The Months It'll Be Until


The gift my heart has given to such a mistake

My heart was touched in the beginning

But now that it's wrecked

__it feels like it is ending

The rock's in my bowl

I'm not too old to blast off

Weed is legal now

So I need something harder now

Gonna find out

What smoking alone, ev'ry bag, is all about

Maybe I could have

__more fun this way

When I'm nowhere near you

And you're nowhere around

You can't find my heart

Because I have thrown it away

With each passing day

Now no passion

__can beat in my chest

For a woman who can't be

My any

__and ev'rything

Love doesn't happen to be

__the best part of you and me

When you don't love me, at all

And to me

__you mean ev'rything

Say "goodbye" to my heart now

I isn't gonna be around until mid spring

And I'll be vigilant

To not even text you on Valentine's day

'Cause "why even try?"

Our world

__which never existed

Has vanished

__for never becoming real

And as I look for some one to replace

What I saw in you that went to my brain

And then traveled to my heart

And then wrecked me

And made me fall apart

I'll try not to remember

That "we never stood a chance"

And how I loved you for nothing

Just to have you be a part of me


__and utterly

____not mutually

As I kick my heart around and around

I never miss the feelings I aim for

And becoming a mess

__all becomes a bore

Driving me to smoke crack

To pass the time

Until you're back before my eyes

Unless I die

Oh, I know. I wasn't really smoking crack again. I won't even go back to weed! Thanks for enjoying this!
