Let It Go

Don’t take this personal
But why did you have to make it personal?
It was nice catching up
It was nice to know you were doing well
After all these years
Sure there was a history
But history can’t be changed
Why did you have to make it personal?

Don’t take this wrong
But why did you have to make it all wrong?
Fantasies are realities
That get blown all out of proportion
After all these years
Why are you still hanging on
To a fantasy of who I am?
Why did you have to make it all wrong?

Let it go….

What I Can’t Keep

Thinking too much
Delving too deep
Wanting to touch
Needing to sleep

Tonight the cactus is my dearest friend
Not much good for giving advice
But good for easing the turmoil inside
Put the needle in the groove and let it jam
In my heart the story will end
A sordid story of men and mice
Everything to lose and nothing to hide
Nothing to gain by you knowing who I am

Drinking too much
Diving too deep
So out of touch
Don’t say a peep

Tomorrow my head is sure to pound
Sometimes that’s the price to be paid
For yesterday’s long-buried memories
The ones that are destined to bury you alive
Don’t say a word or try to make a sound
Even the fearless sometimes feel afraid
Confronting what the conscience sees
Knowing it can’t attain what the heart strives

Weeping too much
Sinking too deep
Wanting to touch
What I can’t keep

Flawed

Don’t for a minute think it would’ve been better
I’m flawed just as much as the rest of the world
I don’t want you to look into my eyes
I don’t want you to hear my bittersweet sighs
I don’t want you to think I’m anything more
Than someone who used to love you
And I can’t love you anymore

Don’t for a second wonder what it would be like
In a world where different decisions were made
I don’t want you to see behind the mask
I don’t want to hear the questions you would ask
I don’t want you to be able to see my flaws
And there are so many for you to see
But I want you to love me because

I dont know how to love you anymore
Not like I loved you before
I dont know how to love you anymore
But I still want you to love me
Just like you loved me before

Because I’m flawed
Just as much as the rest of the world

Waiting Anyway

Waiting patiently for the phone to ring
Waiting for what I know will never happen
Waiting anyway

In the dead of the night
I’m all alone with nothing but my thoughts
There’s no meaning to what’s left over
It’s gone forever and I know it
It’s gone forever
Move on
Easier said than done
I made my bed and now I lie in it
Find a tissue and cry in it
Then get over it
And move on
Easier said than done
When I’m waiting patiently
For the phone to ring
Waiting for what I know will never happen
I’ll wait anyway

If there’s the slightest shred of hope
The smallest inkling of possibility
I have to wait and see
It could happen eventually
Throw a drowning man a rope

Waiting patiently for the phone to ring
Even though I know there’s no possibility
I still need to believe there’s a chance

Just the slightest chance

Maintain Radio Silence

Transmissions from another time
Conversations of the clandestine kind
Repercussions to bear in mind

Maintain radio silence

Actions always yield reactions
Destroying the states of satisfaction
Within the affected factions

Maintain Radio silence

For what’s ventured, nothing’s gained
Innocent bystanders feeling the pain
With trust and love turned to disdain

Maintain radio silence

Devotion must always be key
Differentiate between want and need
What is, is what was meant to be

Maintain radio silence

The Yesterday I Threw Away

I remember it all like it was yesterday
The yesterday I threw away
I remember the friendship that grew into so much more
I remember how I felt when you opened the door
I remember my betrayal to her
I remember my deceit
I remember her emotional frailty
I remember your strength
I remember knowing you would carry on and survive
I remember thinking she would not
I remember the decision that had to be made
The yesterday I threw away
I remember turning left instead of right
I remember making love with you that night
I remember my betrayal to her
I remember the next morning
I remember saying goodbye to you
I remember how I felt when I closed the door
I remember it all like it was yesterday
The yesterday I threw away
