In Code Maybe my eyes don’t lie. Is that why you look at me like it’s my confession? All sin and sacrifice, that’s just the way I taste when you feed the tension. Oh, hear me out. Oh, hear me out. I lie when I say 'I’m fine. Yeah, the pain makes sense. I'll get over it.' I lie and the consequence is you’ll never know what you’ll never get by tearing me all down. This only feels right now but I know it’s not the same, just the same intention. I miss you for your mind and body goes with it, but for the apprehension. Oh, hear me out. Oh, hear me out. I lie when I say 'I’m fine. Yeah, the pain makes sense. I'll get over it.' I lie and the consequence is you’ll never know what you’ll never get by tearing me all down for you. Somebody had to go and be honest. Be honest. Somebody had to go and sing nothing but the truth in code. Oh, hear me out. Oh, hear me out. I lie when I say 'I’m fine. Yeah, the pain makes sense. I'll get over it.' I lie and the consequence is you’ll never know what you’ll never get by tearing me all down for you, for you, for you.

Here goes nothing Here goes everything in my simple mind Yeah, there used to be a time I’d trade it all for what you think I'd hope for lies I understand you’d be surprised You were bound to be No, you never were expecting anything at all from me You're too deep, is that why you think you know me? Is that why you read my simple mind and still don’t find whatever you think you need Fight or flight if ever we two should meet and someday might That’s what really bothered me: you never really understanding If I obsess, you win for relentlessness We come undone by process of your denigration How the hell were we supposed to be? You're too deep, is that why you think you know me? Is that why you read my simple mind and still don’t find whatever you think you need All the words you can have for nothing For what it’s worth, you have everything I might have what we had in common But, you know me... As we live a life of ease, every one of us has all we need You're too deep, is that why you think you know me? Is that why you read my simple mind and still don’t find whatever you think you need

This Time I used to think that it was only me the way my world collides with every truth I seek and how I couldn’t keep myself from falling deep into the waiting void that I have left in me You used to think that it was only you the way my world revolved around the things you do and how I couldn’t keep myself from falling through into the waiting void and how that still seems true If I was made to fly and you were gone could I, without the strings you tie, make it and make it alone this time I’ve never come this far I used to keep a little piece of mind I kept it tucked behind my ear a little light that I could ride away upon in troubled times it’s just another part of me that I can’t find I’ve never come this far but I know I want to stay here for the moment I can see why you had to let me feel this way I wouldn’t cry if I didn’t know that I could have been here yesterday but I wouldn’t have tried without you on my side, if you hadn’t let me go and you didn’t want to know if I was... made to fly and you were gone could I, without the strings you tie, make it and make it alone this time

Ever since and always waiting lost the chance to do what we never did We'll curse ourselves for hesitating but, nevermore let fear forbid Because, maybe we were closer than we think Still, no one touched and the suspense was killing me It was only love, only lust, only innocence It was only real, only right, only wondering if ever since Maybe we were hoping things we couldn’t let our mouths admit Waiting on momentum to get caught up in the thrill of it But, funny how that moment never came To do what everybody said would happen anyway It was only love, only lust, only innocence It was only real, only right, only wondering if ever since I heard your back I’m hoping that we could go back and take our time and finally find out why It was only love, only lust, only innocence It was only real, only right, only wondering if ever since

I’m this way because I’m cold, cold enough to know knowing does no good. I’m this way because I’m wrong, wrong to let it end, end the way it should. If you’re laying down your arms, lie down and be done because lying is what we’ll do. Just to wait for you takes all my strength and I won’t. Because, nobody breaks the way I do and I don’t think I want me to I’m this way when I wake up, up before the dawn. It’s dawning on me now. I’m this way because you’re not. Not because I care. Caring is not allowed If you’re saying you can’t take the weight of this then, maybe, wait until I’m gone It’s your fault I can’t stay… stay asleep inside… Whose side did you take…taking all my time… it’s time to be awake making up my mind Just to wait for you takes all my strength and I won’t Because, nobody breaks the way I do I'm this way and you won't budge I'll be here, you'll be fine

