My Lure

I wrote a lot of songs about you 

I'll probably write a lot more 

But my future is brighter 

Without you, my dear lure 

 

It's a placebo that keeps me missing you 

The past is a fuzzy place 

When I think of all of our memories 

Only the good ones seem to play 

 

Whenever I need to snap out of it 

I something pops up out of the blue 

It reminds me of our pain 

It reminds me of the real me and you 

 

Yes I wish we weren't toxic 

I wish we created joy 

I wish we never suffered 

All the times we felt toyed 

 

If I could make things better 

I promise you I would 

But I'm even more overbearing now 

More so than from childhood 

 

I wrote a lot of songs about you 

I'll probably write a lot more 

But my future is much brighter 

Without you, my dear lure 

 

I won't be alone, I promise 

I hope that you wont too 

I doubt that you'll be alone though 

There's probably a queue 

 

Are you still blind to how loveable you are, 

The charm that you posses? 

Anyone would be lucky 

To be in your caress  

 

Sadly I can't be one of them 

Because both of us would hurt 

So I'll give you back your jacket 

But I gave away your shirt 

 

At least I have a man now 

And I'm hoping he's the one 

At first I highly doubted it 

But now he is my sun 

 

I wrote a lot of songs about you 

I'll probably write a lot more 

But my future is much brighter 

Without you, my lure
