You

Maybe you shouldn't have taught me How to wait for an eternity for something good to come along Maybe you should see me before this world ends Maybe you should not have held my hand and told me to wait with you a little longer Through the stormy skies and starry nights Should not have [...]

Breathe

Look, I am running again In an endless loop of night and day All of this makes me anxious So I'm running again Chasing a melody That reminds me of places I have only been in my dreams Of nostalgia and imagined peace Again, I go through the motions Follow the pattern Call it a [...]

Mary and Max

In new city, homesick, lost and absolutely closed off and shy, I started spending way too much time in the library.
