where do these thoughts come from?
why are these thoughts in me?
Is there some grand reason?
Is there something in my future thats meant to be?
No one alive can always be an angel
and I’m certainly no saint
I don’t deserve a thing
I may come off as cold
But its only to protect my heart
I smile but it’s too late
cause its after you’ve walked away
Can’t find the nerve to say hello
So i’d rather let you say goodbye
Or better yet not even have me in your sight
I often can’t articulate what i feel into words
I usually don’t say what i mean
Leaving me misunderstood
but do you understand me now?
now that i’m vulnerable?
now that i can’t put up a fight
You know, sometimes i can be so carefree
With a joy that’s hard to hide
Then sometimes again it seems that all i have is worry
and then youre bound to see my other side
you see, i know i’ve done wrong
but im just a soul whose intentions are good
oh lord, even if i am misunderstood
let the misunderstanding bring peace
rather than to say what i mean and hurt somebody deep
If words can bring life and death
Then my tongue is a blazing hot sword on fire
because Oh, the things i’ve wanted to say
They’d blow up the sun
The sky would fall
Creatures unknown to man would come out of their hiding
Because all hell would most definitely break loose
but i don’t
instead i hold all the rage in
keeping my tongue pinned
Because Lord knows if i didnt, I’d only end up regretting some foolish thing i did
Some simple thing I’ve done
I guess I’ll always be misunderstood
Because I can’t explain and I wouldn’t even if I could…
