So Much Better then a Trophy

Every time I’m with someone like you
I feel like i’m a trophy to your case
What must I do to make you learn to appreciate

I’m not just that person you can call
And take out when you can
I’m so much more then someone to hold your hand

I could be so much more than that
If you only took the time
But you’re not lucky enough to hold this heart of mine

I could be the person that would
Hold your heart in it’s place
But you never take the time to keep mine safe

Cause its never about what I can do
Or what you can do for me
It’s more about all that we can really be

I could be so much more than that
If you only took the time
But you’re not lucky enough to hold this heart of mine

If only you really knew
How to appreciate what is
Can our life and love truly be better then all of this

But now i am ending this
Time to take this trophy out your case
Cause I can do so much better than this place

I could be so much more than that
If you only took the time
But you’re not lucky enough to hold this heart of mine

Potential

Do ever find yourself wondering
If the person youre talking to
Has any idea where their life is going
Or what they really want to do

You watch them go all their problems
Just trying to do all you can
But you want to be there for them
So much closer then a friend

But they might have so much to check off their list
Till they become the man you knew they could be
But you don’t want to waste all your life waiting for
A man you might not ever see

They could be so much more then who they are
You see so much potential in their eyes
Just don’t see what’s holding them back from
becoming your own first place prize

There’s so much that’s standing in their way
But there’s nothing you can really do
Cause this is the path they must walk alone
Till they find the man you always knew

I never knew how long it would take
Till I saw the man behind the mask
But I knew deep down inside of me
That you were up for the task

Now I’m looking straight ahead of me
I can see the man in front of me
So much more then what you were
So much I knew that I could see

I deserve better

Inspired by a friends experience…

Even when my friends kept telling me
About all the shit you did
I kept telling them that it’s okay
Even with all the trust you undid

Everyone that we come across
Has a flaw attached to their name
That’s just the price that we pay
When we’re playing this game

I could have settled with what I had
Tell myself it didn’t matter
But as I tell myself it wasn’t that bad
I realize I deserve so much better

You keep trying to apologize to me
Saying I’m so sorry boo
But you can tell that to somebody else
Who will trust someone like you

Somebody that will take all your crap
And learn to accept all your faults
But the person you see in front of you
Isn’t the one that you want

I could have settled with what I had
Tell myself it didn’t matter
But as I tell myself it wasn’t that bad
I realize I deserve so much better

I could have accepted all the pain
No matter how much it really hurt
Put it all up to experience
Cause it only strengthens my heart

But I’ve finally come to realize that
That’s not how real love goes
Cause I’m the only one with answers
Cause i’m the only one that know’s

So glad I didn’t settle for what I had
Cause I know how much I matter
I should have listened to how it was bad
And demand so much better

The Best Thing

Everything started out so perfectly
Then it all started to fall apart
How could you do these things to me
Thought I could trust you with my heart

I kept trying so hard to show you
Just how perfect we could be
But our story is now ending
Cause you didn’t listen to me

Cause I could be the best you’ve had
But you didn’t listen to what I say
what I say
You could’ve had it all
could’ve had it all
but now you’ve lost your way

Now you find yourself so unsure
Only thing that will love you is yourself
Everything you touch turns to dust
And you feel like you’re in a living hell

But unlike what you’re going through
I feel like i’m living the dream
I thought you were the best thing for me
But nothing’s ever what it seems

Now I’m the best i’ve ever been
Glad you didn’t listen to what I say
what I say
You don’t deserve my all
don’t deserve my all
And now I’ve found my way

 

Smoke and Mirrors

You came into my life
And tricked me into believing
How I could I believe the words you said
When you were so decieving

You worked your magic on me
I was so quick to fall
With every lie you told me
I would give you my all

But the illusion is slowly fading
I’m seeing past all your lies
I’ve found out how to get wiser
No longer will you trick me with your eyes

Now I’m breaking through the mirror
And seeing you for what you are
No longer will I be blinded by
Your undeserving heart

Cause I found out that your love
Is just smoke and mirrors
Why did I fall so easily
When ever you came near

You somehow mystified my heart
And hypnotized me with your stare
But you never truly loved me
You never really cared

But the mirror is now broken
And everything is clear as day
No longer will I be tricked by
All the lies that you’d say

Dual Sided Hero

 

You were once just a shell of a man
So much hell that you’ve been through
And I guess you could say that I was the same
Cause in my eyes I already knew

People are always saying that you need to
Step into their shoes to tell
Just how they became just who they are
Guess that’s how I knew you so well

By finding someone that knows you
See’s the beauty behind the pain
They have a way of repairing your armor
And washing away all the stains

We all need someone for protection
But sometimes we play that same role
So don’t be afraid to show just who you are
And all the hell you’ve never told

Cause behind every downed warrior
Is a hero afraid to mourn
They need to learn to just let go
Only then will their soul be reborn

By finding someone that knows you
See’s the beauty behind the pain
They have a way of repairing your armor
And washing away all the stains

Look at what life has done to us
How we helped each other grow
So much pain that was in our past
Now so much wisdom we’d come to know

We once found ourselves so broken
But with time we learned to heal
All we needed was to find someone
That understood how we feel

By finding someone that knows you
See’s the beauty behind the pain
They have a way of repairing your armor
And washing away all the stains

The Final Toast

You have always been there for me
Especially at times when I needed you most
So now I’ll be here for you right now
When it’s time to give you a final toast

Here’s to the times when I was about to break down
When I felt my world was crashing around me
And I was lucky to have you at my side
Cause you helped me find the peace I couldn’t see

How was I lucky to find someone like you
Who know’s where life would be without you
And if I had to say one last goodbye
Then here’s to the best friend I ever knew

Here’s to all the ups and downs
And the crazy times that we had
And the only person who could help
Lift me up when I was angry or sad

They were the best thing I ever found
And helped change me in so many ways
So here’s to telling them goodbye
Even when I wish they could stay
