All the Times that We Fought

Verse 1:

To my brother, I will

Say I wish we could be

Like the siblings in films

Or the ones on TV.

But our talks until now

Have been nothing but cold

Like the times you said how

We could never grow old

 

Chorus 1:

All the times that we fought

About nothing important

All the times that we fought

About something I forget

We are all that we’ve got.

Oh, I wish I could do

More than what I was taught

And learn how to love you.

 

Verse 2:

Am I too late to get

Why we’re growing apart?

It’s because what you said

That one time that we fought.

There are horns on my head 

At least that’s what you saw

It’s because what I said

All the times that we fought.

 

Chorus 2:

All the times that we fought

Because we were alike

All the times that we fought

Always making too light

Of the pain we were in

How I wish I could go

And restart to begin

And let my brother know.

 

Bridge:

That this can’t be the end

I don’t want to give up

We don’t need to be friends

But we need to grow up

‘Cause as brothers who share

The same blood in our veins

I just can’t help but care

And to share in your pain.

 

Chorus 3:

All the times that I fought

Because I was in need

All the times that I fought

For my brother to see

We are all that we’ve got

Oh, I wish I could do

More than what I was taught

And learn how to love you.

Don’t Leave Me On Read

In the silence is a scene that plays in my mind

It’s like hoping for a train that might never arrive

It’s like setting an alarm when I’ve run out of time.

It’s like digging for a diamond by searching the sky

 

And I feel like I’m sleeping without waking or dreaming

Like I’m simply repeating the same page I’ve been reading.

And it feels like the meaning is not what I’m seeking

But I know what I meant.

Do you know what I meant?

 

Am I wasting my breath, am I wasting my life

If I’m waiting to see if you’ll come to my side?

As I restlessly sit on the words that I’ve said,

I’m begging you, baby, don’t leave me on read.

 

Like if blood frosted over and nipped at my nose

Like the Sun coming closer to check if it glows

I have lost my good reason and I hope it shows

Since I know what I sent.

Do you know what I meant?

 

Am I wasting my breath, am I wasting my life

If I’m waiting to see if you’ll come to my side?

As I restlessly sit on the words that I’ve said,

I’m begging you, baby, don’t leave me on read.

 

Am I wasting my breath, am I wasting my time

If I’m waiting to see if the stars would align?

To the heavens I have but one meager request

Please give me an answer, don’t leave it unsaid.

Oh give me an answer, don’t leave me on read.

Half Rhyme

There’s a hole in my heart that I’ve tried to fill up

And I found a few shapes that I thought would be good

But no matter how hard I could force them in place

I could see it’s no good and start over again.

 

It’s like missing a note in a dissonant chord

I was searching for something to make me feel whole.

When I met you I didn’t want to make that mistake

But you taught me a secret that I have to face.

 

I think you and I, we’re like half-rhymes

Others say we’re wrong but I think we sound right.

And that’s why we’re like half-rhymes

We may not be perfect but I think we sound fine.

 

That if I were a puzzle then you were the piece.

But the truth was that you weren’t perfect for me.

Yet to look for perfection is foolish indeed.

I won’t burden a person to make me complete.

 

And I think you and I, we’re like half-rhymes

It may not be easy but it is worth the fight.

And that’s why we’re like half-rhymes

We may not be polished but who says we can’t shine?

 

You and are just in time

The rhythm and the beat tell me that we are alright.

I’ll be yours if you’ll be mine.

It may not sound perfect but we can still rhyme.
