Shallow

Daydreaming nihilist. Code maniac with a coffee addiction. Music, movie buff. High functioning alcoholic.

Just what you want to hear

Just what you want to hear

I'll write to you a last time, then I have to go
The tree once lush with butterflies has ran its course
You thought I'm here to cling & wanted more
But just a chameleon that never shows
Closure is a fool's game

You need more of my skin, my smile, and my face
The mystery catches a man by his stranger tastes
You like yellow, high mellows and rosy tints
You don't need her, but what you need from it
Your secrets are out there

I fit into your puzzle, and stitch you up from tears
Unfold and step away from all your layers
He held you high until age swept him off your glare
She was high and low in her syringe of despair
I'm the family you never had

On my shoulders, you rest. I own this land
The tree is lush in bloom, the stars in my grasp
You didn't need her but what you need has unwrapped
The way you look at me in love is such a hopeless path
I no longer enjoy this game

So I write to you a last time, then I have to go
The tree once lush with butterflies has ran its course
You thought I'm here to cling & wanted more
But just a chameleon that never shows
Where will the next prey lay
