"Only Eighteen"

I pray to the sky to see your face in the clouds but i'm holding my breath for nothing.
Because the sun is shining and falling fast like my hopes for you and I.
So I'll twist your words and bend them nice so they go down with my liquor.
And i'll speak out loud to nobody at all and air my thoughts to you.

Because i'm sending all the warning signs and nobody seems to care
I'm committing social suicide and gasping for your air.
So let's just say i'm invisible if I hide under the crescent moon
And all the stars seem jealous now because they're not as bright as you

I'm grateful for the time we share so please don't get me wrong
But if I could trap you like a butterfly, i'd pin you on my wall.
That would keep my sane tonight when I wonder where you are
When you try to spread your wings apart and flutter to the bars.

But instead i'll keep a diary of the ways i've let you down
And i'll write down everything I think when no one is around.
Let me wring my hands and clutch the pen with the last will I have left.
And i'll compose a list of subtleties that made me made me love you best.

With all of that the tears will run and blur the words I wrote
Like a mislaid hand on piano keys that hit a sour note.
Because I check the papers every day and expect to see my name
Dead at the age of only eighteen from the effects of a broken heart.
