The Ponytail Parade


three sleepless nights

this isn't how it's supposed to be

but you're so good at taking your time

to give back to me

I will wait for you forever

if you would just ask me

I thought that I could change you

but you changed me

it doesn't feel right

holding someone else's hand

together on phone lines

and living at two opposite ends

it scares me to think that you could find takers

other than me and better than me

but your head is elsewhere

and I'm talking enough for both of us

when will you see it's not so easy for me

you're careless and whispered

insulting and bruising

and I thought that you said

things were improving

these laces are untied

but my feet are still walking away

(I fall from your eyes. Your eyes I trusted. You said forever)

I never thought you could say these words

is this really happening

(don't say that we can still be friends)

erase my name from this page

how can you take all these days

(what is inside me, what have I done)

and throw them away,

(is this the only way that you will notice me)

as I sit here waiting for you

(dead words for closed ears, all this is sung for you)

I stay up nights

(if you are still pretending this is what's right)

until stars leave the sky

(why can you look at me can you only see)

knowing what my dreams can take away

(sides, your side, can take away)

walk away from me

this night is done
