we played

truth or dare

your folks were

somewhere


we were all alone

we were all alone


some girls came

on over

hair full

of clover


we were in your home

we were in your home


it was

my turn

without

concern


i chose truth over dare

i chose truth over dare


they asked

who was

the cutest

because


they sure seemed to care

they sure seemed to care


and we played truth or dare

we were young with no care

it was our favorite game

and we were not the same


i called

your name

no one

to blame


and your face turned red

and your face turned red


and we played truth or dare

we were young with no care

it was our favorite game

and we were not the same


you were not surprised

the look in your eyes

you asked for a dare

you came to my chair


and you kissed me

and you kissed me

and you kissed me


and we played truth or dare

we were young with no care

it was our favorite game

and we were not the same

I went back

after the years

the streets were cracked

the fallen tears


i lost the way

to your door

that same day

the years before


looking for you

looking for me

looking for the kids

we used to be


i fixed my view

to find the steps

to your room

and my regrets


looking for you

looking for me

looking for the kids

we used to be


and when we closed our eyes

and the world went away

back then before goodbye

we lived for the next day


looking for you

looking for me

looking for the kids

we used to be


now i know

you can't go back

the more i know

it fades to black


looking for you

looking for me

looking for the kids

we used to be

  • jamiedrakeink

the love you gave me

that day in the bookstore

and the dress you wore

like no one before


only you

only you


the love you gave me

and the way you adored

and the way you explored

like no one before


only you

only you


the love you gave me

when you closed the door

and stayed for the morn

like no one before


only you

only you


for the love you gave

it was daring it was brave

i saw it in your eyes

so big it filled the sky

and i could not catch my breath

and i thought i'd reached my death

i had ended i had ascended

transcended for the love you gave


only you

only you
