Don't Wait for the Right Time

Don't Wait for the Right Time

A Poem by Drifter

You and me waited for the perfect time,
and we watched as the window slowly passed us by,
the only thing left now is to say our goodbyes.

You move on much quicker, I'm still in the dark,
but why would you turn back while you're shooting for the stars?
The distance is so close, but our hearts are so far.

And I know this is all my fault,
but I feel completely lost.
Will you hear me out just this once?

'cause disappointment is nothing new,
but I was in love with you,
I could just never find the right words to use.
If she makes you happy then,
I'll stand back and pretend,
all we were was nothing more than friends.

I see your deep blue eyes when I close mine,
my dreams are haunted by your perfect smile,
I'm a tortured soul, like a beaten child.
My hands are shaking, my voice is scarred,
I've found I'm allergic to a broken heart,
how can I regret when I still wish I was in your arms?

Still I know this is all my fault,
but I feel completely lost.
Will you hear me out just this once?

'cause disappointment is nothing new,
but I was in love with you,
I could just never find the right words to use.
If she makes you happy then,
I'll stand back and pretend,
all we were was nothing more than friends.

You're the only one who can ruin my day,
You're the only one who can make it, too.
You're the only one that I can't hate,
and I hate that I'm in love with you.

The truth is you could shoot me down the throat,
and the last thing I'd say before I go,
is that I'm sorry I was never good enough for you.

And I know this is all my fault,
but I am completely lost.
So will you please just hear me out just this once?

'cause disappointment is nothing new,
but I'm still head over heels for you,
but I'll never be able to find the right words to use.
They say only time will tell,
but this is putting me through hell.
Will you kill me now before I do it again?
Will you kill me now before I do it again?
Will you kill me now....

This is a song I wrote about a year ago. It probably doesn't flow well without a tune in mind. Oh well.

This is really sweet and sad :-(
The sweet thing is that she is madly in love with this guy.
The sad thing is that he has someone else.

Great song!
