All But Me

I see your face behind the camera
You look the same
But even through the frame
I see a mask that you wear
You try to hide it with your hair
But the answer hides in your smile too
No matter how hard you try to
The sadness still hides behind
Do you still wish you were mine
A wish that will never come true
I will never come back to you
A nightmare I don’t want to dream
Without you I am now flying free
You can have all of it but me
I will never return
Not after feeling your burn
The scar still remains
You can hide behind those picture frames
But the truth is still evident
You’re still swimming in a sea of regret
Keep flashing that smile all around
But you still live in a lonely town
I would feel remose and pity
But not after what you did to me
I have nothing left to feel
Because I have already healed
I hope one day you do the same
Instead of hiding behind that picture frame
With that smile so fake
Losing me will always be your biggest mistake

Dream

It’s too early in the morning
The sun is still asleep
I shut my eyes wanting to dream again
The last one I didn’t want it to end
It was such a beautiful scene
You were there with me as you always are
With you in my dreams you don’t feel so far
And because you were there it was the perfect dream
Our hands and lips were locked under falling snow
Yet the warmth of our hearts kept us from feeling cold
The lights around reminded us Christmas was near
But my present was already here
It was having you in my sweet embrace
Seeing your beautiful face
Brought a perfect happiness
For that moment I knew no sadness
But like all good things it had to end
I hope to dream that dream again
Because you give me a reason to breathe
You are the only one I’ll ever truly need
You’re all that I’ll ever think about
And dream about

Gone

maybe
just maybe
i am the one who is wrong
i am the one who should be gone
but instead it was you
you sealed the door shut
locked it and left the key
a broken key left for me to see
lying here in my hand
feeling like a broken man
trying to find reasons to understand
but instead
it was me all along
i am the one who is wrong
i am the one who should be gone
but instead it was you
you turned your back when it was really me
left me with a broken key
i could have said better things
but those words are all dreams
because none them will ever come true
since i am the one who lost you
because it was me all along
i am the one who is wrong
i am the one who should be gone
but instead it was you
and now i am left with the what if verse
all of this couldn’t have gone any worse
because now i am the one who is left here
picking up the pieces from this nightmare
when it was me all along
i am the one who is wrong
i am the one who should be gone
