Blood Sweat & Tears

By BTS

My blood, sweat and tears

My last dance

Take it away

My blood, sweat and tears

My cold breath

Take it away

My blood, sweat and tears

Even my blood, sweat and tears

Even my body, heart and soul

I know that it’s all yours

This is a spell that’ll punish me

Peaches and cream

Sweeter than sweet

Chocolate cheeks

And chocolate wings

But your wings are wings of the devil

In front of your sweet is bitter bitter

Kiss me, I don’t care if it hurts,

Hurry and choke me

So I can’t hurt any more

Baby, I don’t care if I get drunk, I’ll drink you in now

Your whiskey, deep into my throat

My blood, sweat and tears

My last dance

Take it away

My blood, sweat and tears

My cold breath

Take it away

I want you a lot, a lot, a lot

I don’t care if it hurts, tie me up

So I can’t run away

Grab me tightly and shake me

So I can’t snap out of it

Kiss me on the lips lips,

Our own little secret

I wanna be addicted to your prison

So I can’t serve anyone that’s not you

Even though I know,

I drink the poisonous Holy Grail

My blood, sweat and tears

My last dance

Take it away

My blood, sweat and tears

My cold breath

Take it away

I want you a lot, a lot, a lot

Kill me softly

Close my eyes with your touch

I can’t even reject you anyway

I can’t run away anymore

You’re too sweet, too sweet

Because you’re too sweet

My blood, sweat and tears

My blood, sweat and tears

*The repetition of ea in peaches and cream is an assonance

"Peaches and Cream"

Awake

By BTS

It’s not that I believe it

But that I want to try holding out

Because this is all that I can do

I want to remain

I want to dream more

Even so, what I’m saying is

That it’s time to leave

Yeah it’s my truth

It’s my truth

I will be covered with wounds all over

But it’s my fate

It’s my fate

Still, I want to struggle and fight

Maybe I, I can never fly

I can’t fly like the flower petals over there

Or as though I have wings

Maybe I, I can’t touch the sky

Still, I want to stretch my hand out

I want to run, just a bit more

I’m just walking and walking, among this darkness

My happy times asked me this question

You, are you really okay, it asked me

Oh no

I replied, no, I’m so afraid

Still, I hold the 6 flowers tightly in my hands

I, I’m just walking, I said

Oh no

But it’s my fate

It’s my fate

Still, I want to struggle and fight

Maybe I, I can never fly

I can’t fly like the flower petals over there

Or as though I have wings

Maybe I, I can’t touch the sky

Still, I want to stretch my hand out

I want to run, just a bit more

Wide awake wide awake wide awake

Don’t cry

Wide awake wide awake wide awake

No lie

Maybe I, I can never fly

I can’t fly like the flower petals over there

Or as though I have wings

Maybe I, I can’t touch the sky

Still, I want to stretch my hand out

I want to run,

Just a bit more

Mercy

Shawn Mendes

You've got a hold of me

Don't even know your power

I stand a hundred feet

But I fall when I'm around you

Show me an open door

Then you go and slam it on me

I can't take anymore

I'm saying baby

Please have mercy on me

Take it easy on my heart

Even though you don't mean to hurt me

You keep tearing me apart

Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart

Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart

I'd drive through the night

Just to be near you, baby

Heart old and testified

Tell me that I'm not crazy

I'm not asking for a lot

Just that you're honest with me

My pride is all I got

I'm saying baby

Please have mercy on me

Take it easy on my heart

Even though you don't mean to hurt me

You keep tearing me apart

Would you please have mercy on me

I'm a puppet on your string

And even though you got good intentions

I need you to set me free

Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart

Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart

Consuming all the air inside my lungs

Ripping all the skin from off my bones

I'm prepared to sacrifice my life

I would gladly do it twice

Consuming all the air inside my lungs

Ripping all the skin from off my bones

I'm prepared to sacrifice my life

I would gladly do it twice

Please have mercy on me

Take it easy on my heart

Even though you don't mean to hurt me

You keep tearing me apart

Would you please have mercy on me

I'm a puppet on your string

And even though you got good intentions

I need you to set me free

I'm begging you for mercy, mercy

Begging you, begging you, please, baby

I'm begging you for mercy, mercy

Ooh, I'm begging you, I'm begging you

*It's a metaphor, him being on a string means she's controlling his ever move

"I'm a puppet on Your string"

Caught In A Lie

Personal poem by me

A lie is a hole

It starts out small and gets bigger

It could hurt a person or people

You can't always get out of the hole you dug

You can't stop once you've started

Lying could become a habit like a dog digging holes

The further you dig the worse the lie

You can't just put all the dirt back and think it's all better now

The more you tell lies you lose trust

You can lose yourself in your hole of lies

*A lie is a hole is a metaphor

*Lying could become a habit like a dog digging holes

"a lie is a hole'
