Open Book

I’ll write you a letter that you’ll keep
Every time you read it you’ll think
“That’s so sweet”
But you’ll keep it in your pocket
The words will fade and stamp fall off it
Unreplied

You’ll write me a poem in your head
It’ll be the loveliest thing you’ve
Ever said
But you’ll never get to tell me
Verses lost forgotten empty
Never read

We never seem to be on the same page
You’re flipping through so fast these days
And if you ever stop to ask me how I’ve been
I’ll remember those times, you loved me then
Those times, you loved me then

I’ll sing you a song that you’ll love
It won’t be about us but you’ll
Wish it was
You’ll play it while you sleep
Falling so much more deeply
Than I can go

We never seem to be on the same page
You’re flipping through so fast these days
And if you ever stop and wonder how I’ve been
Just remember those good times, I loved you then
Those times, I loved you then

And I will learn to let you go
In these times you never know
What you’ll force the past to hold
And I will hold onto hope
But in these times you never know
So I will learn to let you go

I know it’s always hard to say goodbye
I’m just sorry I took so much of your time

Smoke Doesn’t Sting So Bad

Ya know a cigarette
Seems like a good idea when you’re 20 years in
With nowhere left to go
It’s a hopeless life
When you look around and you realize
We’ve made the same mistakes
Time and time again
But I’m still breaking-in this skin

You know a good night’s sleep
Seems like a good idea when you’re neck deep
But the demons don’t understand
Yeah, they’re cut throat
You either sink or you swim
Baby, I know
I don’t stand a chance
But I’m still breaking-in this skin

Somehow we’ve survived
This long
Somehow we’ve survived
This long
We’ve survived
This long, this long
And somehow we’ll survive
