I Thought It Was You

I thought it was you -Picture of Heart

Something is missing

since we’ve been apart

A part is missing

Something has been lost

and I thought it was you

Since you’ve been gone

I thought that piece

was you

A part of me

has been missing

I truly thought

it was you

But when I look at

it closely

it was a part of me

you took –

I was missing,

not you

No Way

No Way

There’s just no stopping a speeding bullet

straight to the heart

With no clanking armour or a bullet-proof vest

so it rips you apart

There’s just no way to make it unscathed

through the day

with no love and no hope, no string to cling to,

No reason to stay

The Most Important Thing

THe most important thing racoon

She married him

when she was 23

and he was 37

She thought she’d met

Prince Charming

and he thought he’d gone

to Heaven

It didn’t take long tho’

for him to change

his song

And feel like he

was imprisoned

It happened so fast,

turned life on its arse –

she fell undeniably

and beautifully pregnant

She had her baby alone

while he drank and whored

in their home

No, it hadn’t been long

he was just bored

and it was just wrong

He had already been here

twice in his life

He had other children

and more than one wife

So with dignity

and as a lady

she took nothing

with her

just her baby

She didn’t want half

of the furniture

or a share of

the bling

She knew

she had kept

the most important thing
