Song #24 Week #24 - 2012 Song A Week Challenge

Song #24. A day late posting this one, but that's only the second time I've done that all year, so I'm doing alright with keeping on schedule.Life get's in the way sometimes.

Anyway, this one is sort of a poem set to music. Structure-wise, there is no chorus or bridge. A whole bunch lyrics packed into this one though.








everyone's in love with you
you could try to laugh it off
but you know it's true
deep down inside I had some proof
but my heart could only hold so much

every look from your eyes
it can see right through
and I don't have a choice but to tell the truth
so much for small talk's forgiving crutch


everywhere i go you're there
wish it didn't bother me
wish i didn't care
wish i wasn't so damn scared
to let myself feel anything

been sleepwalking for so long
now i daydream about doing wrong
i awoke to find 10 years had gone
i thought i knew everything

Now i'm a stranger in my own mind
left behind in the daily grind
in need of defending, i've been much maligned
which suit of armour did you bring?

we are ghosts living and dead
god give us our daily bread
But i'll be down at the pub instead
trying to wash away the sting

everyday is another chance
to fill our heads with dreams of romance
electricity exchanged through a fleeting glance
if only we were to touch

everything has changed for me
i'm in a life boat floating on the sea
while everyone else is sipping green tea
talking current events and such

everyone's in love with you
you could try to laugh it off
but you know it's true
deep down inside I had some proof
but my heart could only hold so much
