What happened to the part where my script was cut. I’ve memorized these lines and I’m tired of writing lies across these arms. Living rooms and basements. I sing a song yet feel voiceless. I’m sorry if when I come home I’m not the same. The only constant that I’ve found out here is change. I take a step outside and fall into what feels right. I’m having trouble terms that I can finally learn to live and like. Like failing friendships. Dear God I’m goddamn homesick. There’s not a lot I haven’t learned from things I’ve done or places I ain’t been yet. It’s always a risk to sail your ship. At times I think I think too much I tear down walls around my life to fuck with it. There’s something you could learn from chewing on the straw that broke your back. I’m sorry if when I come home I’m not the same. What happened to the part where I finally catch my break. My neck is sore, my eyes are dry. I swear to you it is no lie, my body aches.
