And You Thought I Was Joking (demo)

lyrics

Penny for my thoughts
Make a wish and toss it down
Into the well
But the well’s run dry
Every thought evaporates on my tongue

Promised I’d try
To show you what I feel inside
I keep to myself
Because there’s nothing left
Nothing really there to hide
Or confide

This is something I have to do
Maybe not thought-provoking
But it’s just what I promised you
And you thought I was joking

This is my life
Like someone else’s diary
Edited out
Factual and dry
Sterilized for public view
Nothing new

Still I hold hope inside
That someday my words will run free
To play out my part
In something bigger than me.