Somebody has to surface - come from under your skin Somebody has to bear down for his life to begin May he strengthen on his way. Let him know, if he could stay, I hope to meet him I hope to see that day Somebody has to sleep here in the fold of our arms Somebody has to be here so we know who we are May he come within our grasp, take our hands and hold them fast I hope to meet him. I hope to hear his laugh. Here we are in tiny hands They carry our tiny beating hearts Somebody has to grow up, be a brilliant young man Somebody has to trust love, be as strong as we can When the will of love is done may that sorrow never come I want to meet you. I want to meet you, son Here we are in tiny hands They carry our tiny beating hearts

I’m hanging around I’m holding a candle ‘til I burn it out of my mind Legions can’t tear me away from inching inside of you, waiting until it’s enough to say: I don’t expect to hold you just yet But, I know your fears and I’m hopeful and I’m here I don’t need to go I give you my word you’ll be the first and the last to know. I don’t expect to hold you just yet But, I will remain until chance has come around again Open your door. I’m tired of waiting outside of your world, quietly biding my time ‘til you’re full of hope again. I go where my love is found that’s why I’m hanging around …outside of your door and I’ve got my reasons for wanting this love that I’m waiting for I don’t expect to leave here alone anymore Open your door. I’m tired of waiting outside of your world, quietly biding my time ‘til you’re full of hope again. I go where my love is found. That’s why I’m hanging around

The moment you took the stage I was yours Every syllable on your tongue touched my nerves Between what you sang and what I heard you threw me I know every thought inside your head You dream like me but play the dream instead I’m waking up and going back to bed without it On & on, the way you play me On & on, I’m blown away I could have a million words inside my mouth But I’m tongue tied paralyzed in doubt Maybe your lips on mine could ease them out On & on, on & on, I’m blown away I’m soaking in the memory Drinking up words that pulse and ring You’re shaking up every single part of me On & on, the way you play me On & on, I’m blown away Hey, I want you alone there’s nobody else, nobody else Hey, I want you alone there’s nobody else, nobody else I could have a million words inside my mouth But I’m tongue tied paralyzed in doubt Maybe your lips on mine could ease them out On & on, on & on, I’m blown away

‘Don’t kid yourself’ isn’t that what we said? Be happy and stupid on lies that you’re fed. So quit looking at me like I meant what I said. No, I don’t want to do something I could regret. How noble and true, how absurd could I get? If I wanted to leave, why haven’t I left? Some things are good and some true. Speak of the devil, it’s you. ‘Don’t kid yourself’ isn’t that what they say when you’re living a lie ‘Don’t kid yourself’ like there’s no greater good than the good in goodbye How you’re under my skin is over my head. I left you at least twenty feet from the bed. If I don’t want to leave, could you leave me instead? There’s no use in taking it slow For something you already know. I’m left alone with you-the only living proof that you’re here when there’s nobody left but the truth ‘Don’t kid yourself’ isn’t that what they say when you’re living a lie ‘Don’t kid yourself’ and they’ll leave you alone with the good in goodbye ‘Don’t kid yourself’ isn’t that what they say when you’re living a lie ‘Don’t kid yourself’ and they’ll leave you to mourn all the good in goodbye Goodbye

As soon as we’ve all been figured out and all the good honesty allows is here is waiting…is here Even as stars fall into place… what are the odds for we have made mistakes. You know how it happens. Tell the world we’re fine with all our imperfections Good enough for us Put complications out of mind Pull darkest memories from mine They’re done. We don’t need reminding. Tell the world we’re fine with all our imperfections Good enough for us I may be unworthy. Maybe I don’t deserve this sign. What have I done to make this right? Tell me we’ve made it. Both of us strengthened by time well spent. Are we then content to wonder what it’s like to lose our imperfections? Good enough for us.

about

Laura Marie San Antonio, Texas

Now the reason we're here
Every man, every woman
Is to help each other
Stand by each other
When love walks in the room
Everybody stand up
Oh it's good, good good
Say I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you - The Pretenders

At some point in my life, I heard this song and decided (before I knew I decided) that my life purpose was to send a "message of love". Be <3
