Summer Job

Work is draining all

of the energy I have

But I need the cash

End of the Road

Is there an end of the road?

Or does it just continue on forever?

Sometimes that’s how it feels.

The jokes, the pain, the misery,

They all drive down this long highway.

There’s never any stops signs.

It’s all just one continuous drive.

No one tries to stop them.

They just push it to the limit.

They grow so accustomed to the open road,

That one day they’ll find something in their way.

The won’t remember how to stop by then.

It will have been too long.

They’ll crash and burn.

They’ll be no survivors.

Not even the innocent bystanders.

Poor souls that just wanted to find

An end to this devastating road.

Song 6- Better Without You

*yet another breakup song. (I’m much better with describing sad feelings than happy ones apparently). Also from high school. Enjoy*

The day before my birthday, you pissed me off.

Your girlfriend got on Facebook and told me off.

You lied! You cheated! And now your conceited

Thinking you could pull it off.

You think it’s funny how you broke my heart.

It’s people like you that make wars start.

You’re stupid! Immature!Better off with her

Because you’re both pieces of trash.

I’m not angry, just betrayed

By the stupid choices you made.

You dumbass! You asshole!I’ll give you a mouthful.

You don’t treat a woman like that.

 

Didn’t your mama raise you right?

‘Cus now I’m gonna be up all night.

Crying my eyes out,

Crying with the lights out

Wondering what I did wrong.

 

But then again I know it’s not my bad.

You’re missing out on all you coulda had.

You know that I can do much better.

I have standards; I’m a goal setter.

Settling for you was my mistake,

But I’ll make it through the heartbreak.

Now I realize you’re just a decoy.

I’m off to find myself a better boy.

He’ll be a perfect gentleman.

On my scale he’ll be a perfect ten.

In the end I’m glad we’re through

Because I’m so much better without you.

 

February 13th you meet me at my locker.

At 8am, you know I’m not a talker.

You’re talking! I’m listening! the pain’s just beginning.

I can’t believe it happened again. Ugh.

You say you don’t want to be my valentine.

Not going to the dance suits you just fine.

You quitter! You player! I’ll send you a prayer,

Because lord knows you need it.

Now you’re just gonna walkout.

Found another girl by the end of the day.

You’re stupid! I hate you! You’re being so rude.

I could do without that attitude.

 

Didn’t your mama raise you right?

‘Cus now I’m gonna be up all night.

Crying my eyes out,

Crying with the lights out

Wondering what I did wrong.

 

But then again I know it’s not my bad.

You’re missing out on all you coulda had.

You know that I can do much better.

I have standards; I’m a goal setter.

Settling for you was my mistake,

But I’ll make it through the heartbreak.

Now I realize you’re just a decoy.

I’m off to find myself a better boy.

He’ll be a perfect gentleman.

On my scale he’ll be a perfect ten.

In the end I’m glad we’re through

Because I’m so much better without you.

 

What made you think

You could get away with murder?

Did you really think

I’d never see you with her?

Now that you’re gone

Let’s end the charade.

I hope you enjoy

Your new downgrade.

I can find someone new too.

Someone much better than you,

A boy that actually treats me well.

On the past, I’ll never dwell.

 

 

But then again I know it’s not my bad.

You’re missed out on all you coulda had.

You know that I did so much better.

I have standards; I’m a goal setter.

Settling for you was my mistake,

But I made it through the heartbreak.

Now I realize you’re just a decoy.

I went off and found myself a better boy.

He’s such a perfect gentleman.

On my scale he is a perfect ten.

In the end I’m glad we’re through

Because I’m so much better without you.

Song 5- Anything

*Woo! Another song of mine. This ones a break-up one. I know it’s from high school. I just don’t know when. Enjoy*

You tore me to pieces

And you think that it’s okay,

But then you wonder why

I keep pushing you away.

You act like nothings wrong.

It’s nice to just pretend.

But I’m afraid you and I

Have come to our end.

 

I loved you so much.

I loved you a lot.

But Why you loved me,

You seem to forgot.

To whoever you are,

I don’t mean a thing.

Now when I look at you,

I don’t feel anything.

 

Don’t give me that look.

You know our whole story.

How we rose to the top

And fell from our glory,

You left me in the dirt.

You left me alone

But I didn’t need your help.

I got up on my own.

 

I loved you so much.

I loved you a lot.

But Why you loved me,

You seem to forgot.

To whoever you are,

I don’t mean a thing.

Now when I look at you,

I don’t feel anything.

 

I gave you my heart.

You tore it apart.

You think that I’ll return

But let me make this clear.

I’m never coming back.

