Narcissist

I keep most of my thoughts to a private blog or my paper journal these days.  However.  I wanted to share this, as it is pertinent and true and necessary.

When a Narcissist Says They Love You.

These are all things I’ve known for a very long time.  However, choosing to accept them as pertinent to your own life is sometimes a hard pill to swallow (especially when you’ve allowed this behavior to go on for an incredibly long time… years).  Difficult but necessary.  The bright side is that having known this for so long means that for quite some time manipulation has gone both ways.  I finally just got bored playing the game.

“There’s an echo pulling out the meaning
Rescuing a nightmare from a dream
The voices in my head are always screaming
That none of this means anything to me

And it’s a long way back from seventeen
The whispers turn into a scream
And I, I’m not coming homeSave your breath, I’m nearly
Bored to death and fading fast
Life is too short to last long
Back on Earth, I’m broken
Lost and cold and fading fast
Life is too short to last long

There’s a stranger staring at the ceiling
Rescuing a tiger from a tree
The pictures in her head are always dreaming
Each of them means everything to me

And it’s a long way back from seventeen
The whispers turn into a scream
And I, I’m not coming home

Save your breath, I’m nearly
Bored to death and fading fast
Life is too short to last long
Back on Earth, I’m broken
Lost and cold and fading fast
Life is too short to last long

Oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh

(Oh oh, oh oh)
I think I met her at the minute that the rhythm was set down
(Oh oh, oh oh)
I said I’m sorry I’m a bit of a letdown
(Oh oh, oh oh)
But all my friends are daring me to come over
(Oh oh, oh oh)
So I come over and over and over
(Oh oh, oh oh)
So let me buy you a drink and we’ll pretend that you think
(Oh oh, oh oh)
That I’m the man of your dreams come to life in a dive bar
(Oh oh, oh oh)
And we’ll go over and over and over
(Oh oh, oh oh)
And we’ll go over and over and over
(Oh oh, oh oh)
And we’ll go over and over and over
(Oh oh, oh oh)
And we’ll go over and over and over

Save your breath, I’m nearly
Bored to death and fading fast
Life is too short to last long
Back on Earth, I’m broken
Lost and cold and fading fast
Life is too short to last long

Oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
(Life is too short to last long)
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
Oh oh”
