I have happiness in my heart and a thorn in my soul

Broken lover

If I had of known that would be the last time I’d ever see those eyes

I would have made an effort, I would have said goodbye

You kissed me on the lips, and said “I’ll see you soon”

I scoffed and said “we’ll see”, and with this sealed our doom

It felt like we were always fleeting moments here and there

We had good times in beds and bars but didn’t belong anywhere

This world had no place for the love of you and I

We kept telling ourselves we could make it work but knowing it was a lie

Your way of dealing with pain was to run and hide away

But by doing this you missed out on all the things I had to say

We never stopped for long enough to be comfortable with each other

You told me that you wanted to be more than just my lover

But when it came for actions, to back up all your words

I could not find you anywhere, sight unseen and words unheard

And so we danced our dance for as long as we could bear

And when I truly needed you, you weren’t there or anywhere

So I made the right decision, I chose to move away

You left me many messages with promise of another day

But while you remained frozen, stuck in the same place

I had found another love, a love of truth and grace

You tried and tried to bring me down

You tried and tried to pull me round

But finally I made the call and like a cancer cut you out

‘Cause all you brought was drama and that’s not what I’m about


Lesson Learned

Your body pale and bathed in light

I know it’s wrong but feels so right

We took pills and drank till dawn

And we believed true love was born

We heard the old man’s stories

Of past accomplishments and glory

You said you could tell from the start

I’d be the one to steal your heart

The barman took me behind the bar

And taught me to pour a pint of your tar

You later said you were so impressed

You could not wait to get me undressed

We closed the door behind us, passion burning bright

We tousled to the floor, you made every move just right

But when time came for life to start

Our own ways did we have to part

And soon I came to learn through one

You weren’t a man I could count upon

So moments were our only time

I was yours and you were mine

I learned my lesson well from you

On love and what one should not do
