Failure 20/03/2014

Could you hold me just the once?
Show me I'm not alone tonight
Could you tell me a lie?
Promise me it'll all be alright
Somehow

Everyday, every step
It's getting a little harder to get by
Every moment that the feeling catches me out
I'm left wondering

Maybe everything's a test
And somehow I lost the basic instructions
On how to get by
Without wanting to cry
Maybe tonight anything is possible
But right now
Sitting all alone
I'm waiting to fail once and for all

Who says I have to be the listener
Of all your qualms and problems?
I guess I never had the belief
I was allowed to speak up in offence

I've had enough of acting
Of pretending I'll be fine
Had enough of softening my words
For your defence

Maybe everything's a test
And somehow I lost the basic instructions
On how to get by
Without wanting to cry
Maybe tonight anything is possible
But right now
Sitting all alone
I'm waiting to fail once and for all

Next time you get the pronoun wrong
I'll walk away without a word
Next time you say it's hurting you
I'll show you the goddamn cuts
I've had enough of playing nice
Of listening to your mournful cries

What happened to the person who overcame
All of this?

If everything is just a test
Who said I had to follow it's rules?
I'll find my own way
Doing what I got to
Maybe tonight anything is possible
Just got to let everything go
Stop worrying about you and your emotions
I never let myself fail before
And I won't start now

The End
