How We Perceive Things To Be
tongues tying knots from kisses that started
as empty conversations
Give me responses when you feel like it
you liked to make me wait
though you seek my approval to smile.
And if she's a lie and you're the truth in all of this,
where does the honesty truly begin?
I read that some can see a few feet into their futures
so watch your next step.
Surely you've chosen the long way home
I have never been a fan of scenic routes.
And nobody sees anything wrong with lying for "Pete's Sake"
but what about mine? We will find out
what's meant to be tomorrow when the shadows tell
time on the pavement, as the sun becomes paralyzed
we found truth in slanted perceptions.
Your words have carried you as far as they can, you will have
to go the rest of the way alone.
I remember us as being better than okay, once.
Time to move on, time to stand still elsewhere, where the birds
aren't watching, and family can no longer protect you as the truth
bleeds through, it has always been up for misinterpretations.
