I wrote this a couple nights ago. I literally wrote this at 12 AM and finished it at 1 AM (12:58 - 1:33, to be exact), hoping it'd help me get to sleep.

Now I've been writing songs for a while, but I've never actually gotten any advice from anyone with good experience, since I live in an area where no one is really that interested into the lyrics of songs, where my English teacher would be all wtf, and that the only songwriters I personally know happen to be "rappers" who "rap" about Wal-Mart. So please offer as much advice as you can? Please and thank you.


12 AM, I'm awake in bed
The banshees that shriek in my head
They tell me to change for the better
But from the start, I've been changing for the worse

When I talk with you, it's never the same
From what it was before these feeling came
And these feelings, they come and go
But the only thing constant's the grip you hold on me

Cut off these ties that tear me from the sky
You know I love you, but now I'd rather die
Than make you feel pain again and see you cry
It's never that easy to say goodbye

I shouldn't leave this unresolved
But I want this problem to dissolve
Like the pills that make everything better
But for me, it only gets worse

Leaving might make things worse
But the reason I sing this verse
Is to lift up this curse and put change to an end
Because I never wanna say goodbye

Don't let me see you suffer, don't let me see you cry
'Cause I know it'd kill me one day
I'll leave before you show me how much I mean to you
'Cause I know it won't be the truth

1 AM I'm on the track
Got my strings and my stuff all packed
I take one last look at the place I once loved
'Cause I'm never coming back

Cut off these ties that tear me from the sky
You know I love you, but now I'd rather die
Than make you feel pain again and see you cry
It's never that easy to say goodbye
Leaving might make things worse
But the reason I sing this verse
Is to lift up this curse and put change to an end
Because I never wanna say goodbye

'Cause I never ever wanna say goodbye.
