What's It Gonna Take?

I belong in the crowd.
Too tired to explain nothing.
It took an entire five minutes to put an end to it all.
And it only took 16 years to grow up.
All along I thought you would break my heart, but since we all know it was already broken, you surprised me and ended up putting just a little bit of it back together.
The world will still spins while I'm sleeping.
And the glory of it is there is nothing I can do to change it.
A sober city.
I've completely lost count.
I guess you could say that I finally made it.
It's warming up outside. I don't know if I'm ready.
I've never wanted to be alone so much.
When the thunder shook the city and the rain hit my face, I realized.
There's only one heart beating in this chest of mine.
I hate surprises.
It bothers me only because it doesn't bother you at all.
I just can't lose sight of what I need.
I'm ready to sit in the sun alone. And when the time comes I can watch the storm.
Maybe my bad memory is a blessing.
An empty bed doesn't sound so bad.


It's not raining. But it might as well.
I'll read it over and over.
Until I know the the words like I know my name.
And that one chance will just stay frozen in reality.
He'll never know.
I want to surprise you.
Take me out? Just the two of us?
You've always been so full of promises.
But I know you have good intentions.
You always made me feel special.
Unlike him and him and the other hims.
My mother always got you confused with the others.
They always say mothers know best.
I'll dress up.
And sure, you can treat me.
I'll just ask one thing of you, change it all.
Lights, camera, action.
Salty shoes say it best.
Home away from home away from home away.
So far away I forgot where I came from.
Well almost.
Why do we wait in lines when we don't even know what we're waiting for?
I'm ready to meet someone who is truly self sufficient.
That tune became so familiar.
my secrets have been told.
He's not a blue or white collar. He's a wet collar, a hard worker.
I don't regret that piece of cake.
I want another one.
And finally, I'm not ashamed.
