No don’t get up, remain as you were.
Please carry on, don’t let me disturb the worst mistake that you could ever make.
And I know it hurts, but that’s the price that you pay.
That’s the cost for wanting more, for needing more, expect the best but prepare for the worst.

No don’t get up, remain as you were.
It’s just another race for another face to get his hand under your shirt.
You twist and turn, but it just won’t work. There will be more but this will always be first.

And the lights were dimmed, but I could see just fine.
No words were needed just the space between the lines.
And the lies that were told, awkward silence without rest,
It seemed to me to take forever to walk from one room to the next.

I wish life was a dream, and dreams were real life,
And I would tell you everyday how you were wrong and I was right.
But the sun is still up, shining down with its light,
To let us know that it’s much safer inside.
