08.01.11 righteous


i have no right to be righteous
if all the sacrifices i make
mean nothing to you

i have no cause to be cautious
or careless
if all that we share is on my side

and after all it's usually my fault
for crying out loud
for holding on too long
for making believe you would do
everything i'd done

please don't tire of me
i'll never tire of you
but your exhausted eyes
speak more than i'd like them too

i never asked for a guarantee
but to light up at exchanges like these

i'm not cut out for this
i'm not cut out for love
i just tear up myself
cause love is never enough
