Reality's Hittin' Me Now

-

"You have" lost me

I have lost you

It's not easy

Being a potato chip

Soon I will be eaten

Alive

I will celebrate the past

By not partying, "at all"

I'll just express my dying wish

To explain my fallen ways

Drowning in the mists of loss

How can I breathe now?

How can I not cry?

This is just too much

Pain, for me to have to sit and feel

Why can't the world just stop

And rewind?

All I wanna do is correct what I

__did wrong

____with you

I wouldn't even change anything else

I would only go back to when

You said you were horny

And I would step up to the plate

And ev'rything would be alright

Now that I know it's impossible

I pray I get a chance with

Some other fuckable babe

But, God knows I am not worthy

So my prayers mean nothing

'Cause I am a sinner

Now I'll never be a winner

I just wanna move again

And drive this time

I feel like crying

I don't want to be dying

But these songs make my tears

Stain my heart

For, I won't let them fall down

They just build up

__inside me

I know I'm gonna cry, if I

Stop writing

"Please, God, don't let me reach

__my point

Let me still be in the middle of

A sentence

If you can't give me love

At least, can I keep on

__writing?"
