Mary Had A Little Lamb (Revisited)

Mary had a little lamb
Or at least
That’s the word on the street
It would’ve been sweet
If it hadn’t been for you
Kids her age would laugh at her
They would make fun of her
Because she wasn’t like them
But no one really knew her
No one really cared
No one had a chance either
How could they
She suddenly disappeared
Now kids laugh no more
Word on the street
Mary had a little lamb
Buried together
Six feet under the playground sand

People Say

People say
Home is
Where the heart is
But my heart
It is broken
My home
It is no more
The windows
Are shattered
The door
You left it
Arms wide open
While my eyes
Were shut
Like my mouth
Cause some words
Are better left
Unspoken
Yet I left
Never told him
Never saw him
Never needed to
Out of sight
Out of mind
That’s exactly what

Somewhere Only We Know

Let’s go somewhere no one knows
Some place only we know
Somewhere we can finally be
Together young and wild and free
Let’s go somewhere no one knows
Somewhere only we know
Forget about the men I’ve had
All the girls you’ve dated
No one’s here but you and me
So let’s be young, wild and free
Let’s go somewhere no one knows
Some place not even he knows
We can talk like it’s just us
But I know this may not be enough
Let’s go somewhere no one knows
Some place not even she knows
We can pour our hearts out finally
Just focus on you and me
Let’s go somewhere no one knows
Somewhere only we know

Call Me One Last Time

Call me at midnight
While she’s asleep
I’ll wait for you here
I know you want to
I know it’s wrong
But why oh why
Does it feel so right
We keep telling ourselves
It’d be the last time
What the fuck is it
With you and me
We keep coming back
To this conclusion
Yet we fool ourselves
Into thinking it’s okay
To torture the both of us
Maybe we’re too weak
Too much in denial
Too old to let go
Of this feeling
We thought
We’d never have again
Whatever it is
Just call me one last time
Tell me everything we both
Would like to hear
Just one last time

Forget Me

When you wake up in the morning
The light gently touches your face
You turn to the other side
Of the bed I used to sleep on
Please don’t forget to forget me
When you turn on the shower
Step into the hot water
With nobody to rub your back
The lavender scented shower gel
Please don’t forget to forget me
When you drink your very first
Cup of freshly brewed coffee
Your first cigarette of the day
Please don’t forget to forget me
When you get yourself dressed
Ready to head to work
There’s nobody to kiss you goodbye
Please don’t forget to forget me
When you hear something exciting
Or even something sad
You want to call someone
But I won’t be there to pick up
Nor will I answer your message
Please don’t forget to forget me today
