When you sleep :.

May 19, 2007

Here is the hardest place to stay
Always trouble brewing, angers flare beneath the surface
Of a paper thin veneer
I try to tell that I love you
But I don’t believe it
And you won’t hear half the things I say

I’m done with the crying
Through with all the pain I’m feeling
I am tired and I’m cold
Loneliness is just the blanket that I keep

You want me to stay
But you want to go away
And I don’t understand the things you keep saying to me
When you sleep
When you sleep

How come you can only speak the truth
When you sleep
When you sleep

How can you only say I love you
In the darkness
In the moments when you sleep

Words are sharp
They cut through me like ginsu knives
No matter how much abuse I’ve taken
I can still pretend to love you
How can you say, I don’t care anymore
I don’t have reasons to make me stay
Yet I haven’t fled forever out the door

And I’m through,
Yes, I’m done with all the crying
Through with all the pain I’m feeling
I am tired, I am cold
Emptiness is all that’s deep inside of me

You want me to stay
But you want to go away
And I don’t understand the things you keep saying to me
When you sleep
When you sleep

How come you can only speak the truth
When you sleep
When you sleep

How can you only say I love you
In the darkness
In the moments when you sleep
