I'm home, but I'm lost {December 2016}

Name-bourhood

I gave my name to a boy, and

I gave my name to a boy, and He lost it

Lost

Lost I was lost in a place near home

In messy, disheveled hair

In messy, disheveled hair In a toothless smile

In messy, disheveled hair In a toothless smile In chocolate eyes

In messy, disheveled hair In a toothless smile In chocolate eyes In the labyrinth of your skin

Searching for an unknown feeling

Searching for an unknown feeling Turning it into a game

Searching for an unknown feeling Turning it into a game Where we play with words

Searching for an unknown feeling Turning it into a game Where we play with words Before we play with hearts

You were my assigned buddy

You were my assigned buddy We had to walk hand-in-hand

You were my assigned buddy We had to walk hand-in-hand So no one would get left behind

The tour to your heart was swift

The tour to your heart was swift Like popping bubbles

The tour to your heart was swift Like popping bubbles Like popping gums

The tour to your heart was swift Like popping bubbles Like popping gums Like puppy love

You let go of me

You let go of me My doll hands

You let go of me My doll hands Replaced by dull pencils

Coloring with new-found colors

Coloring with new-found colors Picasso would be proud of the imbalance

Coloring with new-found colors Picasso would be proud of the imbalance Van Gogh would relate to the pain

The sadness is bittersweet

The sadness is bittersweet You are bittersweet

The sadness is bittersweet You are bittersweet You taste like cherry cupcakes

The sadness is bittersweet You are bittersweet You taste like cherry cupcakes With an aftertaste of cherry medicine

You've become something I dreaded

You've become something I dreaded I now dread the dream I used to dream

You've become something I dreaded I now dread the dream I used to dream My dream boy

They told me to stay away

They told me to stay away So, I stayed

I stay here at home

I stay here at home Away from you

Away from your Hair

Away from your Hair Smile

Away from your Hair Smile Eyes

Away from your Hair Smile Eyes Skin

Skin

Skin They say the epidermis changes every 2 weeks

Skin They say the epidermis changes every 2 weeks It's been months now

Skin They say the epidermis changes every 2 weeks It's been months now But you're still in mine

Lucid feelings

Lucid feelings Lucid dreams

Lucid feelings Lucid dreams Lucid

Lose it

Lose it Lose the name you hold

Lose it Lose the name you hold Lose mine

Lose it Lose the name you hold Lose mine Lose me.
