"I want a life that sizzles and pops and makes me laugh out loud. I want my everyday to make God belly laugh, glad that he gave life to someone who loves the gift, who will use it up and wring it out and drag it around like a favorite sweater." -SN

It sucks when you're feeling alone,
when you have no one on the phone,
when you cry late at night
as your days fill with fright,
and your house doesn't feel like a home.

It sucks when you lie in your bed
with one million thoughts in your head.
His words are all lies,
you imitate his tries,
and you feel his disease only spread.

It sucks when you see him there
and you wish that he'd only care,
but he can't 'cause he's cold,
and despite what you're told,
have a desire to stare.

It sucks when he's still on your mind
but emptiness is all you can find.
You lie to yourself.
It's bad for your health,
but you dream of the day he'll be kind.

I liked reading it and placing myself in the story. For once the lyrics actually fit with the picture!

"You know you’re a writer if your friend tells you a heartbreaking story and your first reaction is – wow, that would make an incredible plot for a novel. You know you’re a smart writer if you manage to keep that reaction to yourself."

That was really good! I'm pretty sure all girls feel like this at some point and thats what makes it so perfect
