Highs & Lows

One second I say Hi
the next I wanna go
Then I go from Goodbye
to Don’t ever let me go

I listen to my angel
I always hear the devil
so I can know what’s right
every time I do wrong

One season I love you
but seasons change
Maybe I just wanna fuck you
Fuck you and have a nice day

With you, I’m fulfilled
like a glass half empty
Like my heart just spilled
With you I’m just empty

It’s a constant tug o’ war
Heaven and Hell in my mind
but I’m deaf from the battle horns
Longing to hear wind chimes

I love living on the edge
but right now I’m on the edge
6 stories up
6 feet till I’m dead

Sometimes I want to die
Then I feel so alive
But I only see life
when I’m staring at the other side

But I’m doing all right
Yeah I’m doing just fine
Like a flicker in a light
I break but still shine


Thanks for reading.
