Saying My Goodbyes


If I don't ever kill you

I hope you never find me

If love from your heart

Ever gets called into existence

I hope that I can fondle thee

You capture my heart

With the brain in your head

Because that's all that you have

That you can receive my love with

Well, I hope you go to Hell

And die sometime

But right now I want to strangle you to sleep

Tell me you're in love with me

How I want to kill you is oh, so strange

But I couldn't care

I'll wash you outta my hair when you're dead

And love can begin

I wake up wasted on a sunny day

I never know why I love you this way

Just that nothing matters

But your kiss on my lips

That I'll never get

But, oh, what the Hell

We'll never be a couple, the way you treat me this way

My emotions are ripe for the taking

But you would rather be sitting and baking

All your brain cells away

Just to be complaining

About your day

Most of what I think about you

Has nothing to do with how I feel about you

Thee "us" that we could never be

And still can't

For whatever reason

I don't think you care for me

So I'm-a put this bullet in your head

Call it a day

Goodbye, babe

Oh, she's not real. This was made up. Or else I'd tag her name in it. Thanks for reading! Haven't seen you in a while.
