Friendship, a song, plus a drink or two

You may have my friendship,
When this song no longer reminds me of you,
Until then, just let me be.

You may have my song,
When you are but one of the crowd,
Until then, just let me be.

You may have my company, plus a drink or two,
Whenever you ask me to,
But it's better if you just let me be.

You may sing with me, blend your breath with me,
When our souls merge together may be,
But for now, just let me be, just let me be...



Inspired by 3 Rounds and a Sound by Blind Pilot
(Cuz this reminded me of you...)




They're playing our song
They're playing our song
Can you see the lights
Can you hear the hum

Of our song
I hope they get it right
I hope we dance tonight
Before we get it wrong

And the seasons
Will change us new
Be the best I've known
And you know me
I could not be stuck on you
If it were true

I was sleeping
My eyes were dark
Til you woke me
And told me that opening
Is just the start
It was...

Now I see you, til kingdom come
You're the one I want
To see me
For all the stupid shit I've done

Soil and six feet under
Killed just like we were
Before you knew you'd know me
And you know me

Blooming up from the ground
Three rounds and a sound
Like whispering you know me
You know me

So this was our song
This was our song
I still see the lights
I can see them

And the criss cross
Of what is true
Won't get to us
Cause you know me
I could not give up on you

And the fog of what is right
Won't cover us
Cause you know me
I could not give up a fight

Soil and six feet under
Killed just like we were
Before you knew you'd know me
And you know me

Blooming up from the ground
Three rounds and a sound
Like whispering you know me
You know me

  1. When he passes me by
    He's a ray of light
    Like the first drop of sun
    From the sky
    And I know he's a king
    Who deserves a queen
    But I'm not a queen
    And he doesn't see me

    When he dances he moves me
    To a smile
    And I see everything
    Near him shine
    There's a grace in his ways
    That I can't contain
    I haven't that grace
    Oh I haven't that grace

    And the closer he gets
    I can't help but hide
    So ashamed of my body and voice
    There are boundaries we pass
    In spite of the war
    But our own we can't seem to cross

    She has a way that surrounds her
    So delicate
    With a glory that reigns in her life
    She is also so much that she is not
    These things, I can't see
    Because he doesn't see me
    And he doesn't see me

    There are things we change
    If we just choose to fight
    But the walls of injustice are high

    When he passes me by
    He's a ray of light
    Like the first drop of sun
    From the sky
    And I know he's a king
    Who deserves a queen
    Someone other than me
    So different from me

    He doesn't see me
    He doesn't see me
    He doesn't see me
