We were chilling in his room again, just listening to music. Then he asked me if I’d ever heard this song, and played it for me when I said I hadn’t.
Then he asked me to be his girlfriend.
To kill a mocking bird is to silence the song that seduces you
’cause you need that desire in your heart to survive
And you need that burning fire in your soul
To know you’re still alive
So catch me when I fall
Or did I dive at your delight?
Remember what I lost
Like hot coals in my hand from days gone by
Like Pandora adored the euphoria as her heart raced
Like love lost you’ve got to try
Even in vain
Feels like you’ll go insane
But you’re the hardest instrument that I’ve ever had to play
In my heart I can fly
And I cannot disguise my love
There is no time
And I wouldn’t know how to
The constellations tonight are so fiercesomely bright
My love, I have no fear
I am Atticus now
So why don’t we fall into the waves?
Can’t you see how my heart yearns to misbehave?
I wish it was possible for my answer to have been yes.
