If I tell you everything
Explain each piece and where it fits
Must I put it all together
or could you just help me with it?
Because I swear I’m not being lazy
and I’ll give you all the clues
It’s just I’m not the greatest speaker
but they might listen to you
and I say “they” but I mean you
I mean the voices in your head;
The little one that they call doubt,
the bloody huge one they call dread
That’s the thing dear I can ramble
Tell me where to fit the commas?
I know nouns but it’s a gamble
if and when verbs fall upon us
I say “us” but mean myself
and each scenario i’ve concocted
Once experience joins the chat
you see my mind becomes distorted
It can’t handle these small pieces
the way I know that your mind can
So how ’bout one big ol’ confession
instead of this sad sweaty hand?
I know you know that it’s quite tempting
You can have all the control
and be the master of my fate
my dear, the captain of my soul!
Wouldn’t that just be amazing?
All you have to do is listen!
Do not judge or think me mad
or wonder if I am worth kissing
Just say “stop” and I’ll stop talking
and I’ll let you take the lead
Oh lovely, I believe in you!
Just let me know what else you need.
