Into the Sunset

I was never
The heroine who rode away into the sunset
I was always
The one who turned her back
And vanished
Into the moonlight

You Said

You said
I was nice
I was funny
I was surprising
I was talented
I was caring

But I am only that way
Because you
Gave me a chance to be

Limitless

Call me crazy but
there are some nights when I feel like wheeling above the stars
And some nights when I believe I really can

Deluded

We are deluded
Into finding the perfect person
Wasting time
Chasing shadows
Ignoring our capacities,
Our flaws

Never really realizing
It should be us
Who strives for perfection

Old people, Young people

Old people be all like
‘Oh, to be young again’

And I’m all like
‘You sure about that?’

Maybe it’s been so long
They’ve forgotten
All the repercussions
That come with being young

The uncertainty
The doubt
The expectations
The fear
Of growing up

Trust me,
You don’t
Want to be young
again

Okay

This is what I want you to know:
Thank you for asking me if I’m okay
But even if I’m not
I want you to know
That it’s okay not to be okay

I Dare You

Yeah, sure
Approach me
Make the mistake
Of choosing me
Out of all the other people
Eating alone
I dare you
To sit across from me
Open your mouth
Say something
(Something stupid)
I dare you
To wave at me in the hallway
To watch me pass by
(Bitch, I know I’m fabulous)
I dare you
To walk past me
Looking over my shoulder
At the computer I’m working on
I dare you to try to talk
To get my attention
To poke me–
You’ll regret it
Come at me bro
I dare you
I double dare you
