Stuck

44394-bigthumbnail

When you walked away, tell me
Did you play your final hand?
Does the air still taste the same
As you took your final stand?

Will have to wait and see
The air is frozen between us
And I don’t know who to be
What is there really left for me?

I laid my hopes down to rest
Now it seems they’ve gone to hide
And now that there’s nothing left
I’m watching with two empty eyes

I signed myself away that day
These steps don’t seem the same
While you’re looking down on me
Do you recall my name?

A tear that spreads a story
Takes its time to fall
Wandering in memory
Roaming familiar halls

Consumed by the past
The ghost of me inside
I would try to reach for him
But he’s already died

With all the pain that latches on
And drives me to the ground
I couldn’t tell you anything
I’m too stuck inside the now

The spark of self-defeat
Is like a beacon deep inside
Now I’m stuck here waiting
Collecting all the tears I’ve cried

I’ve hit so many walls
They all seems the same to me
Been trying for a while now
And I don’t know who to be

It’s when you drive that blade through
My eyes lose their way of life
What began so beautiful
Has ended with a knife

It’s when I feel that prick inside
Unleashing all the pain
It’s that time of knowing
Things will never be the same

The Taste of Loss

Title: The Taste of Loss 

I painted a picture today
All that I wanted to see
All of my hopes for tomorrow
A replica of all that’s me

Call me selfish; I call it human nature

Once you’ve had a taste of what you want
The addiction is simply too much to let go

Feel it race throughout your veins
It’s retribution, a hold on names
Cause it feels so good coming in
And I’m forgetting what’s right

My eyes are filled with new highs
And the lies keep on flowing
So take a taste cause I’m to die for
I’m the poison that’s worth the kill

Tomorrow means nothing
Those scars on your skin carry my name
I’m the reminder of when you let go
The reminder of something less

I am the shadow of your life
The negative lace in every fall
Cause without me there was nothing
But with pain I’m there to call

So if you need me- look aside
Cause without me- You’re walking blind
And with me- you can’t feel a thing
I slash your pride with every sting

So look away
I’m going to haunt your dreams
I’m every nightmare you can think
I’ll bring you to your knees

And lick my lips to taste the loss

Meg Myers- Desire

I like this song because it is so based around passion and the flair of lust and desire. It takes the foundation of human feelings and drives lyrics that hit home for people who are looking for satisfaction in one way or another.

It doesn’t hurt that the singer is quite pretty, but more importantly, I just love the lyrics.

 

 

Lyrics for “Desire”

Baby, I want to touch you
I wanna breathe into your will
See, I gotta hunt you
I gotta bring you to my hell
Baby, I wanna fuck you,
I WANNA FEEL YOU IN MY BONES
Boy, I’m gonna love YOU
I’M GONNA TEAR INTO YOUR SOUL

DESIRE, I’m hungry
I hope you feed me
how do you want me, how do you want me?
how do you want me, how do you want me?
how do you want me, how do you want me?
how do you want me, how do you want me?

Honey, I wanna break you
I wanna throw you to the hounds,
I gotta hurt you, I gotta hear it from your mouth
Boy, I wanna taste you, I wanna skin you with my tongue
I’m gonna kill you,
I’M GONNA LAY YOU IN THE GROUND

DESIRE, I’m hungry
I hope you feed me
how do you want me, how do you want me?
how do you want me, how do you want me?
how do you want me, how do you want me?
how do you want me, how do you want me?

I wanna feel YOU, I want it ALL
I wanna feel YOU, I want it ALL

[Guitar strings]

how do you want me, how do you want me?
how do you want me, how do you want me?
how do you want me, how do you want me?
how do you want me, how do you want me?

Broken

Title: Broken

The pulse of a moment
Seethes beneath my skin
The faded color of blue
Imbued across my wrist

I felt for something
I’ve been trying too long
As the sun began to set
I watched my shadow run away

The taste of the air
Brought a numb
And I can’t feel anymore

It’s the piercing moments
That choke the heart
That engrave failure
Prevent new starts

It’s the loss of breath
When you try to breathe
The loss inside
All that’s left to be

It’s the fist of hair
It’s the break of nails
And a heart that’s faded
Forever pale

I could try to write my story
But I can barely stand

My eyes are twisted misery
Painting a world of misfortune
In a variety of color
It’s when the colors look the same
The good and bad composed of pain
It makes you wonder
What may come tomorrow?

I pulled the knife out from my back
The pain kept coming anyway
I laid it down at my side
And felt the wind carry me away

If I bite my tongue for a chance
Just to say what I need to say
Yet, I’m afraid I can’t

I’d rather swallow, and keep it all in

Pulse

Title: Pulse

I sat along your bedside;
I felt your feigning pulse
I heard them read predictions
While hoping they were false

I watched you drift away
A victim of life’s frailty
I wished to offer answers;
But could only offer me

I held your hand with mine
The warmth between the two
Watching the day whisk away
Behind the different shades of blue

I caught your eyes
To insure care
To let you know
That I was there

I would be, until the end

Cause it’s the essence of a moment
Time can change the pace
And I wouldn’t want to be alone
With the end to face

The shadows of the other side
Tickled the blankets, prophesied

Cause the end of the road;
The uncaught fate
The moment in brush;
Just lying in wait

The card that would play no matter the plan
Cause some things are just meant to be

Strength isn’t how hard you fight;
It’s embracing what kept the day through the nights
So as you breathe remember me

Cause I’ll walk with you to that gate

Stare our maker in the eye;
Until your final embrace
And then the peace; the quiet
The lay that surpasses the land

I will wait along your side
As the pulse fades from your hand.
