oh geee. i wrote this in an emotional state and thought it was shite. but its notreally. i mean i dont think so. the last paragraph/verse has just been added.

im sure its confusing. but it makes sense to me i suppose.



A cold rooftop & an even colder heart.

Baby, i'm not sure
I know how to feel anymore.
You've been keeping me numb
Small and meaningless under your thumb

&& Here i stand,
incomplete- yet whole.
The whole world is at my feet
yet i feel like i've lost control.
This car is on auto steer
& my life is passing me by.

I swore when i said the words
Things would be easier than they are
I thought i'd be better off
But thoughts only got me so far.
So tell me this isn't easy
tell me it's nothing like what you wanted
Tell me you want me to come home
and i swear i'll come running.

But i don't think you miss me at all.
I'm sure this has been the easiest thing
Just to stand and watch me fall.

& in my heart
I'm still sitting on the rooftop with you
Watching the world pass us by
I'm still singing our songs in the car with you
Late at night on the highway
I'm still lying in bed with you
hugging late into the night
I'm still laughing at the silly things with you
We'd say on the phone
I'm still crying my eyes out
After a silly fight
I'm still tearing myself apart
after i found out it was all a lie
I'm still dying inside

Baby don't lie,
You're crying through false tears
& it's time to hang up the phone.
It's been a hard fight from the start,
right from go i was holding the losing card.

All the songs we sung together
at night in your car
i'll sing alone to nothing
in the darkness of tonight

i'm not even sure i meant anything to you.
just know i won't be forgetting you.

I held on as much as i could,
my nails ripped and bleeding-

And now, this cold night wind
Blows through our skin
The rooftop chills our feet
We hold hands and stare into the night
Watching the cars and the city life.
The world doesn't matter
and continues to pass us by.

and so i held my heart in my hands,
the shattered pieces of what remained
i couldn't muster any words
to tell you how i felt
so i cried and cried
while you hugged me
and told me you'd find someone else.

and it'll be a long hard fight.
it'll be a struggle every night.
to realise i was always worth it.
but now i think,
this train has reached your stop.
i'm leaving you now.
please hang up the phone.
