Damn Shame

When we first got together

You were sweet

Swept me off my feet

And things were going well til bout a month ago

at least I thought so

Until you started getting mad at me

about everything

like texting you at work

taking way too long

saying “I love you” too much

What a jerk

You know who you are!

it’s a damn shame

that you ended walking out the door

and it’s a damn shame

because we could have been oh so much more

And it really wasn’t fair,

cutting me off, right then and there

questions are hanging in the air

leaving my heart to be repaired

But you don’t care

Still it’s a damn shame

But you don’t have my love anymore

Remember when I cried over another guy

You came by

Just wipe away the tears and be with me

That’s when you won me

You said that you won’t speak to me, uninvited me

You said we can’t be friends, what’s that even mean?

This is so irritating

To no end

You know who you are

It’s a damn shame

that you ended walking out the door

and it’s a damn shame

because we could have been oh so much more

and it really wasn’t fair

cutting me off right then and there

questions are hanging me in the air

leaving my heart to be repaired

guess you’re scared

but it’s a damn shame

Now you don’t have my love anymore

You left me with my curiosity

My thoughts have increased in velocity

I just wanna know, I just wanna know, why you’ve gone solo

Cause it’s a damn shame that you ended walking out the door

and it’s a damn shame

cause we could have been oh so much more

and it really wasn’t fair,

cutting me off right then and there

questions are hanging in the air

leaving my heart to be repaired

guess you’re scared

and it’s a damn shame

that you ended walking out the door

and it’s a damn shame

because we could have been oh so much more

and it really wasn’t fair

cutting me off right then and there

questions are hanging me in the air

leaving my heart to be repaired

guess you’re scared

and it’s a damn shame

damn shame

it’s a damn shame

but you don’t have my love anymore

 

 

My Side of the Door

So here is the story, after we fell from the glory

the glory that was you and me

Well, we were intermittent at best

but those moments were so blessed

but you chose to close the door on that

so I locked the door and lost the key

I finally see what’s best for me

Please stop knocking on my door

It won’t open for you anymore

I’m on my side of the door

(Chorus)

And on my side of the door

I’m no longer at war

On this side, I’m treated right

I hear, “I love you” every night

On your side of the barricade

Your new girl is afraid

She sees you trying to get to me

She knows about our history

She threatens me through the passage way

Says, “Stay the hell away”

What is she screaming for?

I’m staying on my side of the door

Threats, I won’t respond to

Get upset or argue

It’s just over between you and me

Yeah, we had a good run

and yes, it was fun

But it was one time too many to leave

You should feel like the little lion man

I’ve had enough, it was more than I could stand

This song is the only response you see

After all the things you did to me

No, I don’t want more

Chorus

You’d rip my heart to pieces

every time you come and go

Always thinking you could come back

now the answer is no

Chorus

I won’t tell the story all about our glory

because it’s over between you and me

Manipulation Days (Verse, Chorus)

Tell me, what else could I do?

You  had me do everything and anything you wanted me to.

Maybe you’d smile and be nice for a while

but then hold up more hoops to jump through

It always has to be your way

I’m not sure of what else I can do

I don’t know how you get me to stay

after what you’ve put me through

But now I put my foot down

You won’t get me to turn around

I need to go far far away from manipulation days

Starry Eyed Optimist (Chorus)

We’ve been off

We’ve been on

and though I said, “move on”

I have my starry eyed optimist

How could I be so wrong

to think I could go on

without my starry eyed boy

whose intentions are true

and though I lost my way,

I thank God every day

I found my starry eyed optimist again

(Last Chorus)

We’re not off

We’re back on

so I wrote this song

for my starry eyed optimist…

Musings

So these are just some lyrics that I’m not sure what to do with…

 

When I talk to you there is magic and laughter but not long after you go, my head is filled with memories that could fill up centuries

You’ve got me walking in circles. I think that it’s time it straightened out.

You’ve made a home there in my mind.  I wish you’d stop pressing rewind.

I regret nothing, though you think I did something to make 6 years come to an end.  You threw us away, we don’t speak to this day.  I just miss being your friend.

I don’t want you to come back if you’re not gonna stay.

High School Sweethearts (missing verse :P)

So we started on a Sunday afternoon

In October when our romance would bloom

Had a story, said we’d tell our grandkids

Little did I know they would not exists

cause we were only high school sweet hearts

fate pushed together then tore far apart

You told me I was the one

Guess I’m only someone

I didn’t know that we were temporary

You said you would marry me

But we were only high school sweet hearts

Nothing more

We tried to make it work after graduation

but no amount of time or hesitation

could fix the problem we had in those days

it was plain to see that this was not a phase

It was time to go our separate ways

cause we were only high school sweet hearts

fate pushed together then tore far apart

wouldn’t let me see it coming, I wanted what we could have been

I thought that I was the one, and now I’m just the first one

I didn’t know that we were temporary,

I thought that you’d marry me

but we were only high school sweet hearts

only high school sweet hearts

only high school sweethearts

nothing more, more, more

so we started on a Sunday afternoon and we ended on a Friday way too soon

Fairytale (Chorus and Verse)

 

When you came into my life

I thought you were my prince

You swept me to the sky

Oh I was convinced

till you used your smoke and mirrors

so I couldn’t see any clearer

You were never a prince, you were a magician

(Chorus)

If you’re Jack and I’m Jill,

I won’t be running down that hill

after you and your stupid crown

If I’m in a tower,

I’m not too delicate a flower

to figure out how to get down

And if I’m Cinderella ,

I won’t wait for you, fella

I’ll just get a new pair of shoes

I’m taking you out of this fairytale,

It’s better without you