There’s so much that you lack.

Alone, I’m better off.

Won’t shed a single tear.

 

I loved you so much.

I loved you a lot.

But Why you loved me,

You seem to forgot.

To whoever you are,

I don’t mean a thing.

Now when I look at you,

I don’t feel anything.

Fifty Foot Cliff

I’m standing at the edge

of a fifty foot cliff.

You seem to think I’ll fly,

But I will only fall.

You can just keep wishing

But you can’t change the facts.

Even with that knowledge,

You choose to ignore it.

You gently nudge me on,

Keep pushing me forward.

You have good intention,

But I wish you’d just stop.

 

Put everything I have

to keep my feet on ground.

You think you know better,

Than what I keep saying.

I’m not going to fly!

Why won’t you just listen?

I told you this won’t work.

It’s a guaranteed fail.

*I hope you like my metaphor. Surely someone else can also find something else in their life that compares to this. Like maybe a parent pushing you try something. Or a friend trying to push you into a relationship. something like that* 

Apparently, I Was Asking For It

Apparently, I was asking for it

By wearing a flowy skirt to my knees

And a cardigan over my lime green tee.

Even though as a lifeguard,

I wear less to work every day

And unscathed I walk every day.

If I can walk around

In just a swimsuit and shorts,

And never find myself violated,

Then my outfits are not the problem.

Rape culture is the problem.

Put the blame on someone else for once

Because clothing doesn’t force itself onto someone.

People do.

 

 

Song 4- More Than Meets the Eye

Another find from junior year! woo. This one is complete and probably one of my favorites. Enjoy!

 

Sometimes you let it get the best of you.
You can’t see the good in what you do.
You see your mistakes, You see your flaws.
Your days go wrong without a cause.
You wonder why these days are so long.
You ask yourself what else could go wrong?
You forget this life is just for now.
Just go with it and don’t ask how.

What’s the point of caring
If no one’s even staring.
Life will just pass you by.
There’s more than ever meets the eye.
Take a risk and start to dance.
What’s a life without a chance?
You’ll never know until you try.
There’s more than meets the eye.

In your life, let regret just disappear.
Take the time to face your fears.
Tell your friends what’s on your mind.
Tell that boy he’s one of a kind.
Don’t listen to what the haters say.
Live your life day to day.
We’re young and beautiful just for now.
Just go with it and don’t ask how.

What’s the point of caring
If no one’s even staring.
Life will just pass you by.
There’s more than ever meets the eye.
Take a risk and start to dance.
What’s a life without a chance?
You’ll never know until you try.
There’s more than meets the eye.

Don’t care how you look,
Just know who you are.
In your own world,
you should be the star.
Just let your hair down
and feel the breeze.
You can live your life
anyway you please.

What’s the point of caring
If no one’s even staring.
Life will just pass you by.
There’s more than ever meets the eye.
Take a risk and start to dance.
What’s a life without a chance?
You’ll never know until you try.
There’s more than meets the eye.

Live your life with no regret.
Always forgive, always forget.
Be yourself, don’t live a lie.
There’s more than ever meets the ye.
Live with integrity.
Shine for the whole world to see.
spread your wings, it’s time to fly.
There’s more than meets the eye.

Song 3- Where Has Your Heart Gone

More lyrics to another song I’ve wrote. I think I wrote this during english class junior year ( not sure, but I wasn’t a big fan of Othello so odds are likely) . This one is complete and sadly has no clever puns. But still, Enjoy!

Left alone
In the snow
Without your warmth
I’ve turned to snow.
You can’t thaw me
I’ve gone so cold
Without your hand
To hold.
Without your smile,
I’m left to wonder
Where has your heart gone?
Yea where has your heart gone?

Has it gone on an adventure?
Is it on a roller coaster?
Is it walking through the dessert?
Or sailing across the ocean?
And I just want you to know that
Whatever the situation
You know I’ll be waiting,
Right here,
For your return.

Yesterday
You were beside me.
Now today,
You’ve disappeared.
Now you’ve left me
To face the world.
With no one here,
I’m on my own.
Without you near,
I’m left to wonder
Where has your heart gone?
Yea where has your heart gone?

Has it gone on an adventure?
Is it on a roller coaster?
Is it walking through the dessert?
Or sailing across the ocean?
And I just want you to know that
Whatever the situation
You know I’ll be waiting,
Right here,
For your return.

(instrumental)

Has it gone on a vacation?
Has it gone on a safari?
Is it out there mountain climbing?
Or trekking through the forest?
And I just want you to know that
whatever the situation
You know I’ll be waiting,
Right here,
For your return.
