That was awkward

I feel physically sick when you walk away from me,
and I feel so comfortably numb when you’re here with me,
if you would just hold my hand,
for a second of this present hour,
then you would see,
everything that I do,
an unfamiliar smile staring back at me,
that bursts my heart and makes something better out of it,
but all we are is awkward silence

the shy boy and the loud girl,
muscles attracted her,
her smile attracted him,
but that was all he was,
and she was so much more,
that he stopped trying,
but she kept pursuing,
ignoring the stares and warnings,
“You’re gonna get your heart broken”
and he said “I can’t do relationships”

and so my heart drops a thousand miles,
in a pit of hopelessness,
I’m drained from the inside,
crying on the outside,
I wish we could turn back to the first night,
that you laid eyes on me,
you put your hands on me,
but thinking back hurts me,
and so I turn the volume down,
turn my broken heart up to the frequency of depression,
tune in to life’s shitty days station,
and sit there waiting for the next train,
boarding to nowhere,
packing misfortune,
this train has broken wheels,
but that’s ok,
I took a chance with you,
I think I’m safer this way

I feel physically sick when you walk away from me,
and I feel so comfortably numb when you’re here with me,
if you would just hold my hand,
for a second of this present hour,
then you would see,
everything that I do,
an unfamiliar smile staring back at me,
that bursts my heart and makes something better out of it,
but all we are is awkward silence

all we were was nothing,
absolutely nothing,
filled with nothing,
you wanted something,
that I didn’t want,
I wanted something,
that you didn’t want,
and so all we were was awkward silence,
sitting together,
hand in hand,
down the road,
into darkness,
all we were was awkward silence

That was awkward
