The Flame Rekindles


I was drowning in an ocean

Of me without you

That's the most I can make out

__of how I felt

The morning I woke up

And then realized

You would never be mine

Pissed off as all Hell

That I could never have you

You were almost

Somebody not real

As I screamed

__and I cried

____out' my brain

I was dying


That you weren't mine

I thought suddenly

That it was O.K.

But now thee emotion is back

I choke on my feelings

I can't be your


I just gotta have you

I almost wanna live a fat lie

And never tell you

You cut your hair

'Cause maybe you know

But at least I never confessed it

I have no reason to admit it to you

You live minutes from me


But I don't dare to know where

Though I do care

We never cross paths

It's like you're avoiding me

Have I done anything to scare you?

Maybe it's my love for you

Maybe it's obvious to you

But it's like I never knew
