you cannot live a worldYou cannot really fall in love until you fall outYou cannot really trust him or her if you feel no doubtThese days when we are in love we're normally just in likeYou cannot say you do not argue if you never shout.You cannot feel the pain of words if you cannot hearYou cannot say that you cry if you only shed one tearThese days we want attention for the pain we never knowYou cannot say that you are scared if you never fear.You cannot claim you have been wronged if you're never rightYou cannot lose your grip on things if you don't hold tightThese days we say we're lost when we were never even foundYou cannot say your life's cut short if it's not the height.You cannot really fly if you only have one wingYou cannot hate the bee if you did not feel the stingThese days we hate our lives even though we know we're blessedYou will not understand the world if you don't know a thing.
chess and Godbut when life throws the arrows,and we have to start dodging bullets,ducking heads,and our patterns are all askew,who does everyone turn to?God.or their idea of God,their rendition of God.everyone wants to go to Heaven,but no one wants to die.they play life like chess;everyone is the victim.God shows no sympathyfor little white lies.
Friends.I'm upset when you're gone,But lonely when your here.I try to explain my feelings,But then I feel fear.I'm afraid to tell youWhat I think when you're away.I don't want to be around you,But I want you to stay.You're my best friend,You know me like the back of your hand.The fact that I know nothing about you,I honestly can't stand.But this thing we're doing;Can we just give up?Us ignoring each other?Don't you know that is sucks?We keep going back and forth,Being friends, then not talking.And when I see you from time to time,We just keep walking.I want to be forgiven,But I won't apologize.I know you do, too,I can see it in your eyes.I want what we had.I want that again.Please, let's just stopAnd let's just be friends.
All I Have LeftYou are the ocean,You are the tide.You are what has kept me alive.You are my passion,You are my life.You are the reason that I fight.You are the earth,You are the ground,You are to who I am bound.You are the air,You are the sky,You are how I get by.You are my poison,You are my breath,And you are all I have left.
Better OffYou call me a traitor?Well, yeah, that's true;If a "traitor" is a person who sticks up for you.You call me a whore?Well, of course you would know.I rejected your boyfriend when he asked me out, though.You call me a bitch?Well, you're no fun.Though I stayed by your side since day one.So call me your names,Give me your best shot.Bring up the past,Give me all you've got.I may do what traitors, whores, and bitches do,But let's see how much better off I would be without you.

Your green isn't my go.I get sosuffocated when youwon't let mebreathe the air I know.You ask meto follow in yourfootsteps,but my feetknow where to go.and it's not in your dustyold corners,it's not the streetsyou nevercrossed.Maybe you didn't reachyour intersection becauseyour path was alwaysLost.
Ignored.The air is chilledThe world is stilledAnd all I can hearIs a ticking clock.I've mad myself numbSaid that it was dumbTo keep cryingIt had to stop.The computer is brightIt's the only lightI ever botheredTo turn on.I haven't smiledIn quite a whileI'm avoiding the thoughtThat you're gone.I've hurt and achedAnd I've tried to makeMyself happy thoughI'm sad to the core.This is what it's likeFor me at nightWhen you makeMe feel ignored.
