If I Can't Have You. .Her phone rings, it's the usual, "How have you been? It seems like forever. . "Reminisce on the past five years that they've known each otherShe sighs, "I'm getting married in three days,I've got things to do, I don't have time to waste."He sits in silence for a few moments then memories flood his eyes,She tries to calm him down but all he can do is cryInto the speaker, "All I've ever done I've done for you!You're my reason for all my work and I'd do,Anything to keep you in my lifeI know you thought I was kidding, but I wanted you to be my wife!"He just doesn't understand,"What does he got, that I don't have?I've got all the money in the world, you'll never lift a fingerI've got a nice car, it'll take you to whatever your destinationAnd I'll give you biggest house on the hillDecorate it as you wish, it's all yours if you willJust love me. . . like you love him"She shakes her head, "You're amazing, a very close friendBut I don't care about the house or the car that I'm
You Left One Thing BehindHeartaches and mistakesPave the sidewalks in this small townBruises and screamingBuilt the rooms of this cold houseSilence and smilesMask from everyone what you really feelBoxes and belongingsStacked in your car as you're leavingWindows and tears flowEyes that watch as you've had enough ofBeatings and bleedingEvery night when you thought I was sleepingEmpty words and promisesYou won't be back, I know thatEscape and think straightBut you left one thing behind,Me
I Don't Need YouI'm tired of you hiding behind these wordsWhy can't you say it to my face?Why can't you just end it like it's supposed to be endedAnd give me closure.If you can't accept me as I am,I will not changeNot for any of you.If you can't accept my pastI know that you will never be apart of my futureNot any of you.And I don't need you.If you can't be honest and tell me how you feelRight to my fucking faceThen you aren't worth my time.I was never the victim,I never looked for sympathy.I don't want any one to feel sorry for me.I tell you- the few people I thought were trueAnd you see what I get?Sure this problem may be little to youBut to me it's my head every secondPulsing and begging for me to acknowledge it.Now if you're the type of personThat ignores the truthThen I don't want you in my life.Not that it will matter much to you.
Relaxed or InsaneSubmerged in this bath of painI wince and try to ease it awayThe heat has somehow turned to iceAnd I can't chisel my way out this time.It seemed so wonderful at first-The cleanliness new and ever so striking,The water so inviting.What have I done? Everything was so perfectBut I had to over flow it,I can't imagine why I did it.
You Could Be the OneI've been exposed to a new world, for once I'm not aloneAnd listening to you sleep here next to me couldn't make me feel more at homeWhat I thought I didn't have you awoke in meIt's beating only for you, handle with care please.No one has ever done that and I don't think you understandHow I feel for you is beyond what I can comprehend.Somehow I trust you more than anyone elseEven though I have issues, you make me feel like myself,And I've never been able to show someone the real meYou accept me and I'm falling hard, but it doesn't bother meYou're different, everything I could have ever dreamed ofYet reality is combined with this one.You're my inspiration and what I look forward toThe one I wake up and go through the day for.All the people that say it won't last,Don't understand and it won't do anything but passBecause I'm here to stay and we will prove them wrongYou were molded for me, take me into your arms,All will be assured, never let me goAnd I believe that you
GardeningThe pests that once stole from this gardenHave retreated to somewhere as dark as themselves.I stand tall with hope and reach out to the cloud nineWrap it's beauty around me and I wear it with prideThe kind only you could have shown me.Out of all the crops you picked mine to care forWhich have been shriveled for quite some time.We're planting the seeds of rightThe devotion that we spread in the soil,and the tears of utter happiness that quenched its thirstWill grow into something truly striking.And we will watch in awe at what we created.Finally I'm most complete.
