Sometimes

Sometimes

You forget that you've ever been hurt (too painful to recall)
That love has been risked and lost (why did I bet the farm I lost it all)
That YOU have been lost (I should not have given my heart)

Sometimes 

You forget that love has been painfully empty (the love drained out the holes poked in my heart)
That despite every ounce of every thing you have poured into love,
you have gained nothing (broken empty vessel left behind)

Sometimes 

You remember that you were a girl who believed that love could be greater than the sum of the two (I've heard rumors that it existed)
That love could prove two plus two is five (but they were all too calculating)
That despite the irrationality of love, the logic couldn't be refuted (love is the only thing that matters at all)

Now you find that you always retreat (before he can)
And that you never give it a chance (that thing called love)
And that love is always too far away from now (I don't have that kind of time)
And that love will never prove forever (I'm too busy and tired for things that won't last)

Take a breath

Take a breath

You can't change the girl you are (I wear my heart on my sleeve)

And nothing is black and white (so many beautiful shades of brown)
And nothing is always or never (never trust promises or is that always expect nothing)

And now outta nowhere you're hit from left field (where did you come from if I didn't build you in my dreams)
And now always and never don't matter (I will take today I will take right now if it's with you)
And now who cares that you've been hurt (a million hurts to get to you I'd take a million more)
And now thank god for all the empty (there is room for you to fill me up)

Sometimes nothing else matters (except that I am me and you are you)
