Habits

I could wait till you said yes
I could lie to the world
About how you turned me down 

The first time i reached out.
 

I could take my world n turn 
Turn it upside down
And hold my breath till you straighten
Straighten my world out.
  

And I'll keep holding to the last bit of you
And go about my days like you're gone.

I could never look at you straight in the eye,
Cuz waves and walls kept crushing my mind.
But over the years I got used to your sounds,
Now you're a habit I cant get around.



I could spend all my days
Wandering through the trees
Picking blades of grass
Feeling incomplete.

I could be listening to a song
That reminded me of you
But I wouldn't tell a soul
That I was feeling blue.

And I'll keep holding to the last bit of you
And go about my days like you're gone.


I could never look at you straight in the eye,
Cuz waves and walls kept crushing my mind.
But over the years I got used to your sounds,
Now you're a habit I cant get around.

Distance

Overboard and yet unfettered,
Was there reason to drown?

Floating on the surface and yet an urge to drown
Was there any reason to swim?

He wondered if she could hear his signals.
She thought he was still at the other end of the ship.
He saw the rush in her eyes.
She thought her touch had seemed hesitant.
He needed to be certain.
She needed a reason.

Who would voice their emotions?

Bound souls, cast away,
Traveling worlds.
In touch with reality
Out of touch with the surreal.
And so the unsteadiness,
Even though the weather was calm.
Wondering about the next step to take,
Wondering about the next words to say.
