"I'm in not enough futures and too many pasts."

Too Many (The One About You) by me

I've let too many people
See me cry -
Not enough of the right ones,
To those my eyes
Are dry.

Been to too many parties,
Standing alone
While the rabid crowd swarms me,
'Cause they don't know
I'm prone

To think maybe a little too much,
To wonder what it's like to be touched
On that place inside
That I hide
From everyone but you.

I've let too many friendships
Fade away,
Which is why I'm in my room
Where I have stayed
All day.

Knocked down too many walls that should
Have been left,
And now I'm strained and restrained,
Feeling the stress
In my chest.

Too many times it's all gone too far,
Too many lessons remembered by scars.
They're all here inside,
You know I'd
Like to show them to you.

I've broken too many fences,
I've dropped too much glass.
I'm in not enough futures
And too many pasts.

I've watched too many sunsets
Fade to black
Without pleading with the sun,
"Keep this view I have intact...
...come back."

I've broken too many fences,
I've dropped too much glass.
I'm in not enough futures
And too many pasts.

Too many realities were dreams.
Too many dreams were just fantasies
I believed inside
At the time -
Just like I
Believe the one about you.
