Love the Way You Lie ~ Part II

On the first page of our story
The future seemed so bright
Then this thing turned out so evil
I don’t know why I’m still surprised
Even angels have their wicked schemes
And you take that to new extremes
But you’ll always be my hero
Even though you’ve lost your mind

Just gonna stand there and watch me burn?
But that’s alright because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry?
But that’s alright because I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie
Ohhh, I love the way you lie

Now there’s gravel in our voices
Glass is shattered from the fight
And this tug of war, you’ll always win
Even when I’m right
‘Cause you feed me fables from your head
With violent words and empty threats
And it’s sick that all these battles
Are what keeps me satisfied

Just gonna stand there and watch me burn?
But that’s alright because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry?
But that’s alright because I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie
Ohhh, I love the way you lie

So maybe I’m a masochist
I try to run but I don’t wanna ever leave
Til the walls are goin’ up
In smoke with all our memories

It’s morning, you wake, a sun ray hits your face
Smeared makeup as we lay in the wake of destruction
Shhh,
hush baby,
speak softly,
tell me you’re awfully sorry
That you pushed me into the coffee table last night
So I can push you off me!
Try and touch me so I can scream at you not to touch me
Run out the room and I’ll follow you like a lost puppy
Baby,
without you,
I’m nothing,
I’m so lost,
hug me
Then tell me how ugly I am, but that you’ll always love me
Then after that, shove me,
in the aftermath of the
Destructive path that we’re on, two psychopaths but we
Know that no matter how many knives we put in each other’s backs
That we’ll have each other’s backs, ‘
cause we’re that lucky
Together, we move mountains,
let’s not make mountains out of molehills,
You hit me twice, yeah, but who’s countin’?
I may have hit you three times, I’m startin’ to lose count
But together, we’ll live forever, we found the youth fountain
Our love is crazy, we’re nuts, but I refused counsellin’
This house is too huge, if you move out I’ll burn all two thousand
Square feet of it to the ground, ain’t shit you can do about it
With you I’m in my fuckin’ mind, without you, I’m out it

Just gonna stand there and watch me burn?
But that’s alright because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry?
But that’s alright because
I love the way you lie…

Take Care

I know you’ve been hurt by someone else
I can tell by the way you carry yourself
If you let me, here’s what I’ll do
I’ll take care of you
I’ve loved and I’ve lost

I’ve asked about you and they’ve told me things
But my mind didn’t change, I still the feel the same
What’s a life with no fun? please don’t be so ashamed
I’ve had mine, you’ve had yours, we both know
We know, they don’t get you like I will
My only wish is I die real
Cause that truth hurts, and those lies heal
And you can’t sleep thinking that he lies still
So you cry still, tears all in the pillow case
Big girls all get a little taste
Pushing me away so I give her space
Dealing with a heart that I didn’t break
I’ll be there for you, I will care for you
I keep thinking you just don’t know
Try to run from that, say you’re done with that
On your face girl, it just don’t show
When you’re ready, just say you’re ready
When all the baggage just ain’t as heavy
And the parties over, just don’t forget me
We’ll change the pace and we’ll just go slow
Won’t ever have to worry,
You won’t ever have to hide
If you’ve seen all my mistakes
So look me in my eyes

Cause if you let me, here’s what I’ll do
I’ll take care of you
I’ve loved and I’ve lost

It’s my birthday, I get high if I want to
Can’t deny that I want you, but I lie if have to
Cause you don’t say you love me
To your friend when they ask you
Even though we both know that you do (you do)
One time, been in love one time
You and all your girls in the club one time
All so convinced that you’re following your heart
Cause your mind don’t control what it does sometimes
We all have our nights though, don’t be so ashamed
I’ve had mine, you’ve had yours, we both know
We know, you hate being alone
You ain’t the only one
You hate the fact that you bought the dream
And that they sold you one
You love your friends but somebody shoulda told you somethin’ to save you
Instead they said…

“Don’t tell me, I don’t care
If you hurt, I don’t tell you
You don’t care, if you’re true”

“Don’t tell me, I don’t care
If you hurt, I don’t tell you
You don’t care, if you’re true”

I know you’ve been hurt by someone else
I can tell by the way you carry yourself
If you let me, here’s what I’ll do
I’ll take care of you
I’ve loved and I’ve lost

A Change is Going to Come

I was born by the river in a little tent
Oh and just like the river I’ve been running ever since
It’s been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change is gonna come, oh yes it will

It’s been too hard living but I’m afraid to die
Cause I don’t know what’s up there beyond the sky
It’s been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change is gonna come, oh yes it will

I go to the movies and I go downtown
Somebody keep telling me don’t hang around
It’s been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change is gonna come, oh yes it will

Then I go to my brother
And I say “brother help me please”
But he winds up knocking me
Back down on my knees

Ohhhhhhhhh…..

There been times that I thought I couldn’t last for long
But now I think I’m able to carry on
It’s been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change is gonna come, oh yes it will

Snake Bite Sonnet

A lash of brightness catches you off guard

in childhood. It completes you. You change size

in dreams of smelly water, catch your eyes

impersonating something bright and hard

as sun and moon wear hot grooves in the sky

and you lurch toward conclusion. Here your strange,

illumined limbs betray you. You must change

unrestingly now. You swollen and sly,

must welcome turmoil as a central friend

who plies her fangs of difference through your heart.

And now you’re anyone’s to take apart.

And now you’re anyone’s to find and mend.

You will not understand, but will endure,

snakebit, and never dreaming of a cure.
