prison break night owl

dissected a nightmare
found my conscience
drugged and out of touch
i only want to wrap myself around your waist late at night
lay me down, even if i dont sleep
hit and miss(ing) the zzz's on the snoozzze 
my eyelids are heavy but my head is floating away
going stead(I.L.Y.) down the aisle
kept my hands on the clock
wrist watch(er)
sneaking through bedroom windows till the day i die.
matched the way my fingers type to the sound of my heartbeat
hung myself out to dry on the telephone line
ive got your voice ringing in my ears and on my fingers

sometimes i feel every mile between us.  they all catch up to me at once.  under my eyes and stuck in the back of my throat.  i've gotta sleep just to dream about you.

miss you
love you

baby steps

there's a reason your smile feels so much like at home
got lost in my eyelids
followed the light to from your teeth
our lips matched
roadmaps for the soul
couldn't get you out of my mind even when i tried
(the pills didn't help either)
from friendship bracelets to wedding rings
i'm tired of everything and everyone but you
count my mistakes with you on one wrist
but i wont turn your smile upside down again
wore out the latest excuses
just to come out with a clean conscience
hearts waiting on eachother
time won't stop us now
don't know how else to say it.

i just wanna love you the way you make me love my smile

need to be needed

found an addiction to bright eyes and high hopes
no one gets inside this head without a passport
got a sharp tongue i keep pressed to the inside of my wrist
shot your love straight through my veins
going strong till the sun rises
gap tooth(less) smile
left my vanity in the past with my twin in the mirror
took a breath between twin 11's (11:11 wishes)
from the middle coast to the west coast
committed myself to commitment
asylum for frauds and liars
need to be need(y)ed

i want you to flip my head inside out so its finally right side up

the truth is

only you make my chest explode with happiness.

you put the US in trUSt

took a red eye straight to your heart
round trip  with window seats 
carved our names in the skyline
got sick
you're the cure
promises like the rings around my eyes
tried/tired and true (take your pick)
gotta say
you've tried the hardest with me so far

she gets me but i don't get why i'm so lucky.

my head is spinning
took my pills
you cant escape my mind
hiding behind eyelids and eyelashes
true love valentines
youre the best ive ever known
ive got withdrawl pains 
cant get used to (not) sleeping alone
i was made to be next to you
i wont have it any other way
cant go back to

when you tell me you love me, i know you mean it.  you're not a liar and you're not a fake. you're everything i've ever needed and more.

without you...

i'm just (a) hopeless (romantic)

to you

ive always had a morbid fascination with proving how much i care
cut me open
this heart only beats for you
got a death threat on my chest
sometimes i get so lonely the world stops spinning
my nerves are shot with loneliness 
got a god complex (i dont believe in much)
make the stars jealous with the way falling for you
i l(d)ie a little bit when i'm not talking to you
miss the way you get me

just because i dont sleep doesnt mean i dont dream about you.
