You’re sitting there in your old blue jeans
You look up and smile at me
And I don’t love this feeling
Of loving you

It’s been a while since we said goodbye
And sometimes I still feel like crying
When I think about you
Think of me without you

So I close my eyes and count to to ten
And take a step back and your there again
I wish that you would just make up your mind
What will it be this time?

Well I don’t know how you got here
Or why you won’t stay gone
All I know right now is that
This wont last for long

Your standing here and you hold my hand
And it should be black and white
I know right now its simple
But I’ll hate myself tonight

Because when I close my eyes and count to ten,
And take a step back you’ll be gone again
Deep down I know that you’ve made up your mind
And it’s not me this time

And I don’t think that it’s fair
To keep me hanging on a thread
So next time that you come around I wont
Let you get inside of my head

And you’ll realize what you’ve done wrong
Finally I’ve given up I’m gone
I won’t be here when you come around
Because I’ve waited for too long

So when you close your eyes and count to ten
You’ll realize that I didn’t wait again
It took a while but I’ve made up my mind
And I’m not looking back this time

I just found this in my documets. its really old (I wrote it three years ago, freshman year). Its interesting to go back and see my writing style then compared to now(: Its funny how i used to write songs, but i have switched to writing poems
