    Appreciation Day

    We posted up like it was light outside
    We set each other off like fireflies
    I drew in so close like it was our last night
    And I kissed you goodbye
    And the wine starts to take its effects
    And you start moving the side of your neck
    The lips that don’t lie lied again
    Is there something there ?

    We shacked up like it was the coldest night
    I loved you like it was the end of time
    But there was nothing there
    For You.

    Did you hate the way this town rose up
    And took the weak person that you were ?
    Did you hate it enough,
    Enough to leave everyone in it in the dirt ?
    Did you hate the way that I gave up my rights,
    My rights to love anyone else ?

    You took the endorphins away,
    Now I can’t feel pain
    Except when I pretend,
    That your actually awake
    And that your still walking about
    And your still making someone shout

    But I’ll always love you
    With every step I take that leads to
    Another wasted effort, another senseless crime
    That you are to grown up to deal with at this time

    Did you hate us enough to forget ?
    Forget the ones that made you who you were ?
