Everyone's a critic And everyone knows The closest thing to giving up Is never getting close To the things that make us hunger The things that make us whole If we're hiding our passion Then nothing will happen Until we let them go I've been growing tired of these walls They resonate the silence that I feel I used to fill them with no one at all But they're not coming back, no Everyone's a liar And everyone knows The closest thing to self defeat Is never getting close To the ones that make us stronger The ones that make us whole We bridle compassion In darkest of fashion From everyone we know
West 03:46
What a lovely mess you've made What a sad display of selfishness Did you really think this through? Are you better off without her? Go west young man and you will find A better way to sort this out The rest, you'll see, will come in time Better days are yet to come Better days are yet to come So look ahead What a frail masquerade Such a desperate act full of regret But she's had time to think this through And now they're better off without you This is the house that you once slept in But it's not yours anymore And now sight of your reflection Is not the man you were before The simple things you took for granted You thought you'd never live without But now they're gone
For Raina 04:12
July 12, 2013 at 7:21pm I laid my eyes on you for the first time And as I held you in my arms I felt a swelling in my chest My life changed in an instant And that's when I knew You'll get the best from me and I promise that the love I have Will never go away I may never hit the mark But just know I'm on my way You'll get the best from me I'll be present, I'll be as fair as I can I'll be someone you can turn to Of course I wonder who you'll be someday But that's completely up to you Daughter don't be afraid to grow up And be who you are And don't apologize for being you There'll be marks and scars and broken hearts to come But we'll learn to laugh and love Along the way I'm sure I'll lose your trust a time or two But then as I write these words I hope you know
**The original version of this song appeared on Old Stories** When the Good Lord says its done then its done When the Good Lord says you're gone then you're gone When the Good Lord says its all wrapped up And he gives his gift, fills us up with hope Takes it back again He takes it back again When the good wife says she's done then she's done When the good wife says she's gone then she's gone When the good wife's shit is all packed up And she takes these kids and she leaves her note She'll be back again But will she be back again? She's gone But will she be back again? Oh God, I've lost everything
