~~*SUCH*THANGS *~~

by lavish
NOT IN A MILLION YEARS
DID I EVA THINK
SUCH THANGS ALL AT ONCE
COULD HAPPEN TO ME

SUCH THANGS
LIKE LOSEN YA OWN FAMILY
THAT I ALWAYS GOTTA
PUT THROUGH MY HEAD

MY FAMILY STILL STANDS HERE
BUT TO THESE EYES OF MINE
I FIND THEM ALL DEAD

NEVA THOUGHT
IED HURT SOME BODY
FOR A LOAF OF SOME BLESSIN BREAD

THAT I COULD
CRY WATTAFALLS
INSTEAD OF TEARS WE USALLY SHED

THAT A CARD BORED BOX
COULD REPLACE A BED

THAT CRACKS IN THE SIDE WALKS
COULD COMPARE TO THE CRACKES
ALL UP IN MY HEAD

NEVA THOUGHT
I COULD RECIEVE SO MUCH PAIN
THAT IED GIVE IT ALL UP
JUST SO I COULD DENY THE BLAME
LET ANYONE TAKE IT ALL AWAY
JUST SO I DONT HAFT 2 LIVE ON FEELIN ASHAMED

CANT BELEAVE
I LET U SEE ME CRY
U A RIVER
SO FULL OF COLD BLOODED RAIN

THAT MY PAST
IS STILL THE FUTURE
BECAUSE IT ONLY LEFT A
USELESS STAIN

THAT I STILL LAY
HERE IN MY OWN WATTAFALLS
BECAUSE I LET IT ALL REMAIN THE SAME
