Everybody wants happiness. Nobody wants pain. But you cant have a rainbow. Without a little rain.

Skins stretched in forced smiles

because I don’t want to see me cry

And I would drive

for a thousand miles

just to see you smile at me like you did

just two months ago

I'm letting you go

…I’m trying to let go…

I’m giving you the chance

that you’ve wanted for years

hundred kisses, thousand lies

When we stared that night and you said

baby, please don’t hold so tight

Your hair was pressed against your face

soft slick smooth skin

wrinkled like I’d never seen it done

Enraged by years gone by

tears cried

red with the fact that I’ve told you lies

I look back to the beginning

and I find we’re near the end

I want to see you smile

just one more time again

that one sweet stretch of skin against my heartbreak;

it was the only bandaid I’ll ever have

I guess

I know

it only serves to show

that I’m still in love with you
