tryna fade away
kill the blues and greys
splash my ink
line my drinks
learn to breathe without hurting

if it’s me that you‘re wanting
i don’t know her
never seen her
just the me she’s asserting

tryna find self
praying the vodka sends help
looked behind the smoke screen
made friends with my demons
turns out they’re all fakes
now i can’t trust no one else

don’t hide your truth
let it speak true
let it free you

told you i’m the one
even in the dark
i see you

told you we’re the chosen
i’ll be your sun
since your heart is frozen

you’re both of us
like our souls were woven
i can be your solace
you can be beholden

told you i’m the one
even in the dark
i’m golden

For Me

focus all your focus on me
grab all your lenses
turn them on me
if i dropped my smile
would you catch it for me

you love life
but do you love it for me
do you love me for me
darling are you living for me
breathing for me

drove you to the edge
are you falling for me

if i’m ever lost
are you coming for me
tell me now
that’s the darkness
coming for me

i was looking for answers
when i found you
can i question your answers
can i come through

slide into lace and
slide through
we can dance all night
three, one, two
waste our days
if you want to

we are the free few
baby if i leave
would you come too
i know a couple places
we can run to
heavens and clouds
we can run through

stay a while
we’re waves
not flames
we won’t die
seeing far and wide
like eagle eyes

stay alive
after night
in the afterlife
after you and i
there’s you and us
the sweetest rush
and the aftermath

that’s paradise
seen it hanging in your eyes
like the moon
you’re the influence
i’m under now
sailing the tide
i don’t like chasers
but you can hunt me down
that’s your canopy
take me down
your love’s electric
strike me now

and i don’t want gold or roses
just the bliss we’ve found
and you don’t want the world
i’m your planet
spin me round

Spill Ink

IMG_2481

and i found beauty in the dark
while riding the silence
and i did spill ink
watched it blend with the darkness
saw eye to eye with the storm
as the thunder raged on

walking with nightmares
in the daytime
and even when sun comes
it’s still nighttime
saw the corpse of my innocence
at the edge of my vision
yes, my sanity
needs some revision
