Waiata

All these things that are left behind that I can’t feel
in the light of the day it seems so real
the look on my face is one I can’t conceal
if people ask me I lie and tell them it’s no big deal

Outside the window the snow is still falling
I tell myself that I can still hear your voice calling
inside my heart to you I am still crawling
to the beat of your drum I am still all in

You’re all up in my head as I fall onto my bed
filling me with dread and the taste of the tears I shed
I remember all the things that we said

Tried to hard to reach you I’m still trying
you know these words are true and I ain’t lying
when I’m on my own I am still crying
your name on my lips can be purifying

Look to the sky where the stars remain scattered
try to fix all the pieces of hearts shattered
wonder if anything I ever said was more than just chatter
when you’re lying with him did I ever matter

You’re all up in my head as I fall onto my bed
filling me with dread and the taste of the tears I shed
I remember all the things that we said

Sometimes I wish I could just remain sleeping
stop those thoughts in my head that keep creeping
was I ever the one who was worth keeping
did you ever hold me in your heart for safekeeping

I’ll stand in the snow and the sun and the rain
waiting for something or someone to take this pain
turn it to something real bring me love again
still believe in true love in spite of being held in chains

You’re all up in my head as I fall onto my bed
filling me with dread and the taste of the tears I shed
I remember all the things that we said

You’re all up in my head as I fall onto my bed
filling me with dread and the taste of the tears I shed
I remember all the things that we said
