For those that cried on their Valentines, those that wrote about love but never got the courage to speak it – act it. This is to the newly weds smiling on their honeymoon. To those that yearn for love but never find it! Those conflicted in their thoughts, struggling with weird addictions. This is to you.
I swore to protect her from all my flaws and her fears,
She heard it from friends and let it slide through her ears,
Twelve days later calling, asking if we can switch up the gears,
Tired of going home alone, done with getting high with her peers,
She forgot I’m an outcast in such life, all her dreams might wake up to –

We could make a rock band and sing the hell about love,
We could dress like clowns and steal a few coins in the circus,
We can be drunk actors off the script during the whole shoot,
We can be children again lighting fireworks at the beaches,
Singing Christmas chorals, waiting for Santa to deliver,
We could to leave this world and create our own little paradise,
Unicorns, golden apples and chocolate rivers deep in our fantasies,
We can be all we want to be but we chose us,
We chose to be drug addicts of each other’s portions,
Don’t let that out your head.

Dusty roads, polluted streets and old cars,
Dead walls with charcoal graphiti and washed paint,
Worn out sandals, torn shorts with old promotion tees,
Rotting foundations, dreamless minds and crooked thinking,
Gun sounds, dead friends – it’s a lonely world,
Do you still see me in your dreams?
I doubt whether my jokes still got the humour anymore.
That’s who i am anyway.

Spent a thousand nights rubbing legs beneath the sheets to chase the cold,
Diamonds checked with your eyes, gold blended in your skin,
Ice cream with strawberries, wild disco nights,
Late late Friday nights, gears switching,
Still on fast cars or was the caviar was too good, you changed tastes?
⚫ ⚫ ⚫
Hush! That was you on Thursday movie nights,
House of cards, i believe every deck got a joker,
I should have paused that for while before we extended the storyline into the uglies,
Who knew this would be a love story?
⚫ ⚫ ⚫
Roll the dice once more, i staked my whole emotion on this bet,
Won a heart but never told a friend about it,
Rules of the gamble, never count your money at the table,
Assassins with the apple, i won’t even let your ranting sell the creed out,
This apple got… This apple was too sweet to share, you could feel some sensation in the bite,
Honey, do you know gods of death love apples too?
⚫ ⚫ ⚫
Pills and portions, i could be high all year if you let me,
Even when the tides strike and the oceans naked,
It’s a long story with gravity, don’t get me started,
Sure the fun got me hooked and i worship you to the blush on your face,
Guns and roses, still asking how a boy was held captive?
I’m not trying to lose my sanity by treating this addiction but please don’t take my life,
I got a few buds by my place, are you tryna smoke a blunt?
⚫ ⚫ ⚫
I see your eyes like champagne bubbles dancing in my flute like pretty novelties,
Getting bigger, rising to the surface like an underwater fountain,
Exploding and spitting aroma molecules into the air every time you blink,
Don’t ask me why i can’t resist a glimpse at that freckled face.

It was never my calling to make people happy,
For the sake of the sincerity in your eyes i promised to stretch my edges,
Valentines was only a crazy myth back then,
Still, i walked back home with chocolates and tens of roses,
I was selfish with trust,
I thought i had it all under control,
You came along and shuffled my thoughts,
Greased my absurd principles and overturned my ego,
I never saw myself on a balcony late night writing about a stranger,
Look at me now,
Guess i got the understanding of it all wrong.
Peace to the voices in my dreams, peace to the colours in my fantasy, peace to the struggles with my emotions, peace with the heart that never quit on hope.
