Borrowed Words (addressing The Issues)Here's another speech you wish I'll swallow. Here's another cue for you to fold your ears. Do you just deal it out, or can you deal with all that I lay down? Do I really want to feel I'm forced to answer you? Hell no! It's all artificial sweetener, I'm faking I love you's, you're forcing me to. I don't need a real education; I learnt all I need from you.
You got me crawling up a mountain, hanging round your neck. You got me twisted round your finger, crawling round your legs. I lie awake and try so hard not to think of you, But who can decide what they dream, and dream I do. I've only been here for twenty something years, and already my life is nearly over. What's the point of this armor if it keeps the love away too?
It's the first time I've ever felt this lonely. Wish someone would cure this pain? It's funny, when I think things are going to work out, till you chose drugs over me. You're so lame! Every time i try to tell you how I feel, you're always feeling sorry for yourself. Thought you'd come around when I ignored you, but if you're too dumb to work it out. I'm tired of saying everything I've said before.
I'm like a beggar with no luck; I'm holding signs up on your street corner stops. Like most, you try not too see me, you stare straight ahead, you ignore the responsibility. Excuse me! Think I've mistaken you for somebody else, somebody who gave a damn, somebody more like myself. Excuse me! I've been waiting in line and I'd like to buy some of your time. I'm very anxious, eager, willing.
what's your price? You know who you are, But who am I? I'm not looking like I use to. I'm from the other side of the mirror, so nothing's looking quite as clear. One minute I'm here, the next I'm gone. Then one... two... three... four, the years were flying by. Oh, how they've soared.
I just don't care anymore. I've reached the end of my rope. Can't cry these tears anymore, and it's time that I told you so.
