[Give Me] A Melody

It's easy to say it'll all be the same

When everyone knows that it's going to change

I'm trying my hardest to just fall asleep

But these waves that I toss in are growing too deep

I'm getting the feeling it's falling apart

Not just these four walls but also my heart

The sky's been a little too dark for too long

And, God, I've been playing the same damn ten songs

So give me a melody, something to sing

And I'll forget all about all the pain that you bring

These words couldnt mean any more than they do

Dear, I just hope that you'll realize I'm singing for you

Remember the days when we'd dance in the rain?

And we'd kiss every gray cloud and beg it to stay

Because blue skies meant summer and summer meant change

To stories that barely would fill up a page

Well, goodbye's a word that I never did learn

Like the way saying love, it just makes your heart yearn

For a place you could call home and always feel safe

From the storms and the fear of walking away

So give me a melody, something to sing

And I'll forget all about all the pain that you bring

These words couldnt mean any more than they do

Dear, I just hope that you'll realize I'm singing to you

I'm begging you, please, just stay by my side

For such a big world there's just nowhere to hide

Like all of those nights that we spent in your bed

And all of those times that I watched as you bled

Although I cant save you please know that I tried

But love is for lovers and this is just lies

So give me a melody, something to sing

And I swear that I'll give you everything

These words couldnt mean any more than they do

But this time, I've gotta let go of you...

The End
