me away without noticing what little time you have.
My soul is beaten and bruised, and although what everyone sees in me is strength and courage, I'm dying faster than ever with the pain you deliver.
And now I beg you as I end my plea: what will it be: her, or me? My love will be pure like a diamond in the rough, and this is your last change so the decision will be tough. Tough nonetheless, but I promise you it's yours. So choose my love or my freedom, because if not I will never return.

Temporary

You won't cry
cause you've always known
that in the end
you'd be alone

so many moments
went to waste
now someones gone
You can't replace

Pain: it drives stick
and it goes so fast
takes you where you hate
but this kind doesn't last

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Because some pain won't last forever.
