I thought you were the way
And so bright
But you were in it
Sometimes we get distracted. The attention is nice. Something good and exciting. Love is intoxicating. I went on so many benders.
On the wagon and off again —I was never afraid of the deep end
But then your feelings deepened
When the suffocation began from a lack of oxygen I went back under.
Submerged in memories of the beginning I fought to grow gills
But I’m past that phase
The distraction and haze
Love doesn’t work that way babe.
When i realized it was time to quit swimming I was capable of MY beginning. Get out of the water before I’m a tar pit of emotional bones.
You got in the way and became it.
the wrong way
A one way street to anything but serene
You told me you’d stay
Well I’m sorry.
I must go
Because you’re in my way
Sometimes we grow past things
And you look so much shorter now.
You are too bright
Too bright for where you choose to stay
But by doing that, you’re the brightest thing in orbit
Personally I can’t. That’s lazy. I have been the brightest light in so many lives.
I did it by changing skies.
Higher and higher to new heights
Nothing but thrills
I can’t stay
I refuse to play
I’m workin on me today
Nothing left to say
But I will go around when you don’t move out of my way.
