Look at me and tell me that you still know me
my people were your people
what happened to forever ?
I used to act like a little kid being told that toys r us was our next stop
“don’t show too much”
But it all switched up,
they don’t want us to see this through
i say let’s be the odd ones out
you know i got you and you got me right?
Never really dawned on me that forever was never and it was all just now
mishandled the feeling
stirred it up created a BIG storm
i got caught up by it
i found you.
In search of a rainbow and well you was just in search of a “quick fix” you know the ones you find because its convenient.
For years i’ve had my own back
you stripped me naked to the point were
i could see my own pain,
my own disaster
my own storm was taking its turn on me.
Can i call you my storm?
not thinking about the outcome
not thinking about what’s going to happen after
blinded by the nice gestures
forgetting that times and people do change.
Letting go isn’t easy
so caught up in the memory that we forget the reality,
two wrongs don’t make a right do they?
Maybe i got my calculations wrong.
Add one subtract two
we’re doomed from the start.
Leave your ego at the door
come as you are
maybe i can see through you and you can tell me who you are
can’t let the old you die because that’s all i know
can’t replace you because you’re the only wrong i know.
so tell me how can i let this go ?
We take separate roads
not knowing where we’ll go
you go left i go right
hoping to meet again
hoping life does its thing and connects us again
maybe this time we won’t subtract too much and maybe learn how to add
you’re still my storm
i calm you down just to see the rainbow.
You go left i go right
but we still end up on the same finishing line.
