Too Disappointed

[ 2 ] January 27, 2009

Too Disappointed
November 10th, 2003

Too scared to move forward
Impossible to go back
So I just sit here idle
Living my life like I do
Trying not to get too close to you
Cautious of your type
I know how it goes
Bringing back the pain that my heart knows

I can’t believe your promises
They sound so familiar
Promises are just disappointments in the making
And I…
Have been disappointed…
Too many times.

Timed Out

[ 0 ] January 26, 2009

The last of my new ones that I had written all on the same page. It’s all about time, always. Never enough time, sometimes too much time. Time spent. Time wasted… what time is it?…

Timed Out

Why waste time, if that’s all you got.

Why spend it and not value
The time spent
How much is it worth?
Enough to spend on me?

Time slips away
The clock races to my heartbeat
I lost track of days
Whether it’s day or night
Whether you spent enough of that time
With me.

Starting Line

[ 0 ] January 26, 2009

Another new one, just kind of writing for writing.

Starting Line

Why start at the top
If you never plan to finish
Why start at the bottom
When you’ll never get to the top
What’s the point in being in the middle
You’ll get lost in the crowd
And never move up or down.
What’s the point
In starting at all?

Pleasure P Rock Bottom Lyrics

[ 0 ] January 26, 2009

This is a song you definitely need to go download. I’ve got it on repeat. The verse at the end flows really nicely.

Pleasure P featuring Lil Wayne

This Is Gonna Feel Real Nice
I Got My Swagga Back On This One
Now This Ones Goin Out To
All The Fellas That Done
F**ked Up
They Relationship With They
Old Lady Thinking
This Was A Game
Now You Done Walked Into That Bar
Ordered One Drink
One Drink Done
Turned Into Three
Three Done Turned Into Ten
Now You Lying On That Bathroom Flo
Askin Yoself What Happen
Im Wit You
Im Wit You

Never Knew Just What I Had
Then Not Have Now I’m Stuck
With This Habit Singing Drunk
Screamin Damnit Girl Why
Why’d It Take For You
To Free Up Out My Life
Before I Look Myself In The Mirror
(Singing Why Why Why Why Why)
OOh Baby xxx So Good Lately
Its Been To Crazy
Its Been Two Days Since
Ya Left Me
OOh Baby I Miss You Baby
And Darling I Can’t Take It

I Done Hit Rock Bottom Over You
Girl I’m Beggin And Pleadin
Gotta Nxxxx Feelin You
Downin Them Liquor Bottles Got Problems
I Done Hit Rock Bottom Over You
And I’m Missin Them Kisses
The Way Your Body Just Glistens
When Your In The Shower
Just Listen
I Done Hit Rock Bottom Over (You You You)
And I Can’t Just Hit Rock Bottom (Over You You You Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah)

Now I’m In These Streets
Just Tryna Figure Out
Just How The F**k I’m Gonna
Get My Baby Back Back Right Now
An I’m Thinkin Baby If I Send
Some Flowers Or Some Candy
Sing A Lullaby
(Hell Nah That Ain’t Go Work)
And I Know This Sounds Crazy
But I Ain’t Givin Up
Darlin You Gotta Understand
I Was Off The Chain

And I’m Missin Them Kisses
The Way Your Body Just Glistens
When Your In The Shower
Just Listen
I Done Hit Rock Bottom Over (You You You)
And I Cant Just Hit Rock Bottom (Over You You You Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah)

When We Hooked Up
We Sat Down Made An Agreement
We Vowed That We Would Always Be
Together Through Whatever
We Say That No One Would Eva
Come Between Us
Said We Would Never Ever Leave Us
That Was A While Ago
But It’s Like Lately
It Feels Like
I Mean I Feel Like
All We Do Is Fight
And Every Single Night
We Can’t Get It Tight
We Can’t Get It Right
I Just Wanta Go Back
Take It Way Back
All The Way Back
Start Again Do It Over
Can We Straighten It Out
Can We Work It Out
Cause I Don’t Want Be Without
(You You You And I Just Can’t Hit Rock Bottom Over You)
You Make Me Feel Like
A Natural Man
And I Stand Under The Clouds
Tryna Catch You If I Can
And If That Goes As Planned
Then Safely You Should Land
We Will Hold Hands And Dance
To The Beat Drums Of Our Heart
We Should Never Be Apart
I Pray The Music Never Finish
From The Start On Ya Mark
Get Ready Set Pume
As I Race To The Finish Line
Better Yet The Top
Cause I Don’t Wanta Hit Rock Bottom
Bottom Line
Please

Sirens

[ 0 ] January 22, 2009

This one is weird, I was just kind of writing. Strange because it was daytime.

Sirens

The sirens blare as they chase the night
Always on call to fight death
Never taking a night off
The sirens fly to save you
Every night the sirens are too late
Too late to do any good
They get lost in the night
Lost in the darkness
They are just a sound.
A thought.

John Legend Everybody Knows Lyrics

[ 0 ] January 21, 2009

Everybody Knows by John Legend

It gets harder every day, but I can’t seem to shake the pain
I’m trying to find the words to say, please say
It’s written all over my face, I can’t
Function the same when you’re not here
I’m calling your name and no one’s there
And I hope one day you’ll see nobody has it easy,
I still can’t believe you found somebody knew
But I wish you the best, I guess.
‘Cause everybody knows, that nobody really knows
How to make it work, or how to ease the hurt
We’ve heard it all before, that everybody knows
How to make it right, I wish we gave it one more try
One more try
One more try
‘Cause everybody knows, but nobody really knows

I don’t care what the people say
They brought it all in anyway
Baby don’t fill up your head with he-said, she-said
It seems like you just don’t know
The radio’s on, you tuning me out,
I’m trying to speak, you’re turning me down
And I hope one day you’ll see nobody has it easy,
I still can’t believe you found somebody knew
But I wish you the best, I guess.
‘Cause everybody knows, that nobody really knows
How to make it work, or how to ease the hurt
We’ve heard it all before, that everybody knows
How to make it right, I wish we gave it one more try
One more try
One more try
One more try
‘Cause everybody knows, but nobody really knows

Oh I wish you’d understand
Oh, just an ordinary man
Listen we’d have known
Everybody knows, but nobody really knows
And I know one day you’ll see, nobody has it easy
I still can’t believe you found somebody knew
I wish you the best, I guess.

‘Cause everybody knows, that nobody really knows
How to make it work, or how to ease the hurt
We’ve heard it all before, that everybody knows
How to make it right, I wish we gave it one more try
One more try
One more try
One more try
‘Cause everybody knows, but nobody really knows

Fish in the Sea

[ 2 ] January 2, 2009

depressed fish in the sea“There are tons of fish in the sea, but what if I don’t know how to fish?” ~ Matthew Henrickson

Now even the fish are depressed. What am I supposed to ‘catch’ ?

The San Diego Union Tribune posted this short article:

“Researchers have found that antidepressants in rivers and lakes, part of the flood of pharmaceuticals washing into the environment, make fish sad, casuing them to cease eating or looking for mates. Some fish even stop swimming, preferring instead to simply hang vertically in the water.”

Even though “fish in the sea” is a metaphor, seems so real doesn’t it?
