you almost killed me with your smile

March 19, 2019

I didn’t take it too well
When you said we were through
You got a stone for a heart
What’s the matter with you?

You almost killed me
With your smile
So I’ll be bleeding
For a while

You were the happiest thing
In my sad little life
Then you took out my heart
With a rusty old knife

I ain’t got nothing left
But tears
I’m gonna bleed
For forty years

I didn’t take it too well
When you said we were through
You laughed in my face
When I asked if you were true

left for dead

March 9, 2019

my heart went thru the ringer
my heart bruised and bled
my heart was abandoned
my heart was left for dead

Then you woke my heart up
With your laughter and your way
You showed my heart the sunshine
On a cold and rainy day

Love is like a river
The comfort that you bring
Love is like a river
Thawing in the spring

MommyDaddy told me

March 3, 2019

I’m a good little boy
And I always obey
They said “finish all the dishes”
So I threw them away

MommyDaddy told me
I’ve been a bad boy
I’m a walking tornado
I’m designed to destroy

I’m a good little boy
I never tell a lie
You’re feet smell like farts
And that’s an ugly necktie

MommyDaddy told me
I’ve been a bad boy
I should really be nice
But I gotta annoy

I’m a good little boy
Not a greedy little hog
That’s why I ate my dessert
And gave my dinner to the dog

MommyDaddy told me
I’ve been a bad boy
They feed me bread & water
They took away my toys
