see you 02:21
i can't get enough of your face can you give me a picture of the last day we spent together ? i don't have any and think you do neither. see you in my dream asap i've been missing you see you wherever you are i wanna be there too. i can't get enough of your face whether you're coming from france, italy or spain <3
see how the birds can fly high maybe they've seen me trying... let me tell you something sometimes, i'm dying. since november i'm well grounded, that doesn't mean that i can't fall. soon from your mind i'll disappear this puts me lower than the floor. the libra i've always been is not well balanced at all i don't know what i'm doing and don't think i ever know
spring 01:41
i feel like a leaf falling from a tree in summer never reaching the ground never elevating just never everything with the sun goes down as times get harder i'm waiting for its ending as i'm falling for ever so many waves that come and go and yesterdays i'll never know let yourself float when the wind blows like paper planes you used to throw i feel like an empty room on my ceilling i'll paint a sky it's forbidden to go outside hope that we won't miss the bloom.
the weather has cured i guess i should do the same the moon is pure the sun is a test your smile is something i wanna taste again the sun today is covering my face if i'm back at your place before it is too late please don't let me go away again my world is yours with all its highs and lows i don't need the whole truth do i really have to know ?
moray eel 03:14
what am i supposed to do in spring ? i'll stay hidden like a moray eel. and if it's rainy, then maybe i'll go swimming what am i supposed to do in spring ? i'll be searching the light and if not finding, then i'll stay somewhere in abyss
nothing 01:55
where is my place ? - are you alright ? - i feel so depressed. what are your eyes looking at ? what are you laughing about ? tell me nothing i know everything is bad in my head. don't look at me while i'm such a mess if i could disappear, wish i could disappear from this place tell me nothing why can't i get out of my head ?
