The corpse that existed to fly
With purpose and claws for hunting fears
Instead exchanged the weight
Of a heart too heavy for wings to bear

4. and 5.

One minute here

Don't even think about leaving yet
Deal with me

You appeared

Don't even think about leaving yet
I'm not a part of some false regret

Seemed so real

Don't even think about leaving yet

Another has taken your place

6.

All it takes if the flap of a butterfly's wings
To upset the balance of the world
Watch as it tinkers and wobbles
Do you learn forward to catch it?
Or let it fall and break into pieces at your feet?

7.

I've never been good with people cryin'
Suppose it's 'cause mom always cried,

cried,

cried,

cried,

cried,

cried,

cried when she looked at me

If it took death to stop those tears
Then I was fine with dying

it'll be alright,

it'll be alright,

it'll be alright,

it'll be alright,

it'll be alright,

it'll be alright,

it'll be alright - just so long as the cryin'

STOPS

Tiny dancer beware
We're medicated and scared
This smile is so hard to wear

9.

Only those who are swallowed by ignorance and fear and miss a step

10.

Here's the day you hoped would never come
The paper cuts, the cheating lovers, the coffee's never strong enough
I know you think it's more than just bad luck
Now, now darlin', don't lose your head

11.

I know what it's like to realize
That nothing is sure in this world
What do I feel for you?

kindness?

more like one-sided sympathy

12.

We are drawn to each other

like drops of water

like the planets around the sun

We repulse each other

like magnets

like the colors of our skin, hair, eyes

Now we've paid our debt

But the debt you owe

Is even greater than ours

15 & 16.

I've said it so many times - I would change my ways

People change their ways
When there's nothing left to lose
You won't recall all your words
But the toughest beats
Will haunt your heart and mind

No - never mind - God knows I've tried

17.

I left the spare key on the table
Never really thought I'd be able to say
I merely visit on the weekends

18.

One day
I'll introduce myself
And you'll see
You've not yet met me

19.

Those complicatedcomplexcomplicatedconvolutedcomplicated things
Tend to be the most fragile

20.

will you write the end for me?
