This word was never meant to be eternal.
The faster we realize that the faster we can sit.
I gave up everything I had just to look at you,
And from the darkness of my room you looked back.

You said I’m the lamentations, the demarcation.
I’m the horse from the Never Ending Story right before he sinks into the swamp.
I’m the mother that just told her child for the fortieth time that Santa Clause is real.
Stop lying, stop trying to find truth where there is none.

You were a much needed sigh; a drawn out high.
If the company you keep is reflection of who you are I’m fine I think I’ll stay right here.
The wine I drink in your house harbors passions that I can’t soon forget.
Let’s face this, let’s pray that I will be cured.

I’m not trying (I am trying)
