The Taste of Heartbreak

Standard

The taste of heartbreak on my tongue
Is like cherry cough syrup
The acid climbing up the walls of my throat
Burns
Just like your lack of words.

Here I am and I gave you my all
And for what reason
When you can’t be bothered to talk

Well I have fallen
Now I’m crashin’ and burnin’
Over you
No more “I love you”s
No more begging for you to see
When I’ve got the taste of heartbreak on my teeth

Oh the foolishness
How I wanted to be…
Oh the silliness
How I pretend not to see
Your lack of affection towards me

Here I stand and I gave you my all
For what reason
When you can’t be bothered to call?

Well I have fallen
Now I’m crashin’ and burnin’
Over you
No more “I love you”s
No more begging for you to see
When I’ve got the taste of heartbreak on my teeth

Can’t turn around, we can’t go back
I want to hide my face, cover my eyes
Because when I see you I know my chest will ache

Here I kneel at your feet and I gave you my all
For what reason
When you could care less where I fall?

Well I have fallen
Now I’m crashin’ and burnin’
Over you
Over you
Over you
No more “I love you”s
No more begging for you to see
When I’ve got the taste of heartbreak on my teeth
No more loving you
No more asking for you to love me
When I’ve got the

Taste of heartbreak on my tongue
Is like cherry cough syrup

Will You Let Me In?

Standard

How deep are your waters?
How wide is your sea?
How warm is the beach
Where you and I meet?

I want to swim in your ocean
I want to dive in your soul
Will you let me in
Will you let me in
Will you let me into your heart?

How how high is your sky?
How white are your clouds?
How dry is the land
Where you and I touch?

I want to fly in your eyes
I wan to dive in your soul
Will you let me in
Will you let me in
Will you let me into your heart?

How dark is your space?
How bright are your stars?
How far must I go
Until I’m in your arms?

I want to burn in your chest
Take a rocket into your soul
Will you let me in
Will you let me in
Will you let me in at all?

I want to swim in your ocean
I want to fly through your eyes
I want to dive in your soul
Will you let me in
Will you let me in
Will you let me in
Will you let me into your heart?

Will you let me in
Will you let me in
Will you let me in
Will you let me into your heart?

Like a Violin

Standard

My heart is strumming in your hand
You play it like a violin
You’ve got my soul in your grips
Going to keep me hanging on your starship

Reach into the galaxy
Pull out a star for me
Burning in my chest
Where my love once rest.

You’ve got me under your spell
You play the craft so well
Hey there music man
Can you lead me out of this wonderland?

Down the rabbit hole
Bring me some tea
Go in for the gold
You’ve kept me empty

You play your harmony
Using my melody
As you pluck at the strings
My lungs are humming
I feel the music lulling me to sleep.

Reach into the sea
Play that harp for me
Once upon a time
Do I get a happy ending?

My life strums in your hand
You play my heart like a violin
I’m just a puppet to you now
Dancing on stage for your audience.

These are actually song lyrics believe it or not inspired by the music on Ermilia’s Listen & Write <——check it out!! Oddly after inspiring this writing, the lyrics don’t quite fit with the music :[ Oh well!

Why do you do this to me?

Standard

A song that I just wrote. Probably one of my most emotional ones in like forever. I was basically crying while writing this. So, thanks to Chester See who’s music inspired me to write this song which has been haunting me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I thought I was over you

I thought I was free

But when I saw your face

Smiling back at me

My wounds began to open

My heart beat too fast

I gripped onto his hand

And hoped the feeling wouldn’t last

*

{Chorus}

There’s a pit in my stomach

Growing with each passing second

My limbs begin to quiver and I’m sure I’m going to faint

I’ve acquired a fever and my body aches

I think I’m going to throw-up

Why do you do this to me?

*

When I saw you standing there

Your blue eyes looked at me

My heart began thumping wildly inside my chest

I couldn’t breathe. I couldn’t breathe. I couldn’t I can’t breathe.

*

{Chorus}

There’s a pit in my stomach

Growing with each passing second

My limbs begin to quiver and I’m sure I’m going to faint

I’ve acquired a fever and my body aches

I think I’m going to throw-up

Why do you do this to me?

*

I’m just trying to get it down on paper

I can’t explain

The effect you have over me

Every time I see you any progress that I have made has been erased

I can’t even think.

Why am I so darn weak?

*

I hate that I can’t let you go

I hate that I will never know

What we could have been.

I hate the way you smile

I hate how your eyes twinkle

But worst of all

I hate that he knows.

*

{Chorus}

There’s a pit in my stomach

Growing with each passing second

My limbs begin to quiver and I’m sure I’m going to faint

I’ve acquired a fever and my body aches

I think I’m going to throw-up

Why do you do this to me?

x2

*

Why can’t I let you go?

Years of rejection, you think I would know

How to finally move on

How to say goodbye

We no longer speak

But still, in your hands my heart lies.

Here I Go Again

Standard

Here I go,

Here I go again

Clear mind

And I’m ready to win

I see you shake within your skin

Now let the games begin

You’ll try to change me

Redirect me

But I won’t give in.

You’ll try to shake me

Disconnect me

I won’t commit no sin.

Chorus:

The rules of life

Always trying to get on my bad side.

The white lines

Disappearing with every stride.

Constricted and pulled

With every tide.

I get pushed and thrown

Aside.

Been there

Done this before.

Yeah, I fall and crawl

But I’m not forlorn.

I’ve been beaten, I’ve  been worn

Still you won’t see me mourn.

I will rise up

I will triumph

Over you this time.

I won’t give in

I won’t let you win

No, I will climb.

chorus

Here we go (here we go)

Once again (once again)

No I won’t (no I won’t)

Let you win.
