Four Letter Word

Written By: Juan Cezar/John Miklaucic

Four Letter Word

Being honest was hard for you
Always needed time to think it through
Now you’ve let it all just slip away
It was your decision, I never had a say

Want to talk about real love
Want to talk about broken hearts
Want to talk about what could’ve been
Before we fell apart
I know it’s crazy
I know that you care
It should’ve been you and me
But for us the four letter word was fear

Now I look back in retrospect
Realizing all your acts of neglect
But there were moments of absolute joy
When there were no defenses no reasons to be coy

Want to talk about real love
Want to talk about broken hearts
Want to talk about what could’ve been
Before we fell apart
I know it’s crazy
I know that you care
It should’ve been you and me
But for us the four letter word was fear

I wanted so much more than you could give
But your tattered heart was made of stone
This was no way to live
Together…but so alone

Want to talk about real love
Want to talk about broken hearts
Want to talk about what could’ve been
Before we fell apart
I know it’s crazy
I know that you care
It should’ve been you and me
But for us the four letter word was fear

Good On Paper

Written By: Juan Cezar/John Miklaucic

Your perfect look was a perfect lie
Your flawless façade your stock in trade
Never thought one day you’d need to try
To maintain this charade you played

Not an ounce of depth to your soul
Made of nothing but vapor
Thinking you’re always in control
Really you just look good on paper

Plastic boy with a plastic life
Caught up in a web of your own creation
Carved to perfection with a surgeon’s knife
A house of cards with no foundation

Not an ounce of depth to your soul
You’re nothing but a failure
Your whole life spent playing a role
Really you just look good on paper

Always calm and cool on the outside
Falling apart at the seams on the inside

Not an ounce of depth to your soul
Made of nothing but vapor
Thinking you’re always in control
Really you just look good on paper

Not an ounce of depth to your soul
You’re nothing but a failure
Your whole life spent playing a role
Really you just look good on paper

Submission Day

Written By: Juan Cezar/John Miklaucic

Love was always the bane of your existence
You were just another playa full of resistance
But it’s on the attack and you’re in its sights
No matter how hard you try to fight

Fighting so hard against the inevitable
Running so fast from the inescapable
You can try to push me away
But deep inside you know
This is your submission day

I was the one you never expected
That got through to your heart so neglected
And in the end you fought a valiant war
Now I’ve got you on your knees like no one has before

Fighting so hard against the inevitable
Running so fast from the inescapable
You can try to push me away
But deep inside you know
This is your submission day

Now it’s time to accept your fate
Your heart acquiesced at any rate
Take me as I’m standing here
It’s time to release all your fear

Fighting so hard against the inevitable
Running so fast from the inescapable
You can try to push me away
But deep inside you know
This is your submission day

Irrational Hope

Written By: Juan Cezar/John Miklaucic

I knew that one day
You’d find somebody new
Who would move you in a way
That I just couldn’t do

My irrational hope inside
Kept waiting for your change of heart
There’s nothing left of my pride
Just a man who’s falling apart

I kept thinking there was something I could do
To make you see it was me
Standing here right next to you
Waiting patiently

My irrational hope inside
Kept waiting for your change of heart
There’s nothing left of my pride
Just a man who’s falling apart

Change your mind
See what’s here
Change your heart
Isn’t it clear?

My irrational hope inside
Kept waiting for your change of heart
There’s nothing left of my pride
Just a man who’s falling apart

Involved But Not Commited

Written By: Juan Cezar/John Miklaucic

Running out of chances as fast as you can
Never look back never give a damn
Leaving broken hearts in your wake
Heedless of the claims you stake

One day you’ll see
It was always me
One day you’ll find
You’ve been left behind
Maybe then you’ll accept what you never admitted
That’s what you get for being involved but not committed

Caught up in the games you play
Never let anyone get in your way
Listening to your careless heart
Thinking it set you so apart

One day you’ll see
It was always me
One day you’ll find
You’ve been left behind
Maybe then you’ll accept what you never admitted
That’s what you get for being involved but not committed

What happens when you run out of steam?
The dreamer torn from the dream
And it’s all coming apart at the seams
You’ve run out of love to redeem

One day you’ll see
It was always me
One day you’ll find
You’ve been left behind
Maybe then you’ll accept what you never admitted
That’s what you get for being involved but not committed
