Awaiting Away

Can't drag my mind away
Daydreaming, nightwishing
I'd never be away from you

If I had a choice, if there weren't places to go
I don't think I would
Not enough time with you
Too much time away

I wait for your words
Calling me back
And your kiss on the head
Before you fade into the black

Sometimes I dread the future
Knowing we will be apart
Hating that fuzzy depth
Of being away from Home

I'm trying to trust
Wait it all out
See what God wants of us
Avoiding the doubt

Kiss me again, never let go
It may be presumptuous but I'm praying
You're all I'll ever know

Even When You're Gone

I can feel your lips on mine
A constant pressure
Almost a soreness

I can feel your tongue in my mouth
Adding flavor
Dancing with mine

I can smell you on my shirt
You're still with me
Even when you're gone

Where Have You Gone

I can picture you walking amidst the smoke
Adding to it yourself
With a drink in the other hand
Eyes looking for another comfort

I understand searching
And wanting something more
But I never understood
Why you looked right past the door

This movie in my head
Is sad and incomplete
Can I change the story now?
Can I change you?

Somewhere along the way, you were lost
Or maybe you were found
Do you know? Really?
Submersion got you nowhere but drowned

You're hurting, it's plain
I wish I could take it away
But I know how this works
You get through it, not over it

Pain does sit on a shelf
A trophy? Or a souvenir?
Something to take down and wear like an old coat
So familiar

You are your own person
But no human is to be trusted with its own well-being
We fail and fall
We are all crazy, expecting different results from the same actions

Turn back, come back
Take some time away
From all that calms and all that kisses
All that's not here to stay
