As My Heart Drums For Just Your Presence


And so I heard

__my heart was nothing

I thought it big

So big that it was



______I could feel

The burning pain, when I get

My heart broken

__from town to town

Thee unbearable mess

Like a clock, that stopped

__it's ticking

____the ticking

______that it


Supposed to tick like

I'm often stuck on a flyin'

__imaginary airplane

Getting high on my

__mania road to

Destruction at thee end

I give my heart

To you

But behind your back

You say "It's finals this

__week, and this weekend"

____you "might be weak"

I have to miss the bands

Playin' at thee annual

Concert for my favorite

__radio station

____and I can't go

The band from my acid

__flash back era is performing

I'm only gonna be in a bad

Bad bad crashing emotion

When this weekend is not

Spent with you

No matter what the cost

You know you're my flame

And maybe you don't

I wanna hold onto ya

Make you shine for all the world

__to see you're mine

But you're not

'Cause I'm not hot

I'm a steaming cold appearance-having

Nothing you want to uplift you

Maybe it's best I feel like shit

Time to reflect on the swallowable

__objects that my homie used

____to kill himself

But where will that get me?

A rock falling off a cliff?

A regret for not 5150ing him?

Yeah, I know it's not my fault

I just wanna get away

__with you

The season of eazier times

It aughtta be just around

__the corner

Where ever

The pot of gold is

That that leprechaun

Is hiding from us

If you just take a chance

__on just this one more date

It would definitely be

The most ecstatic afternoon

Wet and under the sun

I'm sorry I cannot swim

But my heart is swimming to you

However it can handle

You not loving me back

Is all I can handle

The fire inside my all

I just wanna spend a weekend
