This might be the oldest song of mine that I still have on my computer. It was written in 2005, back when I was way too young to really comprehend what any of these lyrics actually mean, and somehow it's still one of my favorite things that I've ever come up with. For some reason, it took me until now to put it up on this site.

ALSO: I've been playing around with GarageBand a lot lately, and I think I'm confident enough to record these songs for the three or four of you that read them. Let me know if you want to hear something, and if I have music written for it as well I'll be happy to send you an MP3.


I hit the ground way too fast.
I wished the feeling would always last.
But couldn't reveal it,
I had to hold my screams in,
I couldn't let you figure it out.

Striking up conversations seemed so hard
Even if there was nothing there to set us apart.
And when I got a word in,
I found it was all for nothing
When it traveled in your ear to just flow out.

So I'll just stand here dumbfounded,
My feet stuck to the ground.
You think that I can't hear you,
But I can make out every sound.
My life's not enough with fantasies to weigh me down.
Weigh me down.

You left me there to wonder what I was
I want to be a part of you.
Is that love?
Is this love?

I'll just stand here dumbfounded,
My feet stuck to the ground.
I wish I couldn't hear you,
But I can make out every sound.
My life's not enough with fantasies to weigh me down.

If the girl you grabbed isn't what you thought,
And if her love is just a lie you bought
I'll find you.
If you were looking for something better, but don't like what you found,
I'll be waiting.
Just turn around.

You've been so cold,
The thought I'm losing all of you has started to get old.
I don't think you meant that.
I just wish you could go.

It's just a crush.
No more than a crush.
Just a crush.

But I'm still standing dumbfounded,
My feet stuck to the ground.
I wanted to cry out loud,
But I couldn't make a sound.
My life's not enough with fantasies to weigh me down.

If the girl you grabbed isn't what you thought,
And if her love is just a lie you bought
I'll find you.
And if you want to fix your broken heart,
I'll save you.
If you were looking for something better, but don't like what you found,
I'll be waiting.
Just turn around.
