Next To Me

If I thought of you

If I thought of you, I’d wish you missed me. I’d wish a thousand times a day that you second guessed your choice and wanted me back. If I thought of you, I’d imagine what you might be doing, how you might be feeling without me to hear your stories or ease your worries. I’d…

Three Dimensions

Song by Something for Kate You’re not the first to think that everything has been thought beforeI spoke to an echo and he said “I’m not satisfied I want something more” ‘Cause I am bored with three dimensionsI’m in love with three dimensionsAnd if I listen to the secondsReminds me of echolalia What now, fragments…
