When the Sky Falls Down (song)

I posted this song I wrote a while ago, but then hid it….. when I looked for it recently, it had lost its online presence, so here I am posting it again probably a year or so later 🙂  I hope you enjoy it.

 

Lyrics:

Lookin’ out at the stormy sky
I thought of you and who you used to be
Lookin’ out, I thought I’d spy
a hint of truth but no blue can be seen

When the sky falls down around us
When the sky falls down
When the sky falls down around us
Down around, down around

Workin’ out the miles to go
Not far from the raining pain of where you are
working out the flies below
wing speed all delayed to keep up with you, Sir

and when the sky falls down around
we’ll be the eye of the storm
when the sky falls down around
we’ll be the eye of the storm

Complicated if you don’t even know
the simple truth, 37 show
and though it’s clear as day here
thought it’s clear as day

Complicated, you don’t even know
the simple truth in a one-man show
it’s clear, as day here, but I know
you’re still in dark

still in dark

looking out at the stormy sky
I thought of you and who you came to be
looking out, I thought I’d spy
a way to you but truth is, hard to eat
not so sweet, as memory
not so sweet, as memory
not so sweet, as memory
not so sweet

What Do I Want To Be?

.
.
you know, I could do it too:
hair parted, to the side
long, just long enough
maybe highlighted
face airbrushed with
foundation
concealer
powder
eyebrows darkened
plucked into perfect arches
eyes lined with dark brown
not black, that’s whorish
lashes lengthened, strengthened, darkened
teeth bleached, no gaps
posture perfect
like a ballerina
simple, elegant, regal in composure
.
and sometimes I want to be
.
but I think of everything I’d miss
if I couldn’t touch animals because they’re dirty
if I couldn’t watch bugs because they’re creepy
if I couldn’t skip in fields because I’m an adult
if I couldn’t sing aloud because I’m mature
if I couldn’t play in the sand because I’m not a child
if I couldn’t run in the sun because I’d get tanlines
if I couldn’t be who I am because it’s not who I should be
.
so I draw on my own picture a pirate’s eyepatch
a curly mustache
and a tasteful goatee
because it’s more fun
than striving for perfection
and I want people to know
that they can’t threaten me with shoulds
that people who love me
can also have fun around me
because I love when people smile
and I love even more when it’s because of me
that’s the me I want to be
.

“Fall For You” — Secondhand Serenade


“Fall For You”

The best thing about tonight’s that we’re not fighting
Could it be that we have been this way before
I know you don’t think that I am trying
I know you’re wearing thin down to the core

But hold your breath
Because tonight will be the night that I will fall for you
Over again
Don’t make me change my mind
Or I won’t live to see another day
I swear it’s true
Because a girl like you is impossible to find
You’re impossible to find

This is not what I intended
I always swore to you I’d never fall apart
You always thought that I was stronger
I may have failed
But I have loved you from the start
Oh

But hold your breath
Because tonight will be the night that I will fall for you
Over again
Don’t make me change my mind
Or I won’t live to see another day
I swear it’s true
Because a girl like you is impossible to find
It’s impossible

So breathe in so deep
Breathe me in
I’m yours to keep
And hold onto your words
Cause talk is cheap
And remember me tonight
When you’re asleep

Because tonight will be the night that I will fall for you
Over again
Don’t make me change my mind
Or I won’t live to see another day
I swear it’s true
Because a girl like you is impossible to find
Tonight will be the night that I will fall for you
Over again
Don’t make me change my mind
Or I won’t live to see another day
I swear it’s true
Because a girl like you is impossible to find
You’re impossible to find

“Breathe You In” — Stabbing Westward

Tomorrow came too soon
I barely made it through today
Still empty inside
I guess nothing’s really changed
I’m still afraid to feel
‘Cause I cannot take the pain
I’m still afraid to feel
Afraid to lose someone again
I wish that somehow
I could leave
My past behind
My fears behind
If I could only breathe you in
Every drop of you
I guess it’s time to face the truth
And admit my past mistakes
Come to terms with all that’s wrong with me
And all the things I’ll never be
Why am I afraid to feel?
Afraid of what is true?
Why am I afraid to feel?
When all I really want is you?
To taste your skin
To share your thoughts
Would never be enough for me
