Reflections

Put on your heavy coat I saw that the boat
was afloat. Watching the birds sway within the
wind as they descended to hit the ocean.

It’s clearer than my own reflection.
Yeah, I know that’s my own image.
Watching it being damaged as it once was.

Shivering in the cold as the
breeze went right through me.
My cotton candied eyes were fixated
on the ocean as it rippled.

I could see my past finally leaving me.
Just please, put on your heavy coat.
We could watch the everglades.

We walked a million times and
together sharper than the image on
this crappy piece of paper.

You’re my one and only love.
Stop copying me it’s just making matters worse.
No of course it could just be my mind taking over.

It’s clearer than my own reflection.
Yeah, I know that’s my own image.
The sun setting finally revealed who I really am.

As we talked I could feel the tensions rising
and the waves were becoming much larger.
You could just ditch me and leave me just like the
other guys.

Reaching towards the sky so that I can
finally get my hopes and dreams.

Try to leave the past but
now I just can’t stop the nightmares.
You held the knife by my throat
and the boat was shaking.

I could feel my own tears falling and
the sound just echoed between he and
I.

You made me feel worse than I ever did before.

We walked a million times and
together sharper than the image on
this crappy piece of paper.

I felt the need to rip that image
out of my head. You’re the worst
mistake I’ve ever had.

Just please, please let me go.
You’re vivacious when you see other women.
My heart was finally broken when you turned
your back on me.

I’ll be running away from you now.
I felt the need to just end it with you.

It’s clearer than my own reflection.
Yeah, I know that’s my own image.
You destroyed my reality and made it your own.

I closed my eyes hoping that you would just
disappear but the world just won’t erase you.
You’re the runt of the litter and hold my tongue
as you just try to cut it off.

I bit it hard so that you would bleed and walk
away.

We walked a million times and
together we just fell apart watching
the pieces fall in the water.
