i was riding in our truck back home from Kansas earlier today and it was raining so this song started forming in my mind. sooo here it is.

------------------------

every drop of sparkling water
brings new life to things around
dead flowers and polluted trees
all once dark shades of brown

but now they gain a new tint
lush grass covers the hills
they're growing ever quicker

but i'm standing still

yeah, i'm not moving
cause i've forgotten how
ever since you left me
i can't even wipe the water from my brow

everything moves on past me
but my legs are standing firm
go on and abuse me
but i will never learn

cause ever since you've left
my body has been numb
the beast is charging at me
but i've forgotten how to run

cause i'm standing still

yeah, i'm not moving
can you hear my silent calls
my heart's no longer beating
all because you're gone

i'd ask you to direct my step
can you help me down this road
but i'm afraid you'd push me over the edge
after your true emotions have been shown

you're the kind of girl
that great songs were written for
but you don't care
and i don't love you anymore

i would walk right past you
but i'm held against my will
you're standing in front of me

and i'm standing still

yeah, i'm not moving
can you hear my silent calls
my heart's no longer beating
all because you're gone
