This is just a little something that came to me during my American Gov. class because I was too bored to pay attention. So please read and let me know what you think! R&R's are returned! Thanks and enjoy!


Drive Away

We stand on the porch screaming out our hearts
I don't know how everything could fall apart
You're leaving me now in this state of mind
And I'd be lying if I told you I was fine

You yell about how I don't listen to you
Even though you know that it's not true
I fire back how you're never there
And we both cry out how life's not fair

Now we're quiet with tears on our face
This fight isn't something we can ever erase
There has always been something we have lacked
And I'm grateful now that you're not coming back

Because sometimes we finish, sometimes we don't
Sometimes I can and sometimes you won't
So just get into your car and drive away
Because you don't have the guts to say what you need to say

You look back to see my face in your rearview mirror
I don't know how things could be much clearer
I check myself and give a half-hearted wave
But you don't see because you're trying to be brave

But then the tires slow and you don't get far
You take a deep breath and step out of the car
Running back crying, you throw your arms around me
And I smile to myself realizing you finally see

Our story ends here with the two of us
Your heart says it all I know it does
So you get into your car and drive away
Because now there is nothing left to say
