I Miss You

I really don’t know where to start
So I open up my heart
And reminisce the thoughts of you
You know I have a lot of friends
And my work knows no ends
But my heart’s tied in knots of you
I miss you
I miss you
I miss you every day

I remember your eyes and smile
And your words, “Just in a while
I’ll be back again to see you.”
But I know you may never come back
All my world has turned to black
Oh my mind refuses to free you
I miss you
I miss you
I miss you every hour

I look up and release a sigh
Into the wide blue open sky
Was that the last I’ve seen of you?
The heedless sky’s no response
Leaves me broken for the nonce
Is there no way but to dream of you?
I miss you
I miss you
I miss you all the time

Finally Free

There are no worries now
I’m feeling a bit too good
A burden off my shoulders
A rodent off my hood
It might just take me time
I haven’t felt such joy
Ever since I met you
When you played me like a toy
But now it’s over
I’m glad it’s over
I’m sending invitations out
I’m leaving no one in doubt
Yes this party is on me
Because now I’m finally free
I’m gonna stay up all night
Dance till the morning light
I can be what I wanna be
Because now I’m finally free

I don’t know where you are
Or how you’re gonna fare
Whatever happens to you
I just don’t care
Because now it’s over
I’m glad it’s over
I’m sending invitations out
But you’re who’s missing out
Yes this party is on me
I’ll be drinking till it’s three
I’m gonna flirt with all the girls
Make plans to travel the world
It’s the life that’s meant for me
Because now I’m finally free

I’ve never had such fresh air
No worries and nothing to care
Now I hope it stays
I wish it stays
I’m sending invitations out
Hell, I’ll just scream and shout
I will dance tipsy-turvy
Because now I’m finally free
I’ll go crazy, I’ll go wild
I’ll be clumsy like a child
It’s just what I wanna be
Because now I’m finally free

The Roses Smell The Same

This was once a happy place
I for once was a happy face
But now there is just empty space
And for many years
These walls haven’t heard your name
But the roses smell the same

My plain dull trousers, your bright red dress
Lying around in such a mess
My only hope for happiness
Is not in clinging on
But in extinguishing the flame
Still the roses smell the same

Oh these beautiful damaging thoughts
Tie my mind up in knots
Leaving me to connect the dots
In the wild winter winds
And all through the sad seasons’ shame
Yet the roses smell the same

When I sleep I do not sleep
When I weep I do not weep
Only an illusion I do keep
When I give up
I’ll be closer than where I can now aim
While the roses smell the same

A Little Butterfly

It was a little butterfly
I tried to catch but couldn’t
I set a trap for it to fall
Yet the insect wouldn’t
I hoped with all of my might
My hoping was in vain
The more I tried, the more I failed
My heart then bled with pain
It was then the butterfly
Came and sat next to me
So we talked for some hours
Oh we talked so endlessly
We discussed about the blazing sun
About clouds and skies and trees
And we left no word unturned
About plants and songs and bees
Then her time was up as I
Watched her flutter back and fly
Though I tried to keep a hold
She left me here to cry
Now then for the second time
I felt my heart bleed sore
And I couldn’t quite decide
Which is bad and which is more
Was it worse the first time
When I didn’t know her at all
Or was it worse the second time
When my heart rose just to fall?

I Rented Out My Heart To You

I rented out my heart to you
I thought you’d keep it good
Never asked my monthly due
As any landlord would

But you took me for a ride
The place is now a mess
The damages can’t be denied
Have left me in distress

No apologies or anything
You left behind no sign
A fool I was to expect something
From a girl without a spine

Now I’ll keep my heart with me
Never let it out on rent
Though it may seem a bit empty
I will feel a lot more content
