your voice is my addiction
the only real guilty pleasure i have
the vice i never want to lose
when i feel like this, i take a hit.
by midnight i will fly
no matter how i have to do it
it's the least i can do for you.
for those eyes.
lashes splayed out like my fingers on this keyboard.
trying to work out the lyrics to a song i'll never write.
if everyday of my pain brought you just a second of joy,
i'd cry forever.
i'd live my life just on the edge of drowning.
i'm just too shallow to end it.
but tonight things change.
i'll drop off the face of this earth.
or at least off the edge of my personal hell.
oxygen is too big of a reminder.
so i hold my breathe instead of holding you.
waiting until those church bells chime.
just another wreck waiting in line.
i know you don't understand, but that's okay.
my goodbye will make you free.
my end will let you begin.
the flight has been delayed, but maybe i don't want it to land.
it can fly forever
just as i hope to do soon.
