Almost Enough's Songs

I started writing again so I thought I would post a few new ones here and consolidate my old ones.

Wax and Wane

For the want of something more, constellate
With eyes like looming war, dissipate
Bodies creak like feet on hardwood floors
With the nails that wiggled free from stressed out boards
I can relate

Drink the rain and breathe the sky, medicate
Loose the reigns of learned desire, separate
Sondering has left you wrecked before
Entombed your heart in some lost place you knew before
But you can't recall

Wax and wane
It's all the same
Since your love
Has gone away

Embers recollect the fire, narrate
Seasoned wood the fuel desired, instigate
Like a wife who's husbands not the same
Since he came back from that God forsaken war
What was it for?

Thanks for the kind words. I'll upload a link to my crappy soundcloud page at some point.

Here's one. It's old, but I like it.

Resignation

Consider this my resignation.
Consider this my goodbye.
I've invested too much in a lie.

I could never be the one you want me to be.

Consider all my bloody failures.
Consider all my half-assed tries.
A fake's detested, a cheat despised.

I could never be the one you want me to be.

The darkest heart is one who tries
To convince the world otherwise
I have failed every time
I've fueled the fire with my own pride
Take me down and let me go
No longer under my control
I'm stepping down and letting go
No longer under my control

Another oldie.

Hole

A hole is known by what it's not.
And I am not who I once thought myself to be.
You see,
I'm just a shell of who I was.
And I know those 'cause I feel so empty,
You see.

My chest is caving in. My walls are crumbling.
And no one's listening.
This hole goes deep within. A cavern wearing thin - me - from the inside out.

But you cannot see a hole, just who he once was, or who he's yet to be when someone fills him in. To be hole again. To be hole again.

A hole is something that is made,
Today, yesterday, or long ago.
You never know.
A hole could be a shallow grave,
Or a pothole in the road that once was paved.
You stumble over me.
