i died and came back to life june 21st.

she said she came from a broken home
her talents were wasted here
so she left town
she said 'thank you'
i said 'goodbye'
she's been wearing a broken halo
an finished circle
a line, we've all heard a thousand times

i'd wish i had the courage
to tell you exactly what you're passing up,
and enough courage to tell you,
that i'm sorry if im making you feel bad.
once i leave, and you still don't mind
my tears. i'd think of you,
and wish that i would have slit my throat
a long time ago to save myself
from the pain that comes from within.

i closed my eyes. opened my mouth.
you tell me i act so much older than i am
i told you to taste the rain.
you opened your mouth. and said
'it tastes like my lips.'
i sighed and stayed up that night
you painted yourself a smile
and i painted something as unreal

i'd wish i had the courage.
to tell you exactly what you're passing up.
and enough courage to tell you.
that i'm sorry if im making you feel bad.
once i leave, and you still don't mind.
my tears. i'd think of you.
and wish that i would have slit my throat.
a long time ago to save myself.
from the pain that comes from within.

i've been raped of all hope
of smiling in the dark with you
walking away from citys
cigarettes lit blue.........
when people write you letters,
you don't respond in a note.
when i tell you i love you.
i know you'll say... 'i dont'
