How Wrong Was I?

I wish I could commit to you
But she left me with commitment issues
So, I chose your love to misuse
Because I thought I couldn’t miss you
How wrong was I?

I thought it was meant to be one-night
That I could make last over time
As if I can justify my treatment, like
I don’t know how to treat you right
How wrong was I?

I never could keep my hands off you
Now I see his arm wrapped around you
Watch the difference when he looks at you
All I saw was an object, for me to screw
How wrong was I?

You gave up quick
I guess we all grow tired waiting to commit
I feel like love is rarely worth the risk
But you took a chance on less than perfect
How wrong was I?

The One

I’m the one, she regrets
The one she wishes she could forget
For all the tears, I made her taste
Not once was I as brave.

I’m the one, time forgot
One night when the music stopped
As we danced off into the night  
Awoke and said our goodbyes.

I’m the one, who broke her heart
Lead her on and watched her drift pass
Cry for the man, she falsely believed
When she believed in me.

I’m the one, she won’t accept
The greatest of friends but never the best
Because together isn’t better than apart
When she won’t give me her heart

I’m the one, who needs a second
To tell you I’ve finally learnt my lesson
For all these women, I let live and let die
For all your sins, you’ll never forget mine

 

Found

I found you
When I lost the god,
everyone seeks.

I heard you
When I’d forgot
which words to speak.

I saw us
With my eyes ripped
from my skull.

Found my grip
When my hands slipped  
and lost all control.

You found me
When I couldn’t climb,
back up those rockslides.

You spoke
At a moment in time,
When I’d lost all fight.

You gave yourself
When I had nothing left
to hold on to.

We have it all,
You’ve given me strength,
and everything to lose.

 

Heard

Everyone’s out, searching for love
Some fall from their branch of lust
Quick to forgive with a broken trust
Thinking clear is something no one does
So, we’re prone to stupid decisions
Hoping she listens, hope he isn’t drinking
This hope we’re given, creating distance
Because nobodies speaking to listen
Just to be heard

No one enjoys the greener grass
In love, you long to be single
Mingling, you wish you weren’t apart
Anything to make time pass, fly past
Waiting on a one-night stand to fix us
Then blame it all on the one we picked up
Stupidly thinking they could fix us
When they’re just like us, scared to love
With a need to be heard

 

Am I Bored?

Am I bored or am I alone?
Or am I bored of being on my own
Twiddling toes, with nowhere to go
No one to phone in an empty home

Why are so many days like these?
Wondering where my friends might be
Am I friendly, do they need friends like me
Questioning whether we’re meant to be

Is this what we claim it is?
Can we be sure enough to answer this
When living apart is the hardest bit
And it hurts more when your hearts in it

If I close my eyes will it look the same?
Would it hurt less if I took the blame
Will I still remember the pain?
If I’m ever able to forget your name
