NowI'mNeverGonnaGetYouBack
I was staring at a screen in my apartment all alone Not a knock at the door or a ring from a phone When I felt a feeling over my right shoulder, reminiscent of the beginning, now getting older And it made me think of you my dear, the only one I've known to be so close, so near And that is why I write here what I lack, 'cause now I'm never gonna get you back. I looked out my window into the frozen white streets, watching the curiousities of people as they meet They dance and turn around each other too, just like this dance that I watch you do No, no you don't dance with me anymore I'm an asshole, a liar, a cheater, a bore So now

A Disappearing Act
They make you feel alive They make you feel dead They prove that love is just all in your head They make you feel alive They make you feel dead They prove that it all means nothing in the end Seeing right past you looking right through you but not caring what's really inside A disappearing act! A disappearing act! When they just let go when you're left alone you fade away from their mind A disappearing act! A disappearing act! Without their arms to hold you without their love to mold you you fade, fade away into nothing A disappearing act... They make you feel purposeless They make you feel contrived They prove that love

You've got a way
You've got a way of just throwing things away when they're just getting good You never do just what you should You've got a way of just giving yourself away to all this running under lies Can you even look me in the eyes? But I guess I'm not just any guy I guess I'm not the typical kind and I bet, I bet you never expected me to last this long, to care this long, to hold on this long, to write this song, to feel this strong I bet you never You've got a way of getting through each day just ignoring all this mess, you never get it off your chest You've got a way of just shutting things away Never admitting to whats true

Won't be me
Tears come only so long before bitter anger You treat me these days like some kind of stranger How much longer can this last? I know you'd be sad if I'd just up and leave Especially with how your heart's right on your sleeve How much longer can this last? Who will give in first? Won't be me Won't be me Won't be me that's falling all over myself Won't be me Won't be me, baby Won't be me that's crying alone by myself You did what you did expecting no consequences Hiding your lies behind silent picket fences You won't say a word But I know it all still Such a hollow facade It almost gives me chills How much longer can

You've Been Here All Along
Isn't it amazing? How the most masochist, self-destructive tendencies can hide away in the deepest, darkest parts of your mind, only to sneak up behind you when you're 3 years older, jaded and colder I thought you were gone, but I guess you were here all along I thought you were gone, but I guess you never really left at all Isn't it a little crazy? The way you think you've got everything Until you lose one thing that matters most, and suddenly you're a wandering ghost with nowhere to hide but pain Am I really doing this again? I thought you were gone, but I guess you were here all along I thought you were gone, but I guess

Lifeless Night Life
Feeling so lonesome, On a nostalgic night like this I'm crying out for someone, To bring back that feeling I miss Theres something missing inside me, Like a hole in my heart I cant stop this aching feeling, Now that I'm all torn apart... Like a song without words, Like music without notes, Like a bird without wings, Or a ship without sails... If I could be here with you, You know what I'd do... I'd write the words to the song, and sing it for you Put the notes to the music, and play it for you Sew the wings on the bird, and fly to you Fit the sails on the ship, and sail to you... But it's so hard... To sing to someone, To

I wrote this when I was drunk
There was a time When I couldn't rhyme But I wrote this anyway Even though I forgot what I was going to say Something about love Something about life It was a sight so pleasing I thought that I was dreaming But I simply had too much to drink But even so I could still think How beautiful the lake was that morning I tried to give myself a warning But I did it anyway There's not much left to say It's already a new day And I guess there's just no way But I'll always treasure the way Your eyes look when you say "Hey..." And we left then Left behind that great moment But even though it's gone The memory lives on Today You ca

You probably saw this coming
You probably saw this coming You're so smart that way And your kisses are so numbing Even though they're fake Thinking of you makes me shake With a feeling so unusual My heart is yours to take I know that sounds so typical Dont know what else is acceptable To tell you how I feel Even if its senseless babble The feeling is still real So tell me how I should deal Since you're such a know it all Your cold heart of steel Couldn't comprehend such a fall Make it into a shall Wrap it round your neck Then go off and have a ball While I'm passed out on the deck And wish I'd just go to heck Too innocent to say hell So you kissed m

