Is This Number After Me?


The nightmare passes by

The nightmare takes my life

I stand unwatched

Waiting for the night to be gone

But it doesn't go by

I puff on my box mod

Hoping the morning will come as soon as possible

But it won't until I sleep

Or else it will

And then I'll sleep

Without a care in the world

Whether I miss work or not

But I should be caring

I know I should


Standing in this position

Seems more important

But why does it?

I'm up against a wall

Nothing to do

No love to chase after

Not another number

Think I'll just stop searching for her

But don't know why

I have given up

I really don't like to dream


Or I'd be in bed already

Do you know what this means?

Number 98's gonna find me

Before I find her

And she will be the change

Fear strikes my heart

I'm not financially ready

Not entirely

You see?

I have a hard time reacting to surprizes

A hard time showing appropriate responses

To such.

Tough love


I know I'm gonna fail

__and that's the number I wanted

____to land on

______and forever keep loving

It's often harder to stand

In this position

Knowing God wants me to be

__somebody's man

Even if just in my future

If one night it all goes wrong

Then in one night she will be gone

And a nightmare, I go back to living

Just like this

Only thee exact opposite end

__of an event

"The love of my life"
