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
remembers
the dialogue to
that long forgotten scene

where the lovers
dreamed
in chocolate covered
whispers

fueled by red bull
and fire

and undiscovered love

(grow)

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
frustrations
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
try
to be there for you

until
you start crying again

(until)

explanations

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

(lives)
