TAKEN

If you’re getting tired of our love
No one is forcing you to stay
No hands are trying to hold you back
You’re free to walk away

But trust me our memories will haunt you
When you realize what you’ve forsaken
Oh my love, my darling you’ll come to know
That by me you’re surely taken

GRENADE

You told me it’ll be okay
That we can figure it out
We can work our way out of this mess
Find the waters outside this awful drought

I told you it’s too difficult
That we have too much at stake
It seems like the floor is crumbling quickly
With every single step we take

If we keep fighting with all we have
With all the strength that we can muster
Soon enough this love we share
Will lose all of its shine and luster

So I’m truly sorry to tell you my darling
That we can’t possibly fight this crusade
It’s time for you to finally realize
That our love’s nothing but a time-ticking grenade

DECAY

To me you are everything
Tenderness, longing, deepest desires of the heart
To me you are everything
Intensity, passion, conversations in the dark

But you’re purely an idea
Elusive and enigmatic
A creation romanticized
A secret kept in the attic

Beautiful things aren’t meant to be captured
And it should be kept that way
Because once reigned in
Thus begins their decay
