This Is The Way

from by GypsyFingers



This is the way we live our lives today.
Long gone's the romance that we see in the Shakespeare plays.
Stay out late at night. Take life bite by bite.
She's looking for someone a little more original.
Phone got no credit; my bank won't debit.
This body that I want to buy, I can't afford it.
Its so obvious to the rest of us,
despite your heart of gold babe your losing focus.
Save up for this, spend it all on that.
i've changed my mind about him, now I think he is a twat
and not so long ago a young man romeo
fell in love as soon as he met the young Julliette.
Despite her love so true she wouldn't end her life for you…

I've been sitting here, drinking, my empty glass has got me thinking,
bottled up thoughts, and tensions, putting my life in suspension.
A glass full inspiration, to loosen my mind of constipation,
I have a laugh at the irony, at how this entity contains and escapes identity. A kink in my thoughts, a stitch in the process, restless nights are combating the progress, silent protest consider that virtue, all I think about is different ways to hurt you, carried away with how its supposed to be, and overwhelmed by an old solliloquoy, so Yo oh where for art thou? Knight in shining armour! With anticipation my heart will always flutter...

This is the way we live our lives today.
So many questions that we no longer know how to say.
Wish that I could find someone to read my mind.
