let go grow

there's got
to be
one person
you can just
let go with

giggle madly with
scream the lyrics with

someone who
the dialogue to
that long forgotten scene

where the lovers
in chocolate covered

fueled by red bull
and fire

and undiscovered love

thin ice

when i
have to
talk to you

i find myself
walking on thin ice

each word i say
three years
before i say it

looking ahead
for any
pitfall in phrasing
before i think it

stepping out
inch by inch
with only my wits
to guide me

wishing i didn't have
to try at all

knowing no matter
what i say

i fall

true love

stay positive

that's the way
i like you

stay happy

that's the way
you should be

don't show me
your anger

don't show me
your pain

don't share the
that come into your life

i'm not here for that

just show me the smile
i thought you always had
on your face

be normal
for once in your life

and i'll always
to be there for you

you start crying again

she's my country
she's my state

in confusion
i turn to her
and she sets me straight

i don't expect you
to understand
just how close she is

just know she is

she's my night
she's my day

in pain
i turn to her
and she takes it all away

i don't expect you
to accept
the power she has over me

she uses me

....but i use her right back

in that crazy give-and-take
that's supposed to be love

or so i've been told

but return

but don't forget me

but think of me

every now and then

the road
leads back
(even if it is uphill)

walk away
but remember
that i stayed

and please come back soon
