Run, Drive, Shout


Here I am
What more do you want?
I don't expect that you know
I am not enjoying this


I watch another wedding
Of one of my friends
And I never have felt so lonely
And like I don't exist


The traffic rolls on by
As I sit on the curbside
And wonder how many people are stuck in routine
Just like me


I talk about my day
And you mutter back "Pardon?"
And I wonder how hard it is
To concentrate on a living breathing human and not a machine


Hey, I'm tired of being forgotten
And I'm tired of being alone
Can't you see I don't want to ignored
And stuck, forever, in this way?

I'm doing my best to free myself
And I'm getting better at making myself known
But I'm getting tired of living
Where things are staying the same

So I'm grabbing my keys and driving
And tying my laces up to run
I'm going to by a megaphone
So the world can hear me, son

Are you willing to come with me?

(nothing you do can) Stop Me From Loving You


Don't you know that it's
impossible for me
to stop loving you?

Nothing that you do,
intentionally or not,
can ever stop me
from loving you.

I don't care who you dated
So don't bring them up
Be in the moment now with me
Not in the past with your ex

I don't care who your family is
But I don't want drama
Sort it out so it doesn't spill
Over into our life

I don't care what you look like
But please take care of yourself
So you don't smell dead
Or look like you jumped into a dumpster

I don't care what your interests are
Music, photography, reading, math.
I will love whatever you do
Because it defines you

Be yourself with me
Because that is what I love most
I want to share that with you
About myself too

I don't care; I'll love you because I do
