It's such a shame to see you wasting
Your talent instead of chasing
The dreams that you had
Before you slipped back towards the past

How the hell can you stand to face it
The mirror and your reflection
The bags underneath of your eyes
From all of the stressing

and no, you can't live a quiet life
It doesn't even matter how, hard it is you try
Its absurd, to think I could be your wife
Eternally bound as life just passes us by

The longer that you wait
the worse its going to get
I turn my back to walk the other way
Without any hesitation you just look at me and say….

Every body is moving at a rate I’m unaccustomed to
They say every man is his own worst enemy

Lets move to the country
A little house where you can love me
We’ll watch the sun rise and set
And write each other poetry

It will be so beautiful
To say the least
Often times I wonder if I love you more than you love me

But then I realize,
You wouldn’t be here
At all if you didn’t feel the same

I really hate to say this
But I think we’re on two different pages
I can’t stay forever
You know without you I’d die

Lets try not to get to comfy
Being together
Why? Don’t you love me?
I’ve literally told you hundreds of times

When its all said and done my dear
I can promise you
You won’t want me here

Sorry I, don’t understand
Don’t leave me hanging here
