This Night

Lets not say goodnight just yet
Damn me, I’ve lost my sight
Of what’s true and desired
Giving up is easy, when you fear the fire

No crying ourselves to sleep tonight
I’d rather walk ten miles in the cold
We lay together in a bed, alone
No longer touching or holding
No longer dreaming on your shoulder

We fuss in an empty room
With nothing to hold on to
Howling and shrieking into the depths
Of madness and foolish plight
Broken and dragging each other down

I don’t wish for this to be our last night
If you tell me it is, I’d ratherĀ spend it by your side
Wipe my tears and kiss my lips
Hold me tight, and whisper blurred promises in my ear
We’ll make believe we are flying higher than ever
Through the rest of this night…

Cruising

Sorry, I’ve been away
3 months passed
Never looked back
But I knew I’d miss your face…

Tires burning across lonely concrete
Steering. Clearing my head
Reimagining worlds. Getting lost
In music and written words
Bleeding pens and broken led
Passenger seat full of mindless banter
Confessions and guilty lessons

I daydreamed of you and I
In an aqua paradise, sleeping
Under a flickering street lamp, kissing
In the snow, under a mistletoe
In a crowded cafe, under a turquoise moon
Silly pubescent cartoons
Silly, fucking, cruising
To Led Zeppelin
