solemnly sworn to kick maximum ass


by Anamieke Quinn

All of the time I spent getting to know you, I didn’t get to know you at all
And when I was thinking that we’d made some progress, it all had to go on hold
Cause you sailed away to other lands to seek your destiny
And I’ll never forget the last smile that you gave me, before you were set free

And my heart won’t stop aching, but my soul is on fire
And the lesson I’m taking, is to burn much brighter

I had my complaints and I told you about them to set all the records straight
You shared with me some of the things you’d been feeling before it was too late
And I can’t believe we had the chance to swim into the deep
I’m still holding my breath ‘til we get to the surface, so I’ll see you in my sleep

And my heart won’t stop aching, but my soul is on fire
And the lesson I’m taking, is to burn much brighter
To burn much brighter

And someday we’ll see it all, as clear as the Arizona skies
But right now this vacancy is bigger than I can describe
Cause you left behind a trail of dust that clouded up my lungs
But I can’t deny that it’s made me try to step into what I’ve become

So I’ll put on Hank Williams and pour me a whiskey and cue up some Funny or Die
I’ll remember that heat radiating around you, whenever you were nearby
Cause you touched my heart, and you touched my soul, but it still feels like a dream
And Cinco de Mayo is Tuesday my brother and I’d hoped we’d see each other again
Yes I’d hoped we’d see each other again
