such an inspiring turn to a stale dissertation
seeing you, meeting you, making a bold invitation
small talk and courtesy is where I mainly thrive
I do my best to avoid social suicide
though clearly you could only improve my reputation

sincerely I’m sorry for showing up being so fragile
but conversation on the surface is all I can handle
accolades, politics, I couldn’t give a rip
if you do, it’s okay, I’ll listen anyway
truth is I’m happy to sit here and stare as you ramble

you are the reincarnation of every part
I lost believing for more
there’s a condolence in knowing I’m closer than
I ever have been before

lately I’ve felt tired from seemingly constant rejection
but your magnetism’s reversing my current direction
you’ve got a lighthearted manner so comforting
and such a heavenly face
I could be anything, anyone, anytime
if I could get you to stay

don’t go
don’t go
don’t go
don't go
away, away

I sincerely hope it inspires you to push past what you know, to truly find yourself.
