sounds of a piano
in another room
bittersweet twinklings
bloom in the things
I will never reach
how can you miss
something you've never had?
how can the things you do
keep me up at night?
I wish now I had never made a start
the sadness is just to real
it's for sale in a newspaper ad
along with my heart

slamming
around my room
I want to do
something permanent
something maybe you'll remember me for
scamming
myself for a cheap place in your heart
something that's a determinant
something that helps me
helps me to make a move

how can you miss
something you've never had?
how can the things you do
keep me up at night?
I wish now I had never made a start
the sadness is just too real
it's for sale in a newspaper ad
along with my heart

I fall asleep in my arms
cold and in my place
I watch the stars slowly flicker and die out
falling on my face
oblivious to my charms
wherever they may hide
inside my heart
but I accept the glow
and it lights me up
and the sunrise is what makes me feel alive
I know
and I slowly drink the lemon
from the sun's drinking cup
