A buddy of mine shared this with me today. Aspiring writer and whatnot. I'm kind of impressed. Thought I'd share it with y'all too.

I don't remember the coat you used to wear
And I don't remember the feel of your hair
or the way I used to think you cared

Because these are more than memories
when their echoes of what will never be
Making for a lesser me

Every day my heart bleeds
bleeds with every beat
My chest fills with air
yet I can't breathe
Making for a lesser me

And your eyes look like they're open
but I know you can't see
or maybe you just don't care
enough
enough for you to believe
that every day since you
is a day living as a lesser me

Ever since that night you said goodbye
I find it harder and harder
just to let myself cry

And I don't remember all the ways you smiled
I don't remember the times we touched
we hugged

And I don't remember all the times I told you
told you how much I cared
told you I was nervous but not scared

Because they're more than memories
when I close my eyes only to be blinded by what I see
all the things I thought were between of you and me
Just make for a lesser me

Every day my heart bleeds
bleeds with every beat
My chest fills with air
but I still can't breathe
Making for a lesser me

And I thought your eyes were open
but maybe seeing wasn't enough

And I tried to be patient
I tried to hold on
but when only one of you is falling in love
the other is soon gone

And I hope and pray I can remember
remember your smile, your kiss
and they're just memories of this

Maybe every day my heart won't bleed
bleed with every beat
My chest will fill air
and I'll know I can breathe
I'll finally be able to be
just be me and not this lesser me

Wow. That is really good. I'd really like to hear it sung.

That makes 3 of us.

All I was given was the words. I'm wanting to hear a melody.
