Bottles on a Wall

And so I bottle and bottle and bottle; and line them up like pegs on an abandoned washing line. I keep them there and watch from afar, watch and wait for the inevitable explosion.

Lately I’ve been lacking in motivation but you’ve made up for it in style.

Pen your words to my skin, you conjure worlds while I sleep

Anchor me to your dreams, your hopes, your fears

Let me in to your world, I can heal your pain

Watch it go, wash away, let it go for another day, now don’t be afraid

Broken hearts and false smiles are common here, boy

But cracks can be fixed and souls repaired

Tongue in cheek, we break apart just to come back together

We make promises we have no intention to keep, we make up for lost time

Red wine and cigarettes numbed the pain

Healed the scars on your skin, washed away like rain

So lonely he wonders how he’ll get through another day

Pen your words to my skin, you conjure worlds while I sleep

Let me help you through this storm, be your star in the sky

Here on the beach, count every star with me, remember this moment

The sunset fades but your eyes burn bright, you’re my star in the sky

I’ll remember this moment as the years pass by.

Pen your words to my skin, you conjure worlds while I sleep

We were everything, you were everything to me

No one’s perfect, you said; but I disagreed

Gazing into your eyes, picture perfect, I kept you next to me

But your eyes were pleading, they pleaded, please

I said goodnight, you said goodbye

Pen your words to my skin, you conjure worlds while I sleep

Forever was a promise too hard to keep

Your words will live forever in me
