Lost boy

Four minutes past three

Is the perfect time to to lie with me

Tell me all your dreams and all

The friends that you had hoped to keep

Eight minutes past four

And you’re awake again

Spreading all the photos of your

Past life 

out across the bed

Seven a.m exact

And you’ve decided you will face the facts

That maybe all the things you want

In life are never coming back

But whatever time of day or night 

The sight of you fresh in my mind

It’s 9am, you rest your eyes

I whisper, “we’re not lost, you’re mine”.

Anybody Else But You

‚ÄčI remember when you were here with me

You’d trace the lines of your name into my skin
And even now I can hear your breathing
And even now I can hear you say

“I don’t see what anyone can see, in anybody else”
And when I asked if we’d burn
You said, you’d dance on the flames
But a year has passed, and I’m always the last
To say I’m sorry
And im still trying to find you, in somebody else

I remember when you said we were the greatest
And 6 years of friendship, led us to now
One drunken text, and one bitter ex
Can we say it was worth it?
Now I have to tell all our friends, it just wasn’t right

“I don’t see what anyone can see, in anybody else”
And when I asked if we’d burn
You said, you’d dance on the flames
But a year has passed, and I’m always the last
To say I’m sorry
And im still trying to find you, in somebody else

I still remember the day, you told me you loved me
I believed it then, and somehow, I still know it now
Even when your back is turned, and the rain is pouring
I’d still find my way, just to hear you say

“I don’t see what anyone can see, in anybody else”
And when I asked if we’d burn
You said, you’d dance on the flames
But a year has passed, and I’m always the last
To say I’m sorry
And im still trying to find you, in somebody else
