Waiting To Forget

-

Ev'rybody's gone

There's no one to love

I'm just waiting for number 114

To come and save me from this emptiness

That has swallowed me whole

And taken over me

Everywhere I go

I cannot find her

And all the times of the day

I feel the burn

The flames of the Hell

That surrounds me

Compel me to do nothing

And overdose on caffeine

And nicotine

And just drive myself crazy

Over and over

Again and again

Telling myself

"I wish I were dead"

And seeing no results

Wishes never get granted

Because magic is not real

Love is only an illusion

But I just wanna feel it

Though I know at this moment

That I'm not dumb enough to feel it

Not when I know better

The sad news smears

The reality of thee impossibility

Of love being real

All over the place

And that ruins anything I would like to feel

So my heart drags me down to gravity

Pulling me down, because I can see

That there is never a reason

To love anybody again

Because it will only end

And I can never get

Myself to unknow that

Just so it it can happen

So that I would at least

Have love until it does end

Rather than never having

Love, at all, ever again

So I'm waiting

Waiting for me to forget

That "love is not real"

Just so I can have

Something new to feel
