No, heaven's not a place that you go when you die
It's that moment in life when you touch her and you feel alive
So live for the moment
And take this advice, live by every word
Love's completely real, so forget anything that you've heard
And live for the moment now

Nothing really matters
A tremulous blue sky
A boy sailing away on a boat
With feathered eyelashes
And long tan fingers
I watch him go free
Liberated from the bonds
I begged him to keep
I stand alone
On a sunny warm day
The irony makes me smile
While I keep tears inside
Who cares if I show the ugly?
I then cry anyway
And kick up the old lace colored sand
Without him I am empty
Like a hollow china doll
Cold glass painted to look like a girl
I take a final look at the white speck in the distance
But it has already disappeared
I kneel down
And my hands find the ground
I nearly crawl out to the tide
And let my head drop in the ocean
My nose stings from the salt
And I let myself be pulled closer, further
I will never be near enough again
He isn’t coming back
He doesn’t want you
I pull myself up
And decide not to drown
