The thing about great friends
Is that they bring out the best in you
They seek out your essence
Not only do they accept all they find
But they settle for nothing less.
Power, something so many people crave
But at what expense
Although it gives the freedom to choose,
With a propensity for abuse and corruption
Is it really worth it?
It can be hoarded by the mighty
Or stolen from the innocent
Turning pacifists into militants
And freedom fighters into tyrants
Causing good intentions to turn to crisis
Leaving many unfortunate souls lifeless
Because the ones who have it indulge in their vices
I’ll ask again
How worth it is it?
In a world without an end or beginning,
My sweet little rose tried so hard just to blend in.
She’s been walking through life looking for a connection.
She pretends to be tough but she’s really codependent.
All she ever really wanted was some sort of affection.
Forced to take life in so many directions.
She became cold and so unforgiving.
She needs me to fix her but it’s always too much.
I gave her everything I had but it was never enough.
My baby girl always calls me because she scared to be loved.
She wants me to soothe her with my rhetoric,
But I can’t bear to tell her that my love will only ever be synthetic.
It will fade like the sand in an hour glass.
And when it does it will only bring out our immense contrast.
Girl I’m so conflicted
it’s been so long since we’ve kicked it.
But babe your really expensive,
I’m not sure if I’m still with it
You got on a plane and went back to your hometown,
And ever since then I’ve been trying to track you down.
Wood floors in your SoHo Apartment.
Good girl gone bad, I wonder how it started
Every week in July you would pick up the call.
Then I would race my way by past Webster Hall.
I would have been the Tom Cruise to Katie Holmes,
But what you really wanted was to be alone.
Going down the path of Veronica Lake.
But one good conversation is all it would take.
On second thought your more like Sophia Loren,
Una bella ragazza che è motto bello.
And no baby girl I didn’t mean to offend,
I just didn’t think that this is how it would end.
Last time we met you stared into my eyes so hopelessly
And ever since then I’ve just been walking around woefully.
The righteous God came to take me down
Empty Cathedral roars with a silent sound
But the Devil sprung out to drag me around
He clenched my skin and took me straight to the ground
I’ve been ripped of my graceless heart
The demons circle round to tear it apart
Consumed by the darkness I’ve become undone
But the Angels fought hard to help me restart
They held so tight I had no place to run
The only one that can save me now
Is desperately trying to hide in the crowd
As God reached out and yelled my name
I rose like a Phoenix soaring through the flames
But with sinners and saints roaming all through town
Uneasy remains the head that wears the crown
God came up and said it’s your turn now
And as I pierced into her golden eyes
I was struck by a light that made me question life
In her arms I felt so soft and sweet
One million miles away from the terrors of the night
No more dragging around my faded fickle feet
I will no longer be ruled by what’s in the deep
Dear Katherine, the unicorn queen
You did it well, yes you played your part
I know it’s quite rude but it’s not my fault I stole your heart
You brought your love baby and I brought my pain
Next time you come over to stay
I’ll own your body like my names is Christian Gray
All the wrongs you committed, You would dance to my songs on the minute
Girl I warned you about my type but you didn’t listen to the hype
You fell into a plight and sunshine I know it isn’t right
You patiently waited for me on the corner of Vandam
Because you wanted me to apologize for the time I broke your hand
I didn’t want to hurt you, but I know I caused some shame
To call what we had love would be a crime against the masses
But babe I know your heart will heal as long as time passes
Been having a hard time dealing with pain
Just hear me out girl, only one exchange
Talk to me please I’m sending postcards from the edge
I was just calling because I’m feeling smitten
I need you right now, are you down to listen
I would take a whisper if that’s all that was given
I know I’ve been acting strange
Just hear me out and I’ll explain
You’re my own special kind of drug
But I know being locked in my mind isn’t enough
Been holding on to you because I can never let you go
I’m consumed with sorrow because I can tell
Your heart is somewhere else
On those cold lonely winter nights,
You’re trapped in my heart
You’ve got the best of me, my sweet counterpart
You’re the perfect pearl
You make me feel like I own the world
The days pass by on this journey we call life.
Which all in all is just one grand unrepeatable experiment.
I have just created my masterpiece
And I know it will be criticized incessantly.
Since it is a fact that we will all eventually die,
Regardless of what people say,
I will proudly affirm “but on that day I lived”.
