Got Ahead of Myself Again

Sitting here looking out the window
watching the rain fall in unison
with my broken dreams
But I have no one to accuse
of such a melodrama
except for myself

I’m stuck in the same old pattern
even the weather reflects the status quo
with no one to hold close
In these destitute months of enmity
everyone has left
except for myself

It’s all because I
got ahead of myself again
I was left to walk home
in the rain
It’s all because I
got ahead of myself again
I was only saved
by my doubt and my pain

I would try and make an effort to talk
but I’ll be silenced beforehand
I always imagine you taking pity on me
Dancing in the sunshine
casting shadows upon the place
we first met

It’s all because I
got ahead of myself again
I was left to walk home
in the rain
It’s all because I
got ahead of myself again
I was only saved
by my doubt and my pain

The End
