Falling for so long
Past the sunrise
Ignoring every sign we pass
Missing every mark
On the dartboard–
And therefore every chance.
And if we’d only lifted up our heads
Brushed away the tears
Shrugged off the dread
Found ourselves in the swarm of bees
Raised our voices above the din
Then maybe these smiles would be genuine.
And we all know the story
The fable since time begun.
That we’re not everlasting
But this youth has me feeling young
In these moments with these eyes
This mouth speaking the words you despise.
“I will never change,”
Like the sun in the sky and the moons
That revolve around it
This power is mine to take
And I demand it.
If we’d only turned the key
Stepped into the unknown
Forced ourselves out of the shell
That we retreated inside of
Then maybe we would see
The glow of the halo’s that were always there
Just hidden away, out of sight,
Maybe then you wouldn’t think about it any more
But you were a little too late,
Hopefully a lesson learnt,
Never treat me as a mere after thought.
