tears overcome blistering rain
the truth of you arrives
and i wish i could let this die
like each wasted breath
but these things never mend
it must always end
with your head held up high
and star shaped slits
carved into each of my wrists
your hands are held against my face
craving faint reminders of every tear
that coalesces with the wintry night
i called you mine
and i can't let this die
throught the darkest night
one last heartfelt glance
will cross these constellations
and i can't let this die
i can't let this fade
1-2-3-4
deviate me frm these sacrificed seconds
spent dreaming of your eyes
pouring lies and letting my heart inhale
full breaths of you
like lungs deprived of your air
and i'm lucky i can still breathe
after what you did to me
i still have one last breath
i need to see those eyes
i still have one last breath
don't just end it all

    General CommentTime, the clip is from "American Beauty"

    Ricky Fitts says it. In fact, here's the entire thing he says:

    "It was one of those days when it's a minute away from snowing and there's this electricity in the air, you can almost hear it. And this bag was, like, dancing with me. Like a little kid begging me to play with it. For fifteen minutes. And that's the day I knew there was this entire life behind things, and... this incredibly benevolent force, that wanted me to know there was no reason to be afraid, ever. Video's a poor excuse. But it helps me remember... and I need to remember... Sometimes there's so much beauty in the world I feel like I can't take it, like my heart's going to cave in."
