What I Need

from by Ellery



You said we should fight how this is
Going, going nowhere
Darling, being here feels just like
breathing, breathing cold air --

Hollywood and magazine --
There’s one, there’s one good ending
And you could give me everything
but you could never give me

What I need, is to say something I really mean
What I need's something more than what I'll never be

I was only trying to find
a way out, a way through this mess
You said it’s as long and wide
as my own, my forgiveness

You said years from now we’ll both be
softly, softly sleeping
and I’ll have some defining dream
and wake up, wake up breathing
