BEST AT THIS GAME

He doesn’t like when I’m out all night

He doesn’t like when I play pretend

He doesn’t like it when I get into fights

Says it’s not the way to go with friends

 

She just wants to mess with me

She doesn’t even really give it any thought

I swear to god that girl is crazy

And I’m just waiting to get caught

 

He says he can trust me

He doesn’t know the half of what I’ve done

And I keep trying to cover it up so he won’t see

But the landslide’s already begun

 

I know there’s something she’s not saying

I can see it in her eyes

But it’s her game and she’s the best at playing

She’s a pro at weaving her secrets in with lies

 

He’s just like all the rest

With summer dancing in his hands

And though he pushes my secrets to the test

I know he wouldn’t understand

 

I can’t tell when she’s faking ’cause she keeps rocking the boat

Anything you’ll say “don’t” to she’ll do

Crash it, burn it, blow a kiss and leave a note

Just because you told her not to

 

They all say they can instantly trust me

They don’t know that I’m a backstabbing little fox

It takes them a whiles to finally see

And by then they’re already under my lock

 

She’s just in my friend zone

But I know she’s out to win

She’s the X of the equation that I can’t get alone

Clever little vixen

She carries all the secrets

And she balances the lines

She buries all her regrets

And she’ll get you every time

But I’m learning all her tricks

The girl under the masks is so tired within

I know her illusions aren’t really magic

And I know this time I’ll win

GLASS

When you first fell for me you said it was because of the glass

glittering heart in my chest that no one else has

So clear and so open and so crystal and clean

The brightest heart that you’d ever seen

But the thing is that glass is so easy to break

All you need is one tiny mistake

You figured that the shine was all that mattered

You didn’t realize when it slipped from your hands it would shatter

And when you saw just what you’d done

You tried to stop the breaking that had already begun

You tried to put back together the pieces and they cut you deep

And you grew frustrated and tired as I made you bleed

And you finally gave up and walked away

Because the price was too much to pay

Hearts are expensive and one of a kind

And trying to fix the old one drove you out of your mind

So finally you reached the end of your rope

Decided I was all out of hope

Moved on with someone you thought would be stronger

But you’ll break them soon- just a little bit longer

You haven’t been able to take your words back so far

Because they’ve already left thick red scars

Just like an old photo where the color’s started to fade

As you try to put back together the mess that you made

And I

Don’t cry

I don’t say a word

Silence is something that can be heard

Silver, gold, even diamond

You’ll find a way to get to them

Because your own heart is made of stone

It’s chained up and frozen and locked all alone

But it can give too- little by little

Tiny fractures branching out from the middle

And it will happen one day- and I’m warning you

Glass hearts will break- but stone one’s will too

FALL FOR YOU

I hate you

I love you

More than I ever knew

Not what I intended to do

Played with fire and I got burned

But sometimes pain’s the way to learn

Messed around with the way people felt

And felt the impact of what I’d dealt

I’m calm

I’m insane

You’re storm of silence

With that look of defiance

Like gazing through ice

I should’ve thought twice

Play with emotions and they’ll bite you back

Faking it gets you knocked clean off the tracks

Get away from me

I  want you

It’s a roller coaster ride

Turning tables and changing sides

I can’t breathe but I still don’t

Understand why I won’t.

I thought I was clever conjuring my lies

Dancing you on strings and controlling your ties

Never want to see you

I miss you

It’s crazy I know

This confusion, this chaos about letting go

Just one little match I set the forest on fire

Just one little act I set us burning down with desire

It’s always night now and everything’s blue

Would you believe it if I really felt something with you?

I can’t stand you

I need you

Some parts weren’t an act at all

Because I really did fall

For you

Thought you knew

That part wasn’t a lie

I know it’s too late to apologize

But before you leave me

I just want to say I’m sorry

BREAK YOU RIGHT 

 

I just sang a song about love that I don’t believe in

When we broke apart we never broke even

And I watch you with her and I watch you in pain

But you won’t admit for the world that you feel the same

But I’ll swallow my pride and I’ll take the blow

Because I think deep down both of us know

She’s not gonna tear you apart whenever you fight

And I promise now she’ll never break you right

And what am I supposed to do?

What I always needed was always you

What do you want me to say

When I dream of you every day?

And how can you not want things back the way they were

‘Cause I can see you’re faking a smile with her

And you say I’m crossing a line

But I see you watching me when it should be her time

And you now say anything you wanted

But the look in your eyes says you’ll always be haunted

And she’s never met a boy like you

Bet she can’t break you the way I do

She can’t make you smile for real

She can’t guess the way you feel

She doesn’t know your favorite songs

And you don’t both laugh and sing along

She doesn’t know your hopes and dreams

How you’re so much more than what you may seem

She can’t make you fall in love

Can’t leave you looking for shooting stars above

And I bet if worst came to worst

If she left you it wouldn’t even hurt

And I once upon a time you knew

That I was the perfect girl for you

And if you have a broken feeling in your chest

That burst inside when I left

Then that means that you’re not free

It means you’re still in love with me

And trust me it’s the little things that give it away

The way that I can see you’re hurting but you tell her you’re okay

So don’t say goodnight

‘Cause she’s not gonna break you right

MAGIC

105812_7429_7Mirrors and smoke

People in disguise

Weights and ropes

It’s all just a lie

Pulling people apart

I could wave my hand

When they draw near

And they don’t understand

What makes them disappear

Along with their broken hearts

Wires and trapdoors

Spring a surprise

They beg for more

With wide eyes

Smile, close your eyes, make a wish

Use what I learned from last time

Deck of cards, one try and I’ve got the ace

They think I can read their minds

Watch the look on their face

As they vanish

Play the cards

Watch them cry

As they fall hard

As I say goodbye

Oh so tragic

Smoke thickens and mirrors break

Rabbits disappear

As they realize their mistake

Trapped under a spell of fear

They blame it on magic

But none of my tricks

Would work on you

Wands turned to sticks

And without wires I flew

It’s beyond anything I know

You see through me like I’m clear

I can’t seem to understand this

Whenever you come near

Is this what love is?

I can’t figure out how this should go

I don’t know if I want this to have a conclusion

Because with you I can finally breathe

You and I, we’re not just another illusion

And I think you could be happy with me

And you know when I’m with you

Words come without rehearsed lines

I don’t know what it is that you do

But I think it really is magic this time
