A First Attempt At Song Lyric Writing

Love Hate Song

So cold without you stealing the covers
bed so small without you taking up half
never daring to call ourselves lovers
a night warmed with scotch whiskey and decaf

this time its too much, I can't keep it in
the silence we keep, it breaks and we fight
i'm asking too much, you're asking much more
the way these things go, it isn't alright

it's never been right

not allowed to speak
not allowed to dream
you tell me I'm weak
I should live as steam
sorry I'm human
sorry I care
sorry I love you
oh, how could I dare?

I dreamt about you once again last night
I'd control it if you could teach me how
in the grass in the park in broad daylight
you loved me then as I despise you now

I wonder sometimes if you remember
if you even recall the way it was
you stayed with me that week in December
you cared for me the way no one else does

not allowed to speak
not allowed to dream
you tell me I'm weak
I should live as steam
sorry I'm human
sorry I care
sorry I love you
oh, how could I dare?

we never traveled, you and I
we never did much but talk
you came to me with your ideas
we had plans written in chalk

washed away, effaced, rubbed out
all that is life put to rout

we still talk it seems when you wish it so
toss me crumbs of hope to keep me breathing
you keep me from thinking that I can go
with nothing there to consider leaving

maybe you've just got more to you than I
You're stronger than I am, so fine: I give
your expectations of me are too high
you can go through life, but I want to live

just leave me to live

not allowed to speak
not allowed to dream
you tell me I'm weak
I should live as steam
sorry I'm human
sorry I care
sorry I love you
a gift that's so rare

it can't be spoken
profaned by your lips
well that's what you think

I don't anymore.
