broken poetry for broken evenings

(in honor of disappointing people & dysfunctional families everywhere in song. figure out a tune for yourself, this guy here, he just writes lyrics.)

“crushed”

(first verse)
So what, a few petals drop off of the flower
the phone rings after waiting for too many hours
I’m just past the point of caring,
my heart ain’t double jointed;
just been left too many times
feeling way too disappointed.

(chorus)
I know for sure that I’ve made mistakes
and I don’t mind admitting as much;
I try to stay patient, stay hopeful and smile
but some things are too hot to touch.

(second verse)
Said goodbye one day to my first address,
Glad I gave up on suckling that breast
I’m really not sure that caring,
ought to be so barbed and pointed
just one too many fucking times,
left feeling disappointed.

(chorus)
Like I said I’ve made my mistakes
and I don’t mind admitting that much,
I try to stay patient, stay hopeful and kind
But at some point enough is enough.

(third verse)
I wasn’t much of a brother, as far as those things go
Now I’m finding out it’s true you reap only what you sow
I’m not so sure that caring,
for even family anointed,
just one too many fucking times,
left feeling disappointed.

(bridge)
I wish I’d done a better job but that’s now in the past
Hurt and shame and constant blame only seem so long to last
In another life I’ll do better, assuming we learn from mistakes
What worries me is mostly if the lesson doesn’t take

(chorus)
I know I’ve made so many damn mistakes
Don’t mind admitting to more,
I tried to stay patient, stay hopeful and smile
Guess I’ll have to try harder for sure

I tried to stay patient, stay hopeful and smile
Should have tried harder for sure.

As always, if you can write the music, drop me a line and we shall discuss putting it together as a song.