It hurts.
Do I care about people? Do I care about names? Do I care about you, And all of your stupid games? Do I care about love? Do I care about time? And why do I feel I have to make this song rhyme? I tried to just lay here And stare at the wall But theres something in my head And now I'm standing in the hall Forgive me if I make no sense Emotions they are quite intense And forgive me if I speak in rhymes I'm just making up these lines Aren't I pretty enough for you? Don't I mean enough to screw? Am I really so different? Even though I'm not like you? I tried to tell you This time for real Yeah I really did, too But who really

Forever
The days I spend waiting Seem like an eternity And the time I spend with you The minutes, the hours, the days They always seem to slip away Faster than I can say Forever... Stay with me Forever... And if it can't be That we're together eternally At least tell me this You'll stay with me in this bliss Until the day You're pulled away And dream of me then Because I know I will So hope this never ends Because I know I will I know I will Forever... Stay with me Forever... and ever, and ever, we belong together, Forever.

Pessimist
You all say I'm pessimistic I think you're the ones with no hope I just want love I just want things to work You're the ones who say just leave it Just let it go, move on Find a new one There's no hope for this But I say no I say don't let it be so I won't let go I'm happy here, you know And you call me a pessimist? Who's the one who must have missed The happiness And all the bliss It keeps me here And I fear Moving on There's just no one No one to replace such a girl No one to refill my world I just want to be with you again And somehow I'm the pessimist? I hope for a day When you'll smile and say 'Hey, wanna try it

So
I haven't hadly updated this page in awhile, once again.  But let me just say, life as of late (meaning, the last few months) has been one giant drama-fest.  I'm talking like, daily emotional rollercoaster.  Yeah.  So needless to say I've been feeling far too neurotic and depressed to really do anything worth mentioning. But!  I met a new girl who gave me a new perspective on things, AND I got a new job!  I'm going to meet with my new boss in about an hour.  So yeah, suddenly life isn't so bad. But I thought I should update this thing just for the hell of it. So who else thinks it would be super fun to make like a Pillows-esque rock band?

Hmm, wow.
So it's been almost a year since I last updated this thing.  And a pretty damn long time since I've submitted anything. It's funny how priorities change and time flies by. But I wrote something new today, I hope you enjoy it. It's different.  And very personal.  Please leave me all kinds of comments if you like it, and same goes if you don't, I'm always willing to listen to constructive criticism.

Yeah, random update.
Since it's been about, oh... 4 or 5 months since I last updated this thing? Yeah I dunno.  My life has been pretty uneventful in the last few months.  Nothing really worth writing about. Until today.  I was suddenly full of inspiration due to a series of events over the last few days that have made me full of emotions and thoughts that I felt a need to put into words.  I guess it helps me deal. So yeah, there you go.  I added a new ID pic too.  :]

Where have I been? I've been watching you awhile, yes....but I guess I havent been keeping up. I've rediscovered your work, and am reminded at why I fell in love with your lyrical poetry in the first place. Well done. I'm excited to see more.

-Vanessa

Yay, WI!

Hehe, well it's good to know people are reading my stuff. As much as I usually just treat this site a personal archive, since the number of people who tend to read it are few, it is nice once in awhile to be noticed.

And I'm really glad you like my work that much. It really makes me happy to know that people like it.

Hahaha, yay WI, huh? You a Wisconsinite, too? I hate it here. x]

WI is far better than MN....Where I'm from. A true Minnesotanite. It's lame here too.

I think I'm drawn to your lyrical stylings as they are very similar to my own. I'll be happy to continue to spread the word about your page, as well. You really do seem to have a lot going for you, and as far as personal archives go, I understand that one. The readers and commenters...those are a plus.

:0)

Hope to read more soon.

Keep in touch!

Weet.

Oh, I see. MN doesn't seem like too bad of a place, but then again the only part I've actually been to is Minneapolis. And I was only there once for a concert. And once when I was pretty young when I went to MOA. WI is pretty boring, but then again I suppose it's all a matter of perspective. I do have some good times here.

I see. Yeah, there are some similarities. I like what I've read of yours too. Sorry I don't comment or anything, I'm really no on DA much anymore besides to post something on occasion. The last few days are an exception. A lot going for me, you say? Hmm. I guess I never really took myself that seriously, but maybe I should for once. Thanks though, I'm glad you think so. :]

Hey. :] Yeah, it's been ages since I've been on DA. Life's been uneventful for quite some time and not really worth writing about. Until now. Hehe.
