Farewell My Youth
Ive become the image of my Mom
I swore Id never be
When I look into the mirror
I see Mom looking back at me.
I wore that shirt you gave me
to that party you didnt know I went to
that was my little way of including you
and I laughed about all the promises we broke.
I dont know
I don't know why some people get on like they do
and I don't know when the next time may be that I see you
and I don't know where this path will go
and I don't think I would like to know
so I'll just take the highs with the lows.
Under your wing
Just a little bit more
But you showed me the door
My heart hit the floor.
Yeah, I want in your bed
Ill stay right out of your head
I wont meet mother you wont need Dad
I dont have to hear when youre mad.
Maybe I like it when youre bad
Yeah maybe I like it when youre bad.
How am I a supposed to find you
when lifetime after lifetime
our faces keep on changing
But, I 'll know you by those blue eyes again.
Queen of the Anthill
Sue sat in front of me in math class
At 14, she had gray hairs
Fascinated, I pulled them out
Before I knew her name.
When I was broken she gave me a bed
When I was broken she lent me her cat
When I was broken she said,
Baby, you know everyone hurts,
Now its time to get your ass back to work.
Someone You Knew
Cut down so many trees
Bringin nature to her knees
Stuck inside this big wood house
Cant find the keys.
Walk on the Grass
I got fortunes to amass before the deadlines past
Better get off yer ass and take a walk on the grass.
Looking back on the string of events
I can see the spark that lit the flame
Its easy to go point the finger
But I know that Im to blame.
