“NEVER HERE TO STAY’’

Plus, minus

Plus, minus

Give, take away

Give, take away

Never here to stay

Never here to stay

 

You just walked away,

You acted like it was all OK

 

Her words were muffled to you

 

You got your hearing back,

And then you chose to take it away again

 

Rumors are what took you away from her

That’s what she said

 

The words shot out of your mouth like bullets,

Hitting her in the heart,

Breaking it in half,

Shattering it to pieces

 

Tears were shedding from the dry river,

Now overflowing with pain

 

It was all fake since the day you two met

 

The question was beckoned,

The answer was given

 

happiness was spreads,

I was wondering what was going on in your head

 

You acted as if you didn’t even care

And the amount of guilt that you felt was the size of the thinnest hair

 

It all went so fast

 

Soon the happiness was ripped from her heart,

Leaving an empty space

 

The smile was abandoned from her face

 

Her heart was once again shattered,

The drop of a plate,

The crash of a vase

 

The heat of her tears melted me,

Turning my eyes into water

 

I tried so hard to keep it all in,

tried so hard so hard not to worry about what this will cause her to do

 

She’s ok

She’s ok

 

It’ll go away

it’ll go away

 

The pain won’t stay

The pain won’t stay

 

Maybe the pain won’t,

But the scar will

 

Every time I think about it,

It leaves me a cold chill

 

it freezes me,

And all I can do is stay still,

Afraid I’ll make the wrong choice

Afraid I’ll say the wrong thing

 

Everythings slipping away from my grip,

That I barely have any time to understand what’s happening

She’s ok, I think again

She would never leave me,

Is what I try to believe

 

I want to protect her,

I want us to be close forever

 

But I feel like everything’s at a distance,

Like everything’s losing its existence,

Everything’s losing its patience,

And, I want to run away, because


Nothing’s ever here to stay.
