Those watery eyes and that half-hearted grin
I can see the ocean that you’re drowning in
Starting in your lungs, then spilling out your throat
King and queen of our castles, our sympathy is a moat
Black and white aren’t different if you can see in color
Your heart and its shadow were made for each other
Do you hide your wars inside you so your blood won’t taint your foes?
The light beats darkness, isn’t that how the story goes?

Bright thinkers and light hearts aren’t for us
Is your heart heavy enough, Is your heart heavy enough?

(0:40)
Are you afraid of me?
Are you afraid of me?

(0:51)
The raindrops and your tears looked exactly alike
Washing away any blueprints to build a dike
But I had some waterproof plans for you
I saw your face light up as the world gained its hue

(1:02)
Every day it rained for a little while
The raindrops trickled right out of your smile
Down onto the pages that I wrote that day
You smudged the ink, but I guess that’s okay

(1:14)
I’ve lost more than I’ve ever had,
But I guess I’m glad
To have someone next to me
To tell me that I’m not mad
Have you ever felt mad?
Can you tell me what It feels like?
Let’s see if I can feel it
It probably hurts to try

(1:24)
Let’s take cover from the rain
I can see you’re dripping with pain
Imbued into what you can do
To make someone else’s dream come true

Nobody but you can know what you’re going through
Nobody but you can know, not even I do

(1:38)
Every day it rained for a little while
The raindrops trickled right out of your smile
Down onto the pages that I wrote that day
You smudged the ink, but I guess that’s okay

(1:50)
Are you an enemy?
Are you an enemy?

(2:00)
You’re safe, you’re safe,
The chafe the scarf made
On your heart will fall apart
I can feel it growing dark

I need someone to tell me that I’m not insane
Have you ever felt insane? Have you ever felt insane?

(2:11)
Here’s another path to take
It leads to the same place
But is it shame, shade or grace
That graces its cliff face
It tastes bitter at first
But sweetens at its worst
If you’re willing to believe
Evil does not equal me

(2:22)
Do you believe in enemies?
Nobody isn’t a friend to me
What you say isn’t what your telling me
Will you give me an identity?

I’m only a person if you give me a name
And a voice, and a face, and a place inside your brain

(2:34)
Are you a friend to me?
Are you a friend to me?

(2:45)
Every day it rained for a little while
The raindrops trickled right out of your smile
Down onto the pages that I wrote that day
You smudged the ink, but I guess that’s okay

(2:56)
Bright thinkers and light hearts aren’t for us
Is your heart heavy enough, Is your heart heavy enough?
Nobody but you can know what you’re going through
Nobody but you can know, not even I do
I need someone to tell me that I’m not insane
Have you ever felt insane? Have you ever felt insane?
I’m only a person if you give me a name
And a voice, and a face, and a place inside your brain

@WiispNightmare:
Thanks! I tried to convey messages in ways that aren't so vague. It's always bugged me how I have a habit of saying things like "I dropped my tissue on the pavement below" because then the line loses it's power. I guess I suceeded, cause when I'm vague it either sounds like I'm talking about crazy stuff or absolutely nothing.

@WildfireK: Well, because I know you, I know that nothing you write poems about mean nothing, honestly.
Pretty much every poem you write sounds super important and cool :D
