If romeo and Juliette
Never loved and never met
The danger of love I'd soon forget
And I'm not sure,
If for them,
I'd be in thanks or in regret.
When we wear our hearts on sleeves of lace
They're bound to get ripped and torn out of place.
I couldn't look back to mend the tear
I'm sure the threads were too frayed to even repair.
Even if they weren't why would you think a garment of holes and stitches is something I'd like to wear?
Can I just have childhood innocence?
Instead of having to reminisce
Of the perfected lace I love and miss.
If you haven't learned the answer to this
I beg for your sanity to crawl out of the crevice
Where it got placed by your hands of careless.
You think that's a good place to put your mind at ease?
Let me enlighten you on this childhood you want to go back to see.
When you snuck out at dark to look for shooting stars
You went back inside to the sight of street lights and cars.
When you looked for four-leafed clovers in the mid day sun
You turned around having never found one.
When you searched for endings to rainbows where they stopped somewhere on the ground
You turned around having one never found.
When you were falling from the monkey bars
Having made tiny tears and tiny scars
You traveled back in to your bed
No night light on, no story read
Remember from here that toy you always kept
And its lullaby that always played at night before you slept
One day ceased its song for good
So stay here in this broken present exactly where you should.
