>paper heart

>all american rejects



please just don’t play with me

my paper heart will bleed
this wait for destiny won’t do
be with me please i beseech you
simple things, that make you run a-way
catch you if i can

tears fall, down your face
the taste, is something new
something that i know
moving on is, easiest when i am around you.

so bottle up old love,
and throw it out to sea,
watch it away as you cry
now a year has past
the seasons go

please just don’t play with me
my paper heart will bleed
this wait for destiny won’t do
be with me please i beseach you
simple things, that make you run a-way
catch you if i can

waiting, day to day it goes through
my lips, are sealed for her
my tongue is,
tied to, a dream of being with you
to settle for less, is not what i prefer

summer time, the nights are so long
the leaves fall down, and so do i into
the arms of a friend
winter nights
my bedside is cold, for i am gone
and spring blossoms you to me

>things are looking up

>starting my birthday, everything seems to be looking up.

first, after six months of working in the motel, i actually thought of looking for another job since i don’t think anyone notices my hard work. then eva, my manager, came down the office and stayed with me til midnight just to tell me how good i am doing – even better than the night auditor who’s been working there for more than two years!

then, looking at my sorry checkbook, i was struggling about paying bills and having a little extra cash for my brother’s birthday. when i opened the mailbox, i received a letter from the hispanic scholarship fund – with a check in it!

lastly, the big news, my dad just received his papers about his disability rating from the veterans affairs. because of that rating, he won’t have to work no more to earn some dough. not that he’s lazy, he’s anything but that, but after twenty five years of service to the navy, it is already taking its toll on his health. he totally deserves that hundred percent rating.
