Listen

Melancholy
Whenever you call me
I play like it’s
Alright
Good night
Sleep tight
And then I just say goodbye
I’m falling
Just like you taught me
But I am so scared
You can’t
Be there
Hit the floor ‘fore you caught me

My heartbeat
It feels like it’s skipping
You took what was given
From beginning
To ending
Just close your eyes
And listen

Every so often
Feels like I’ve forgotten
And then you find me
Blind me
Remind me
And it’s like time’s rewinding
I’m no one anymore
Don’t know what I’m looking for
I wish you’d hold me
Like you told me
I’m only
Hoping for what is no more
Or hoping for some just reward
Or hoping you’ll come through that door

My heartbeat
It feels like it’s skipping
You took what was given
From beginning
To ending
Just close your eyes
And listen

So you’re going
And now I’m here lonely
Seems like the loving
Was nothing
But stuffing
Now it’s empty in there
Love doesn’t know how to spare
It teaches you how not to care

My heartbeat
It feels like it’s skipping
You took what was given
From beginning
To ending
Just close your eyes
And listen

Does it even make a difference?
Does your leaving make any sense?
I don’t know if it can
So close your eyes and listen
