All That Will Be Left of Us Are Broken Hearts and Promises (Meaningless)A Poem by M. Keala Milles, Jr.
I've always wanted to write a folksy-bluesy song that focuses on deep, introspective and powerful lyrics. With this one, I tried to create an argument about the insignificant interferences that we allow to destroy our relationships.
If I go, know that I love you
And I tried, but I couldn't tell you
the way I wanted to
If it seems that I 'aint gonna come back
Ask yourself why it matters so much to keep track
of all the wise-crack
things I say
It seems kind of petty to
lay down to bed with you
just for the sake of making use of our mattress
now everything we do
is Meaningless, Meaningless, Meaningless to me
If forgiveness seems to always escape you
Maybe it's just not your way to
from tearing us apart
If somehow we found we can't make it
Believe that I never tried to fake it through
or break it down
the way you did with my heart
I guess I was blind to you
Perhaps I was lying to myself
I always did find the truth a bit subjective
its Meaningless, Meaningless, Meaningless to me
I could be mistaken
I thought we were in this together
I don't think we are forsaken
So never, Never say never...
If goodbye is inevitable
You're just as liable as me
we made it this far
If I never see you again
Would it be too much to ask we pretend
It's not the end,
maybe just a new start
I don't think I could go on
Without you I don't know myself
It would be like it was before (I found you)
My life would be Meaningless, Meaningless, Meaningless
