SUMMER AND WINTER

He told me I was different when we first met

He trusted me with everything and told me every secret

But suspicions arose and darkened our minds

And I knew we were running out of time

His version doesn’t match mine on what’s right

And finally it happened – exploding the night

He cries

“I never wanted goodbye,

But all these falls, slams to the floor

I can’t take it anymore.”

So now he watches me through a stony silence

Both sides of communication lost through unmoving defiance

He won’t speak to me- not a single word

He claims he tried to say something but I just never heard

Sometimes it seems like we’re moving closer but he just breaks away

And I should’ve known something so good could never stay

Winter girls aren’t made for heat

Summer boys aren’t made to freeze

He told me that he loved me but I just abused the way he feels

He gave me everything and I would just lie and steal

Summer and winter, heat and cold

Golden wishes and silver dreams that were never told

Light and dark and ice and fire

And two hearts run off tracks by reckless desire

And now there’s an endless ocean between him and I

And what was left of love has withered and died

And now his eyes are on me

Begging to set him free

So I turn away from his flames and walk back to the snow

Breathe  in the thin air and finally let him go

OPEN MINDED

tips-to-become-an-open-minded-personFriday night, blowout party, everybody knows my name

And I’ve never met him before, but I’m glad he came

Love at first sight- when he talks to me I feel my heart banging in my chest

I give him my name and my number, and then I let him do the rest

And this is just what I need after a long hard week

This is so like a movie, I can hear the music when he speaks

“I can never sit still, I hate TV and I’m always late

But I’ve got a free night tomorrow, can we call it a date?”

And life is tough, but we’ve got all night

To dance our hearts out and make it all alright

And live like you’re dying tomorrow, blast your favorite song

Toss away all your worries and sing along

And as I watch him move I hope tonight never ends

All the other girls are on him, and for now we’re just friends

And I don’t know if he’ll ever remember my number or if he’ll call

But just a simple friendship’s so much better than nothing at all

And I have no idea where this friendship’s going to go

But I’m open minded to anything- just so you know

And I love the way his eyes light up when he laughs

I’d bet everything that after one taste I would never go back

And I only want to get out, and I just want to breathe

And the way he looks at me makes it all pretty clear to me

And sometimes life hurts, but it’ll be okay

‘Cause we got all of tonight to wash off yesterday

And who knows what kind of problems tomorrow’s gonna bring?

But just stay open minded and you can do anything

SAY IT

Fading in and out of focus

Is a heart- framed image of us

This was never what we wanted it to be

I’m slipping in and out of reality

As we keep trying to be strong

And I’m struggling to hold on

All of these secrets between us are just growing deeper

And the hill we’re falling down is just growing steeper

And every night I cry

Because it’s not long until one of us says good- bye

Memories falling down with the rain,

Voices calling- nothing but pain,

What happened to all the “I love you’s?”

We’re trapped in a cage- what do we do?

We have the dynamite- it just needs to be lit

One of us just needs to say it

Making wishes on shooting stars and four leaf clovers

Because both of us already know that it’s over

This is torture at it’s worst

Who’s going to say it first?

We’re done- we both already know

But neither of us are brave enough to let go

I don’t really know what we’re both scared of

Maybe it’s being wrong when we thought is was love

We were wrong about that because

This isn’t love-

It never was

We’re both equally the ones to blame

And this whole thing is driving me insane

Like the colors of a shattered stained glass window

Sooner or later we have to let go

If I take this any longer I swear I’ll die

Because one of us finally needs to say good- bye
