I’m chasing the sun
Down the bottom of a vodka bottle
It tastes of sweetness, light and euphoria
But it fades as fast as the sunset that reminds me of you
So I turn to the tobacco goodness that sends me into a pseudo heaven
I want to feel love i want to feel hope i want to dream
But chemical aphrodisiacs can only do so much
As i fall into the depths of a hell
Oh no, it’s already four!
Oh wait I haven’t shut my door
Time to study or time to eat?
Well I can’t study until I’ve found a good seat!
I need to sharpen my pencils all day long
Can’t start until my shuffle goes to a good song
Hey look, I just got a text
Need to reply, it’s my friend, she’s slightly vexed
Must tidy my room and make my bed
Now I must make a start on dinner or my mum will see red!
Oh wait, it’s already 9, time to watch Game of Thrones and drown my sorrows
Screw revision, I’ll start tomorrow!
A sip of wine and small talk
Pray for me now and I won’t balk-
In this delightful idea of ‘fun’
Why does the very thought make me want to run?
I put on my dress hoping I look hot
A dash of red lipstick, I want to give you a shock
Striding in the room expecting all eyes on me
Instead everyone is chattering impatiently
I smile and wave to the people I know
They want cheerfull? I’ll put on a show
Down that wine, there’s my ‘happy juice’
Not too much or you people might assume I’m loose
The music starts and boy it’s loud
I have a chance to see you in the crowd
Losing myself in the song, in the moves
I almost miss seeing you near me with your funny red shoes
But alas you’re gone, before I can even utter a hello
You’re halfway across the room and I don’t want to bellow
People’s outfits are glitzy, way better than mine
I would have dressed better if I’d had enough time
I catch another glimpse of you during my favourite song
But for a second my world shatters and everything seems wrong
You’re dancing with another girl, arms round her waist
Why can’t that be me, why her in my place?
