Pictures


When I look through these pictures
I wish I knew how you felt in these moments.

Were you happy?
Was that smile real?
Were you sad, for some reason you never told anyone?
What were you thinking about?

I wish I could ask you.
I wish it weren't strange of me to ask such a thing.
I wish we could be closer
than the closest we'll ever get.

you aren't my crutch
you were never my crutch

i was just looking for something to lean on
while you were pulling me down

I should have known better
than to lean on the one who was pulling me.

you are beautiful
like white streaks of silver ash that touch wings and fly.
Yet...cold...
somehow.

set them free
let them shine
they shall all be stars
in your mind's sky.

月のうしお / The Moon's Tide

すう年前に
よく泣いていた
あたしは寂しかた

月のうしお
静かな夜に
きみをつれてきた

きみだけが幸せくれたんだ
でも、今...

来る時のように
きみはさった
いつまでも忘れられない


A long time ago,
I was lonely
I cried so much.

The moon's tide,
on a quiet night,
brought you.

you were the only one who gave me happiness
but, now...

as quick as you came,
you left.
I will never forget.

-Original Japanese Lyrics by Kisara Onuma and me

you can't live with an arrow in your heart forever.
you must tear it out.

it's going to be painful.
there's no anesthesia for removing love.

if you were in my arms again,
the rain would still be falling.
you aren't my sunshine anymore.


Loving you
is the last thing i'll ever be certain of.

I miss you
more than I've ever thought I could miss someone.

Where Did My Heart Go?


when you said those things,
i thought you were talking about me

then i realized
they were about him

my heart should have broken
but it didn't

there was nothing left to break

Why Do You Feel This Way?



my heart is not a train.
my heart is a pedestrian.

It chooses where it will go
and it won't wait for traffic.

What's Behind That Smile Of Yours?



"i miss you...
more than it seems."

Is Love Dead?



love is alive
all you need to do
is forget "i"
and flip the "al"
to begin with "la"

Why Won't You Forgive Me?



i promise you
one day
i'll say those words.

but not today.
not for a while.

What is Maturity Then?



maturity isn't about becoming emotionless.
it's about discovering what deserves your heart's time
and what does not.

it isn't about becoming some invincible superhuman.
it's about accepting that some things
require you to be vulnerable.

Why Don't You Find Someone Else?



because I know what my heart says
and it tells me
to die every night
and bear every day
until you are ready
to use your heart again.

and there's an ounce of hope in here
that believes the day you're ready
will be the day
I can live through the night
and know in the morning
that love is still alive.
